Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our surgery. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.
We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by the governing bodies. We are up-to-date on new guidance that has been issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.
Throughout the day all clinical areas and common areas, including door handles and surfaces will be regularly disinfected, this is in addition to our normal cross infection protocols.
The whole team will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), in line with government guidance. This may look different to what we have previously worn. This is to keep you and our team safe.
Regular hand washing will be adhered to by the whole team, we will also ask you to do the same, when entering and leaving the practice.
Social distance measures have been introduced and screens have been added to our reception area.
