These measures are based on the updated government guidance and the PPE advice as provided by the NHS, CSP and HCPC. They will be reviewed regularly.

Patients - what you need to know. 

 

Appointment Booking

  • Prior to attending your appointment, you will be asked to complete a symptom screening questionnaire. This can be done over the phone, or via email. When you arrive, we will ask you again, verbally, that you have no symptoms.  This is to ensure that if you (or the people you live with) have had any symptoms of covid-19 that you do not attend the clinic. This is for your safety, and the safety of our staff and other clients. ​​
