How Onlookers are helping to keep you safe through COVID-19

Covid-19 is still in existence but is now thought to be less of a risk. In line with recent National Healthcare Guidance we have now relaxed some of our infection control procedures.

Mask policy

While masks are no longer compulsory when moving around the practice our clinical staff will continue to wear a mask when in close proximity with patients and we ask that you do the same if possible.
As an eye test requires a prolonged period of close contact we ask that you continue to wear a mask in the consulting room.
If you feel unsafe in an environment where other people are not wearing masks then please let us know and we will arrange for you to attend the practice at a quieter time.

Limiting numbers

In order to ensure reduced waiting times we are continuing to book appointments for all services, but our door is no longer locked so you are welcome to call in and make an appointment, and you can now wait for your appointment in our waiting area rather than in your car as before.

Things are a little different

Things inside the practice will look a little different from what you may be used to. Our staff are no longer wearing full PPE but will continue to wear a mask if they are close to you. There are Perspex screens around our desks to create a safe area, there are hand sanitising stations conveniently located throughout the practice and we have also invested heavily in new sight testing equipment to allow the optometrist to maintain social distancing as much as possible in the test room.
