Infection Control

We strive to maintain a clean and organized clinic, providing a secure environment for both our patients and staff. Our modern, purpose-built clinic is a source of pride, as we consistently uphold its cleanliness and maintenance.

Infection prevention is of utmost importance to us, and we hold our patients to the same standard by:

  • Maintaining clean hands through regular handwashing and the use of alcohol-based hand gel in the waiting area.
  • Ensuring that hands are washed or alcohol gel is used after using the restroom.
  • Requiring all healthcare staff who treat you to adhere to our ‘bare below the elbows’ policy. Additionally, they should wash their hands before examining you. Please don’t hesitate to ask if they have done so, as we actively promote this practice among all staff, patients, and visitors..

If you have any concerns regarding cleanliness or infection control, please don’t hesitate to inform our Reception staff.

Our clinical team strictly adheres to our Infection Control Policy, guaranteeing the safety of the care we provide and the equipment we utilize.

We implement additional measures to uphold the highest standards:

  • Encourage both staff and patients to address any concerns or report incidents regarding cleanliness and infection control. These issues will be discussed and improvements will be identified to prevent future problems.
