Coronavirus and Lockdown 

 

Coronavirus - Keeping you safe at the practice

With the easing of the lockdown restrictions, we are now able to unlock our front door and let our clients and friends back into our building.  However, we all know that there are still significant risks and dangers around coronavirus and as we make these changes, we need to be extremely cautious.

It is our intention to make our waiting area and consulting rooms as safe for everyone as they can possibly be.  We will, of course, be cleaning and disinfecting all areas of the practice regularly and thoroughly.  All our staff are following strict hygene rules at all times.  In addition, for at least the time being, you will notice some other changes.

Front door - Our front door is unlocked but we need to keep control of the number of people in our building at any one time.  We now have a receptionist sitting in the lobby and if necessary, you may be asked to wait outside until it is safe to let you into the building.

One visitor at a time - We ask that wherever possible, only one person accompanies their pet into the building.  At times this may not be possible, we know but the fewer people that we have in the building at any one time, the safer it will be.

Hand sanitising - There is a hand sanitising station in the entrance lobby and we ask that everyone uses this on enetering and leaving the building.  Our alcohol free sanitiser starts working within 15 seconds of applying it and its effects last for at least two hours.

Masks - All our staff will be wearing masks at all times and we ask that while in the building, you wear one too.  If you do not have your own mask then we can provide you with one.  If you would rather not wear a mask then we will politely ask you to wait outside and the vet will consult with you in the car park.

All of us at the pactice are looking forward to welcoming you all back into the building and having a little more face to face time (even if it is with masks).  The most important thing is to keep us all safe though and so we would ask that you please bear with us over the next few weeks as we all adjust to this new way of working.

Thank you all so much for your patience and support and above all else, keep staying safe.
