The practice at this time remains open.
We will continue to undertake the infection control procedures which were put in place prior to re-opening after the first lockdown. The availability of PPE and our evolving understanding of the virus and it’s behaviour seemed to allow that to occur with acceptable safety.
However there is now a new variant of the virus which seems more transmissible and whilst this will not at the moment require us to close, I would urge caution in any of those who feel they may be vulnerable and in all of us against unnecessary exposure to risk.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns or doubts about the advisability of treatment. Please see the contact us page for for contact details of the practice.
We have no problem with short notice cancellations at this time.
The health and safety of patients and practitioners remains our priority.
I hope this short video will help answer some of the questions you might have regarding what to expect if you come for treatment.
generally we would ask patients to arrive as close to their appointment time as possible to avoid having to wait in the waiting room.
to consider wearing a mask or face cover when in the practice to reduce the risk of cross infection to the practitioner and other patients. wearing of masks continues to be a valid response to what seems a largely airbourne droplet spread virus. it is not an obligation and ventilation and air ffiltration systems are in place in the practice.
to pay by contactless card if possible; cash is still accepted if you prefer.
to inform me, prior to arrival if you are experiencing new symptoms associated with the covid infection or if you have experienced these symptoms (new cough/temperature/sore throat/unusual loss of smell/taste) over the 10 days prior to your appointment.
to ensure you inform the practitioner if you have any of the symptoms associated with covid-19 in the 48 hours after a treatment.
toilet facilities remain available. Please use the paper towels after hand washing.
Please feel free to contact us by phone or email if you have any concerns or questions.
