We are following all the guidelines to keep patients safe.

Therefore we ask all patients to;

- Answer the COVID questions before arriving for your appointment
- Please arrive on time (not early )
- Masks – bring and wear your mask before you enter Reception
- Wash your hands with soap and water on arrival  (Washing our hands is a vital part of helping to reduce the spread of the virus as well as keeping other health issues at bay)- Please do not wear gloves, we will ask you to remove them as we do not know where they have been previously worn
- Social distance – please try to keep 2 metres or 6 feet away from other people including Reception staff
- Only bring a carer when essential
- Please do not bring additional bags

If, on the morning of your appointment if you don’t feel well, please DO NOT come to the clinic but call us on 0208 546 9626 to rebook.

And we will …

Measure and record your temperature before entering the clinic. This is to check you do not have a fever (37 degrees or above) If you do have a fever, we will not allow you to enter but we will suggest you arrange a COVID test and self isolate. We will of course welcome you back once you either have a negative test and you no longer have a fever, or after your 10 day self isolation.

Wear masks when meeting, greeting and treating you. We totally understand that it is hot under a mask but you can take your mask off once outside. Wearing masks is about keeping all of our most vulnerable patients safe – thank you for your understanding
- Wear extra PPE (aprons, masks and where necessary visors)
- Continue our extremely high level of cleaning
- Run our air purifier in the clinic room
- Open windows and doors often (we are sorry if it’s a little colder than normal)
- Use “foggers” to sanitise the air throughout our clinic.

Our foggers use a fine mist containing a harmless,  all-natural and 100% biodegradeable chemical. (It’s better and safer than chlorine bleach)

We provide an NHS app venue QR code to allow people to “check-in” to our clinic – but in addition our diary also records visits should we need to “Track and Trace”

- We are of course also looking after all our staff by “bubbling” teams, frequent hand-washing and cleaning in all areas
- We have extended our opening hours ... our current opening hours are:

Monday - Friday: 8am - 5:30pm

Tuesday evening 5pm - 9pm

Wednesday evening 5pm - 7pm

Saturday: 9am - 5pm

We are closed on Sundays but will return your call on Monday morning.

Thank you for helping us keep our Clinic safe for everyone. We appreciate your help.

If you have any questions or concerns - please just call us on 0208 546 9626  - we will do our very best to re-assure you, and keep you safe.Thank you so much, best wishes and stay healthy
