CORONAVIRUS Advice 28/10/20

We are specialists in safe non-surgical treatments to enhance your natural beauty.

All the treatments offered are carried out by professionals trained specifically in the procedures offered.

What changes are happening in clinic?

As usual we are not open to the public and are only accepting pre-booked appointments. Staff are able to answer all queries and calls via email, telephone and text as usual.

You may notice staff cleaning door handles, cleaning sofas you have gotten up from, and going into loos after you for cleaning. Any hard surfaces that you have to touch, like external door handles or cash machines, will be disinfected in between patients. Please try and pay with Apple or Android pay if possible.

All non essential materials such as books and magazines may have been removed from clinic.

In addition to that we are asking everyone to wash their hands as soon as they come into clinic or use the alcohol hand gel provided.

We have made all appointment times longer to avoid overlap with other patients. This is to ensure you come into contact with the least number of people possible.

Please try and limit to coming on your own if possible, we are attempting to only have a maximum of 1 patient and obviously the doctor in the doctor’s room at any given time. All our doctors’ rooms have windows and electric air extraction units, and the medical couches are disinfected between patients as normal.

Only attend your appointment at the confirmed time on your text/email reminder. Please stay in your car if you arrive early to minimise any overlap with any other patients.

What to do if you have symptoms?

If you have any of these symptoms below and they are unexpected and unexplained please DO NOT ATTEND your appointment:

Fever

Cough

Sore throat

Runny nose

New loss of sense of smell or taste

Please use NHS 111 services online to troubleshoot what you should be doing. Your booking deposit is safe and will be refunded if you do not make your appointment.

If you have already isolated in the past for 7 days with symptoms, you can attend your appointment as long as you do not have a new fever of >37.8°C

In addition, if you have had a previous positive COVID swab, then you can attend your appointment.

At this stage we have been advised that children are largely unaffected by the virus, but still remain cautious. Do not ask elderly relatives to look after your children, try and isolate from them as per the government advice. There is general advice regarding not to take ibuprofen if you have a fever, If you require something to bring the temperature down, please try paracetamol, or even ice-cream which may give you some much needed calories!

How do social distancing and shielding help?

Each person who is infected with COVID-19 can infect another 3 people. These people can then infect another 3 people and then this chain causes an uncontrolled multiplication of cases. If you can limit the chance of passing it on, this will help to reduce the number of cases, which will in turn help the NHS cope.

If you have any further queries or are worried about anything please send us an email or give us a call.
