Infection Control Measures

We are taking every possible precaution to keep you and our staff safe.

PPE

Practitioners wear personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This includes a face mask, gloves, an apron and eye protection (for aerosol-generating procedures).

Hygiene

You will be asked to disinfect your hands on arrival and will be provided with a face mask to wear throughout the consultation (unless you have a legal exemption). Please watch the videos below about correct hand disinfection techniques and safely putting on and taking off surgical masks.

Room disinfection

Extra time is allowed between each appointment for thorough disinfection and ventilation of the treatment room.

No linen

All linen has been removed to reduce the risk of the spread of infection. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be easily rolled up. For some treatments, you may need to undress to your undergarments, so you might want to wear sports or swimming style underwear to feel more comfortable.

Arrival procedure

When you arrive, please do not enter the clinic; wait outside, and we will come out and invite you in when we have completed the disinfection process.

*NEW* Telehealth facility

For patients who are unable to attend in person, we now offer Telehealth (virtual) appointments, during which we will teach you simple self-treatment techniques to manage your symptoms. Please get in touch with us if this is something you are interested in.

Online payments

To reduce the need for handling cash or cards, patients are asked to pre-pay online or over the phone before or soon after each appointment. Thank you for your understanding.

Pre-screening

We are pre-screening all patients before each appointment. Those patients who have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone positive for COVID-19 or who need to self-isolate will be asked to postpone their appointment.
