COVID-19 RETURN TO PRACTICE POLICY
In these unprecedented times Healthcare is undergoing change. In the immediate future our health centre has to step up to the plate, and adapt to this Covid-19 period. Safety of both our patients and your clinician is of paramount importance.
With this information in mind there will be a few changes implemented:
Patients and clinicians will be required to wear a mask at all times whilst in clinic. A strict policy of: No mask = No appointment! will be implemented. Please bring your own if you have one. If not we will provide you with one. (Please note we only have a limited supply). You will also see your clinician wearing PPE of disposable apron, mask and gloves. This is the minimum required level for patient contact in our setting.
Patients and clinicians will be required to sanitise their hands in the reception area prior to treatment. The downstairs toilet is closed to limit potential surface spread (until further notice).
Please leave as many accessory items in the car as you are able to. This includes watches and jewellery etc. The less there is on you, the less chance there is of contamination.
Please wait in your car until a few minutes before your appointment time. Only one patient is allowed in the reception area at any one time. This should only be to pay or make another booking. All chairs in the waiting area have been removed to limit surface contamination. Friends and family will be asked to wait in the car (unless treating a minor, in which case their legal guardian can be present).
All treatment rooms including door handles and treatment tables will be thoroughly cleaned between each patient visit. We apologise as on occasion this may mean a longer wait between appointments.
Please note: Contactless payment is now available on all cards upto £45. We no longer accept cash due to infection control.
If you are experiencing any signs and symptoms of Covid-19 please reschedule your appointment; cough, fever (above 38°), sore throat, extreme fatigue/ tiredness. Also if you have been exposed to anyone with suspected or diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 14 days; Worked or attended a clinic facility/ hospital treating Covid-19 patients. Free phone consultations and support are available for these patients.
On arrival you may get your temperature taken.
Please feel free to contact the practice you have any queries. Let's all stay safe.
