Please keep safe.
We have just purchased an Aerosol Capture System to help protect ourselves and our patients during these uncertain times.
This new machine works like a giant vacuum or extractor fan that has a specially designed filter inside that catches viruses and aerosols to stop them from spreading around the room. This keeps you and us safer from any virus.
Once you are seated in the chair we will pass the funnel to you, make it comfortable and ask you to lightly hold it with 1 hand.
