The impact of Coronavirus will affect patient care in different ways and we are here to help. Below are some measures we have taken to reduce the risk to you, when visiting our practice.
If you have a long term follow up of a problem eg a 12 month review or similar, then please consider rescheduling in 2 -3 months.
Alternatively you may be appropriate for phone consultation. These bookings will be starting in 7 days or so.
Please come to your appt with your own pen if possible, to fill out and sign any paperwork.
If you have travelled or have been in contact with someone who has travelled overseas, please wait a minimum of 14 days before rescheduling.
Our waiting room magazines have been discarded .
If your consultation is for results and xrays and discussion of treatment possibilities, it may be appropriate for a billed phone consultation instead of coming in. Please ask about booking this instead.
Please hand wash with soap after using our bathroom.
Please use use the skin sanitizer provided.
We have reduced the numbers of patients attending our sessions with smaller numbers coming at different times, aiming to have emptier waiting rooms.
We have got rid of clean sheets on our exam tables, these tables will be wiped down with alcoholic cleaner after each use.
Please allow the doctor to open and close the door of your consultation room. This minimizes the effect of different patients touching the surroundings.We have used alcoholic sanitizer on the door handles and surrounds.
If you are sick especially with a respiratory illness, please reschedule when you have recovered.
