Returning to Face-to-Face Screenings

Over the past few weeks, MDG have been preparing to resume face-to-face screenings/consultations and we recognise the challenges that this may bring, therefore we have put in place various procedures to ensure everybody’s health and safety.

In order to prepare both our facilities and staff for face-to-face screenings and consultations again, we have conducted an in-depth risk analysis and implemented new protocols and procedures to meet the health and safety challenges we all now face due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These measures will include training for staff on the latest government guidelines, pre-screening customers before booking appointments and ensuring the correct PPE is worn and in place at all times. You can view our risk assessment in full here.

MDG’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Bob Goodall said, “It is increasingly apparent that Covid-19 is a relatively mild to moderate condition in younger people who have no co-existing cardiorespiratory or immunosuppressed morbidity. A risk-managed approach to re-starting face-to-face consultations, which recognises the importance of identifying clients who may be susceptible to complications of the disease, and meets government guidelines on mitigation of cross infection therefore seems reasonable.”

Most of our staff have been working from home throughout this time and now as lockdown begins to ease, we are putting strict measures in place to scale up our on-site operations. We are in the process of contacting new and pipeline applicants to schedule appointments over the next coming weeks and months.

The health and safety of our staff is paramount and we will ensure that all government guidelines surrounding social distancing and appropriate hygiene measures are in place and will be reviewing these on a daily/weekly basis, all under the oversight of our in-house Chief Medical Officer, Dr Bob Goodall.
