    • Disposable Hair Caps (in some cases)
    • Non-Latex Gloves
    • Disposable Aprons
  • Our new appointment scheduling process allows only one patient into the allocated clinic at a time, this allows us to eliminate waiting areas and promote a 2 meter distance. Please ensure you are on-time for your appointments. You may not be seen if you are late.
  • It is not permitted for you to bring anyone into the medical centre with you.
  • We ask that you do no attend the medical centre if you or someone in your household has a high temperature, a cough, loss of taste or smell, or has been sick within the last 14 days before your appointment date.

  • After your visit we will wipe down all surfaces touched with virucidal disinfectant in preparation for the next patient.
  • The Centre is professionally cleaned at the end of each day by specialist healthcare cleaners – S&S Mediclean who are specially trained in Infection Prevention and Control.
