All our hospitals are classified as ‘covid-secure’ hospitals; this means we have full control over who visits the hospitals (by appointment and pre-screening only) and unlike other hospitals we don’t have any COVID-19 patients, or other unwell patients in our buildings at any time.
There’s no risk of cross-infection or contamination from other specialities and we have complete control over everyone who enters and leaves our premises.
All our patients are asked to self-isolate for ten days before surgery, to reduce the risk of contamination in our surgical theatres; keeping our surgeons and staff protected.
The first round of COVID vaccinations has been rolled out to all SpaMedica staff across all our hospitals, to help protect our patients and staff.
This also means that we don’t treat any patients with COVID-19, or patients with suspected COVID-19 – that’s why we’ll do a temperature check when you arrive at the hospital, as well as check with you for other symptoms. This also applies to our staff, who are routinely screened and checked for symptoms.
You (and all our patients) will receive a COVID-19 screening call from one of our nurses 24-48 hours before you attend the hospital to check your current health.
We’ll run through some information and medical checks with you on this call – this helps reduce the time spent in hospital at your appointment.
