Safety measures In Clinic

If you do need to attend in person, please be assured that we have taken precautions to protect both yourselves and our members of staff.

While restrictions are in place, LHS staff will control access using an entry phone. You will need to press the intercom button located by our main doors.  A member of the reception team will then check you have an appointment before letting you in.

In order to support social distancing, booked Face to Face clients will only be admitted to clinic at their actual appointment time.  Anyone who arrives late for their appointment will be asked to leave and re-schedule.

Protective screens have been put in place at Reception and hand sanitiser distributors are placed throughout the clinic.

Face Coverings

In line with Government guidelines for NHS settings, all members of staff and the public will be required to wear face coverings in the clinic. Please bring a face covering with you when you come for your appointment and put it on before entering. LSH will provide you with a mask if needed.

Please see this short video from the WHO on how to use a face covering correctly. If it is not possible to wash your hands, hand sanitiser should be used.

PPE

Our clinical staff will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when providing client care which prevents them maintaining social distancing (i.e. for physical examinations, blood tests and injections). This PPE will consist of face masks, gloves, aprons and goggles.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. By respecting these safety measures, we will also be respecting and protecting each other. 

 

If you have not been asked to attend a face to face appointment, please see our information pages on Telephone Consultations, STI Testing and Contraception for more information.
