Protecting You, Protecting Us

You’ve probably read a lot about Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) over the last few months and you can be assured that all the PPE we use is of the highest quality and meets the standards set by both the government and NHS.

At reception we have screens to protect you and our staff, as well as floor markings to help you to observe social distancing and keep 2 metres apart.

You’ll need to wear a face mask or face covering in the clinic and on our SpaMedica transport buses. Please put on your mask or scarf before entering the hospital or transport bus – please note this needs to be positioned to cover both your nose and mouth.

Gloves

Masks

Visors

 

PPE is required to provide protection to you for any time we need to provide care within less than 2 metres. Here’s our staff you’ll see in PPE:

  • Our porters – are here to show you through to our clinics and theatre suites, and provide any help or support you need during your time with us.
  • Our healthcare technicians and optometrists – it’s important for you to have a full eye-health check before surgery/treatment and our ophthalmic team will run through some tests with you. Our equipment has been installed with breath guard screens and is cleaned and disinfected in between each patient.
  • Our consultant surgeons and theatre staff – our theatre team will be wearing full PPE and following our stringent scrub routine before each surgery.
  • Our drivers – our SpaMedica bus drivers are wearing visors, which are cleaned between each journey. 

 

Getting Your Diagnosis

Our diagnostic equipment has been fitted with breath/splash guards.

This gives you and our staff further protection when running eye health checks, in addition to the mask you both will be wearing.

 

Getting Your Results

Our optometrists will talk through your test results and your suitability for surgery and ask for consent for surgery to go ahead.

In order to protect both you and our staff we’ll be minimising face-to-face time in our hospitals. You’ll still spend some time with the nurse, clinician and optometrist – it’ll just be limited to your eye and health checks using our diagnostic equipment.
