To prevent the risk of spreading COVID 19, additional measures are in place as per NHS Guidelines:
HOUSEHOLD CONTACTSIf a member of your household has COVID or if you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive and you are not experiencing any symptoms, you may attend your appointment. We would ask you wear a face mask to reduce the risk of any spread of infection.
CHAPERONEYou may attend your appointment accompanied by a chaperone, who if you wish will be allowed in the clinic room during your appointment where possible.
ARRIVALSome surgeries are requesting patients wait outside for their appointment rather than in the waiting room. PML Patients will be collected by our clinician and taken to your appointment.
MASKS NHS guidelines no longer stipulate masks must be worn in clinical environments. However we ask patients, where possible, to wear a face covering during their appointment to ensure the ongoing safety for our patients and staff. We appreciate your understanding.
Please note: we try to ensure our clinics are run to time, however there may be instances when you could be waiting longer than 5 minutes outside for your appointment.
Many thanks for your co-operation and patience with the ongoing management of COVID.
