Screening patients before consultations, treatments and operations

When considering attending the clinic for a consultation. We want you to be well and we are doing everything we can to keep you safe. These questions are designed for the safety of you and the clinic staff.

If you or we think that you have a high chance of currently being infected with coronavirus, you should delay your attendance until a safer time and we may advise this.

Please answer these questions as honestly as you can.

Have you been tested for coronavirus?

Have you had a fever in the past two weeks?

Have you had a cough in the past two weeks?

Have you had any other symptoms suggestive of a viral infection within the last two weeks, such as muscle pain, lethargy, diarrhoea or vomiting, or loss of smell?

Have you been exposed to anyone who has had COVID-19 in the past one month?

Have you travelled outside the UK in the past 14 days and if so, where did you travel?

If you answer YES to any of these questions we will need to speak to you in advance of your attendance to discuss how best to proceed. Please contact us by phone or email.


To maintain patient and staff safety we will need to consider for selected patients the following schedule prior to any treatment or surgery:

1. Only consider patients in low risk groups who have been symptom free for 14 days and have not been in close contact (family and household members) with anyone demonstrating possible symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days.

2. Compulsory use of NHS Contact Tracing App for 7 days pre-treatment.

3. Negative antigen test 48 hours pre-treatment.

4. Strict self-isolation following test (including social distancing from household members).

5. Repeat antigen test on the day of treatment (rapid result if possible or to aid in the event of a post-operative complication).
