Selworthy and Covid 19

Thank you to all our lovely clients that have been so patient regarding coming into the building and having your consultations in the carpark Everything we have done was in an effort to keep both our team and you safe. We recently reviewed all our protocols with the team and as a result the following changes will come into effect on Monday 21st March
1. Owners will have access to the practice with some restrictions.
2. Appointments will return to 15 mins as the vet/nurse will no longer have to collect/return your pet from/to you in the car park.
3. We will continue to wear masks in the practice and request that you do too.
4. if you have an exemption from wearing a mask or refuse to, we will see you outside the practice as we are doing currently.
5. Only 1 client per pet will be allowed in the practice and consulting room at a time. Exemptions from this rule are in the event of an end of life procedure or if small children are accompanying you.
6. If it is an end of life procedure where you are exempt or unwilling to wear a mask we will do the procedure in one of the following locations, your car or the stables. at the rear of the practice.
7. We will recommence home visits for end of life procedures.
8. The waiting room will be marked up into sections where each consult room will have its own area.
9. We would respectfully request that you only seek entry to the practice a minute or two before your appointment time, if you arrive early you will be asked to wait in your car until your appointment time - this is to avoid congestion in the waiting room.
10 we will review again after a few weeks to see if we need to change our protocols further
11. Payment is still expected at the time of treatment or collection of medications
12. Please give us 48 hours notice of repeat prescriptions
