Covid Policy - November 2021
In order to practise safely during the current COVID-19 pandemic the following precautions will be taken whilst consulting.
Clients will be asked to wear a face mask while in the waiting room.
You may wear a mask to your appointment and the clinician will wear one at your request. During your consultation the clinician will remain at least 1 metre away from the you to observe current social distancing guidelines, apart from when needing to take a blood pressure reading.
During your consultation, if you feel it is appropriate, you may remove your face mask whilst remaining 1 metre away from the clinician.
Sufficient time between clients will be allowed to clean surfaces and equipment with anti bacterial wipes.
There are hand washing facilities in the building and in the consulting room and sanitiser will be provided to use as necessary.
SMC encourages payment by BACS at the time of the appointment. We would prefer not to handle cash at the moment.
