Covid-19 Update

Covid – 19 Procedures

Before attending an appointment?

  • Patients who are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill from Covid-19  (click here for details) should consider very carefully whether the benefit of attending their appointment outweighs the risk.
  • Patients with a cough, sneeze or fever or have experienced a loss of taste or smell within the last 5 days should carry out a LFT before attending their appointment.
  • Patients with a cough, sneeze or fever or a loss of taste or smell should not attend their appointment.
  • Patients who have come into contact with anyone with a confirmed Covid-19 diagnosis should carry out a LFT before attending their appointment.
  • Patients who have been instructed by the government to self isolate should not book/attend their appointment.

What to expect from an appointment?

  • Appointments have been scheduled with 5 minutes between each appointment. This means patients can come in and wait without coming in to contact with other patients. If there is another patient car outside please wait in your car until the patient has left.
  • Patients will wash their hands as soon as they enter the practice room and on leaving the clinic.
  • Frequently touched surfaces e.g. taps, chairs, treatment couch will be wiped down and disinfected between patients.
  • Due to the nature of the treatment a social distance of 2m cannot be maintained all of the time so a mask will need to be worn by practitioner and patient. As a practitioner I will be wearing a Type II Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM). Patients must wear a surgical mask (does not need to be FRSM). If you do not have a mask then one will be provided at your appointment.
  • Water will not be provided but patients are welcome to bring their own.
  • Toilet facilities are available but please try and avoid using them, if possible, by going to the toilet before you leave home.
Please bear in mind that Covid-19 restrictions may fluctuate and at any time the BAcC may have to ask all members to limit patient numbers.
