We have carried out risk assessments of our activities. Some of the precautions we have taken to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission are detailed below:
Patients contacting us for an appointment are triaged by a member of our team, over the telephone, to establish their Covid-status. As part of the triage, we also collect information to determine your vulnerability to infection. This information is passed to your practitioner, who will decide whether it’s safe enough for you to attend for treatment. Your practitioner may ring you to clarify certain details.
Once at the practice, your temperature will be taken (must fall within the guidelines) and a consent form signed. We’ll follow government social distancing guidelines, don personal protective equipment (PPE), and keep the numbers using the clinic at any one time to as few as possible (throughput of patients has been adapted accordingly). Special cleaning and waste-disposal protocols are also in place.
