Our Practice has introduced the following features to prepare for COVID-19:
VIDEO CONSULTATION- this telemedicine feature will help tremendously in reducing the risk of coming into contact with the Coronavirus. The Health Professions Council of South Africa has recommended it for the safety of patients and medical staff and most advanced countries have switched to telemedicine consults during the crisis.
No waiting room - Patients will wait in their cars after checking-in at the reception. This will prevent the chance of spread of illness in the waiting room
Rooms stripped of linen and unnecessary objects so that surfaces can be regularly wiped-down with disinfectant.
