- Our staff will wear PPE with daily temperature checks and regular handwashing.
- Closed door policy at outset to limit number of people in the practice. Patients will be asked to make an appointment.

- Perspex breath shields in the reception area and on equipment in the consulting room
- Social distancing measures will be in place
- Staff will assist with frame selection to minimise contact in the practice and all frames will be cleaned before placing on display.
- Contactless payment will be requested where possible. Payment station will be cleaned after each use.
In the first instance, we will be prioritising emergency and essential care patients. If you have noticed any change in your vision or have any concerns about your eye health, please contact us on by phone on 02072531309,email or website.
