2nd November 2020
We will be continuing as usual during the month long 'lockdown' that has recently been announced. The exceptions to staying at home include 'for any medical concerns, reasons, appointments and emergencies'. This accords with our Professional body's current advice that as long as we are conducting appointments under appropriate PPE conditions we can continue to work.
Please assume that all appointments will continue as normal, any changes to this advice will be posted here when known.
We are committed to keeping the Practice and everyone who enters it as safe as possible, in particular from exposure to Covid 19. To this end we are taking many additional measures
- To facilitate social distancing our appointment numbers are significantly reduced, and the times staggered to minimise the possibility of patients meeting.
- We are asking patients to turn up precisely on time, so they will be able to enter straight into the treatment room, currently no one is allowed to wait in reception.
- Everyone who enters the practice must wear a mask and they must sanitise their hands, (We have a wall sanitiser near the entrance).
- Where appropriate, practitioners will be wearing gloves and aprons that will be changed between patients. They may wear a face shield where deemed necessary.
- Between patients, the rooms and couches will be wiped down and sanitised, as will all areas touched by the patient. The practice is being thoroughly and regularly cleaned, with additional cleaning following practitioners being in.
- We request patients to not come in if they have any symptoms associated with Covid 19 or are cohabiting, or have met anyone with Covid 19 in the last 2 weeks.
