Precautious measures against COVID-19

To reduce the spread of COVID 19, we will be contacting participants before their appointments to ensure they are well and have not been to any affected areas. In order to protect both participants and staff, we have implemented daily temperature checking for all. We will ask all participants to check in via our QR code or log book. Masks will be provided if required. This continuous monitoring is the only way to reduce the incidence of infection. We trust that you understand that we have your best interests at heart and hope you stay well.
