Walker and Campbell Optometrists

Following the publication of the latest government advice, health and care settings in England must continue to maintain appropriate infection prevention and control (IPC) measures. The Chief Medical and Chief Scientific advisers have also stated that the pandemic is not over and they expect an extremely high prevalence of COVID infections until at least the end of August.

This means that on 19th July we will continue to:

  • follow current Infection Prevention and Control guidance, including PPE
  • ensure social distancing remains in place
  • sanitise frames
  • maintain good ventilation throughout the practice
  • ensure that all staff and patients wear face masks. Our practice is a healthcare setting and face covering use is recommended by the NHS, the College of Optometrists, General Optical Council and Association of Optometrists. This is for the benefit of all patients and staff due to the prolonged close proximity that is required. If a person forgets their face covering, we will supply one for them to wear.

Thank you for your understanding.
