COVID - 19 Update
Following the advice of our professional body, I am continuing to see patients remotely, via video-consultation, or in person. We have been advised where possible to triage patients remotely in the first instance. However, for those who require to be seen, we are able to arrange in person consultations where necessary.
We have carried out a full risk assessment and are adopting a new protocol (an in-depth Covid consent form is now required to be signed by each patient and the treatment room and surfaces are cleaned between patients). Patients are asked to remain in their vehicles if possible, to avoid sitting in the waiting area ahead of their appointment time. We are encouraging patients to attend alone to minimise social contact. Patients who are seen face to face have their temperature taken, are required to wear face masks and to use hand sanitiser on arrival and departure. Practice staff are wearing PPE (Personal Protection Equipment).
Please do contact me if you're in need of care. 01620 894495
