Coastal Eye Centre COVID-19 Policy - Management of patients

Updated 31.03.2022

 

Coastal Eye Centre has obligations under occupational health and safety legislation and the Medical Board Code of Conduct to keep patients and staff safe. We have conducted a risk assessment of the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission at our practice. The nature of ophthalmology treatment does not allow social distancing between practitioner and patient, and we are implementing this policy to reduce the risk of transmission.

From the 31st  March 2022 the following rules will apply:

  • Face masks must be fitted prior to entering Coastal Eye Centre and must be worn at all times. If you have a valid exemption, please contact our office prior to your consultation.
  • Only patients to enter Coastal Eye Centre for their appointment, only 1 carer may enter our premises.
  • If you are displaying any respiratory, cold or flu like symptoms or covid symptoms, please phone Coastal Eye Centre and your appointment will be rebooked. This applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated patients

 

** Please note - This can change with the emergence of new variants or changes in incidence of Covid **

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding during this pandemic.
