Enhanced Safety and Hygiene Measures at Altruderm Clinic During COVID-19
Our consultation process is now also supported with video calls when appropriate, for example for simple review appointments. All appointments are with the doctor.
You will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire prior to your face-to-face appointment. We will contact you prior to your appointment to enquire if any details have changed.
Please wear a facemask on entry to the clinic otherwise one will be provided.
We have introduced sanitizing stations in clinic which should be used by patients on entry and exit of the clinic.
Additional, enhanced cleaning measures are in place between each patient and at
the end of the clinic day, now including air filtration.
Clinic staff will wear facemasks and full PPE equipment for procedures.
Appointments will be staggered to minimise risk of crossover and facilitate time for enhanced cleaning measures.
We accept card payments only during this time. Unfortunately, we are not able to serve tea or coffee however we are happy to provide bottled water. Perspex screens have been erected.
Patients should attend appointments alone but may contact us to arrange special assistance if required.
