The safety of our patients and staff is always our number one priority and, during this pandemic, so too is the well-being of the entire nation.

Our safety measures are constantly under review. We have undertaken extensive risk assessments specific to Covid-19 based on firm and up to date scientific evidence. These have resulted in both physical and operational changes in all our clinics with safety as the top consideration. We are hugely grateful for the understanding showed by our patients, despite the inconvenience and disappointment caused, the feedback from our patients has also been great on the Covid-19 procedures.

On restarting our services after the first lockdown we introduced strict Coronavirus safety restrictions.
Fortunately, we have had no incidents of transmission of infection in any of our clinics. As the incidence of
Covid 19 continues to reduce, and most patients and staff are now vaccinated, we are pleased to say that
we are now able to carefully begin relaxing some of our restrictions.

 

At our clinics:

  • Social distancing measures will be enforced in the clinic where possible
  • Staff will wear PPE including face masks & their temperature will be measured
  • Extra cleaning procedures have been introduced and additional time will be scheduled between appointments to enable these
  • Glass screens have been installed between receptionists and patients
  • Tape has been placed on floors to indicate social distancing positions
  • Signage has been put up to remind you of all these procedures
  • Magazines and newspapers have been removed
  • Close contact time will be minimised which may impact on casual conversation
  • No patient, staff member or other visitor will be permitted in the clinic if they, or a member of their household, has symptoms of Covid-19

 

Additional measures:

Clinically extremely vulnerable and clinically vulnerable people (see the Government’s Covid-19 vulnerable groups) are advised to continue to follow the Government’s latest advice. We are screening all patients to check their vulnerability. If you are clinically vulnerable and you wish to attend an appointment, we will honour your decision. If the government’s advice is you must shield, regrettably it is unlikely we will be able to see you until the advice changes. See more information on the NHS website link: Who’s at Higher Risk from Coronavirus? and Advice for people at high risk

 

See & treat on the same day We also offer see & treat options which means that you can have a consultation & treatment on the same day which has proven to be extremely popular during the last 12 months. If this is something of interest then you will need to email us some photos of your varicose veins so we can identify whether you are suitable for the see & treat option.
