Covid-19 Infection Control Policy

1. Pre-Screen contact (phone call/text/email)

Before the appointment, please do contact me if you have any Covid-19 symptoms or if you have been with anyone with symptoms? If you are in a risk category (eg. heart, lung, diabetes, otherwise immuno-suppressed) or if you have dependants in a risk category, you need to consider that risk. Even if you are still happy to have a consultation, but have further questions, do contact me.

2. Hygiene

Sanitisers/wipes will be used between appointments on all surfaces.

Plastic pillow cases and couch covers are now used which will be disinfected between appointments.

Door handles, seats etc.. will all be disinfected between appointments.

Sanitiser gel is available before and after your appointment.

3. Waiting for an appointment

I recommend waiting in your car or by your mode of transport (bicycle/motorbike) until just before your appointment. I will either come and collect you or if you prefer, I can text you to come through for the appointment.

4. Clinic Session (including PPE)

I will ask you to use the sanitiser provided (or use your own) on entering and leaving the clinic room.

I will be wearing an IIR mask, gloves, glasses and apron during the appointment.

I strongly recommend you wear a mask during the appointment, unless there is a good reason not to. Single use IIR surgical masks can be provided if necessary.

Disposal of single use PPEs and cleaning of reusable equipment will be done between appointments.

Certain techniques may not be done due to risk of infection. If this is the case, I will inform you at the time.

Payment is preferred by credit/debit card or on your smartphone by ApplePay, GooglePay or SamsungPay. Cash/cheques will be accepted if absolutely necessary. 

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact me at [email protected] or 07915 664936. 

Thanks Tom
