  5. We have a programme to disinfect areas and equipment in the practice after your visit, to make it safe and ready for the next patient.
  6. We ask that you pay by card where possible.
  7. If at any time prior to your appointment, you or anyone you may have been in contact with experiences COVID-19 symptoms, we ask you to re-schedule.

Please remember to avoid touching your face as this can introduce the COVID virus into your body.

On a brighter note, please protect your vision with the correct sunglasses. Many people underestimate the damage that sunlight causes to the health of your eyes. Ensure that you have the correct genuine kite marked sunglasses that will protect eyes from damaging UV radiation.

If you drive with spectacles, we suggest that you have a pair of sunglasses made with your prescription.
