FLU CLINICS 2020
What the expect when you attend your appointment...
In order to adhere to strict social distancing guidelines and ensure the safety of both staff and patients we kindly ask that patients familiarise themselves with the below coronavirus signs and symptoms poster. If you have any of the below symptoms prior to your appointment we kindly ask that you do not attend the surgery.
When attending the surgery for your appointment please could we encourage all patients to wear a mask or face covering.
Please could we also ask that you attend on time for your appointment and not too early.
Upon arrival, the internal door to the practice will be locked. At the porch entrance you will be met by a member of the team who will check you in for your appointment. You will then be asked to sanitise your hands from the gel dispenser. Following this you will be shown to a dedicated seat within the waiting area. Please do not sit on any seats marked with a taped cross - these seats are not to be used in order to adhere to social distancing. We will then ask you to prepare your arm so that it is exposed prior to your appointment. We kindly ask that you do not place any items of clothing on the marked chairs beside you. It would therefore be helpful if you attend the practice with the minimum number of clothing layers possible.
You will then be called down to one of the clinical rooms via the TV screen in the waiting room. There a member of our team will be able to administer your flu jab.
Once you have had your flu jab you will be escorted out of the building via the back side door in order to adhere to a one way system.
Please also note there will be no access to toilet facilities during the flu clinics.
We kindly ask that you bare with us at this time and work with us to provide the most safe means of providing patient care.
