COVID-19 In Practice Protocol

What measures have we taken to ensure staff and patient safety?

  1. Increased appointment length, to reduce the number of people in the practice at any time
  2. Full PPE is worn at all times by staff as directed by NHS protocols
  3. We have installed perspex screens at our reception and dispensing desks for increased safety
  4. All equipment in our examination room is thoroughly disinfected between patients
  5. All frames on display are disinfected following contact with each patient

Please read before visiting the practice:
We kindly request:

  1. If possible to attend your appointment alone and where necessary with a carer or only one other family member.
  2. Please ensure you wear a good fitting mask/face covering to your visit to the practice.
  3. Please use the dedicated hygiene gel at reception on entering
  4. If you take prescribed medications, please bring a list or prescription copy to your appointment

We fully appreciate these measure are inconvenient, but maintaining social distancing and reducing the risks for potential infections is our priority at the moment.
