CORONAVIRUS UPDATE : JUNE 2020
The health and safety of our patients and staff is our absolute priority and we have robust procedures to prevent infection and transmission.
-NHS services are still operating both online, over the phone and in some cases in person.
We are working hard to ensure we can safely increase appointments.
When attending an appointment it is important that you follow safety measures. There will be lots of useful signage and in some areas one-way systems inside our building so please follow these as they are there to ensure your safety.
When attending an appointment you will be asked to wear a face covering. All staff will also have to do the same.
Face coverings must cover the mouth and nose and can be in the form of a mask, scarf or bandanna. Government guidance has a section on face coverings that explains they may reduce infection risks, especially from people displaying no symptoms. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 2 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. For example, primary age children unassisted, or those with respiratory conditions. You can make face-coverings at home. The key thing is it should cover the mouth and nose.
If you’re attending an appointment, you will be expected to:
wear a face covering (mask, scarf or bandanna)
-keep apart 2m and respect social distancing measures in place
regularly clean your hands.
