As lockdown restrictions begin to ease, we want to update you on how busy our Face & Eye team has been behind the scenes preparing for our reopening on 6 July 2020 in line with Government guidelines.
Our team has all the appropriate PPE and is fully equipped to welcome you back to Face & Eye at the appropriate time. The clinic has always prided itself on the cleanliness of its facilities, and our cleaning regime reflects the revised infection control guidance from Public Health England for the prevention of transmission of Covid-19. The number of patients present within the clinic at any one time will be reduced, with longer gaps between appointments so that our staff can clean areas properly before the next patient is brought through to see the consultants or nurses.
Our return will be a gradual process to ensure that our new protocols are working well. In line with the guidelines of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists, we will start with clinic consultations and low risk surgical procedures for our patients.
We are introducing video consultations and video follow up appointments where appropriate so that you can stay in the safety of your home whilst still having access to your consultant.
When you visit our clinic, it will look a little different from any previous visits. We have had to removed leaflets and our before and after portfolios. We have created signage to ensure you are well informed of our social distancing measures and our practices that we have put in place to protect you and our team.
Please rest assured that you and our new patients continue to be at the heart of everything we do and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as Government guidance allows. As always, if you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our warmest wishes to you.
The Face & Eye Team
