Ensuring your safety at our Practice after the 19th July 2021
Many things may change after the 19th July, but we will still continue to maintain strict COVID measures within the practice, for your safety and that of our staff.
We have put into place a number of precautions which we have highlighted on this page. We hope this may prepare you for when you visit us. Whilst things are not the same at the moment, we will do everything we can to help you access our services safely.
Patients will be asked to continue to wear masks and use the hand sanitiser provided and only attend alone. If you have any symptoms please let us know and we will gladly rearrange your appointment.
We are now also offering all patients, at time of booking, a full examination including OCT and optomap as using these technologies help us to keep close proximity to patients to a minimum which helps with our safety measures.
