If a patient does need to attend any of our clinics in person please read the information below which explains  the current process we are following:

  • Patients should be advised  not attend if they feel they may have symptoms of COVID 19 infection or have a temperature – they will not be allowed to attend for their appointment if they have a temperature
  • The Hospitals are checking patient temperatures on arrival at the main reception and this can delay a patient attending on time for their appointment so we advise arriving 10 minutes earlier.
  • Patients must wear a face covering or mask at all times while in the hospital
  • Please note that main doors to our clinics may be closed and they will have to knock on the door to be allowed in when they arrive at the clinic
  • They will be asked to sit in a socially distant way in the waiting area
  • They may be asked to enter and exit through different doors and staff will guide them as to what to do our clinics
