Staff and patient safety during the coronavirus pandemic
Safety measures are in place on board the mobile unit to reduce the risk of COVID-19. Before the appointment or on arrival you may be asked:
- Do you have a new cough?
- Do you have a raised temperature (this may be checked on arrival at your appointment)?
- Have you had loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell?
If you are unsure or do not want to attend because of concerns about coronavirus, please contact your lung health check provider to discuss this.
We are thoroughly cleaning the equipment and changing areas between participants and we are making sure that our waiting rooms have space to allow for social distancing.
When you arrive at the appointment you will be met by staff who may be wearing personal protection equipment (PPE). Our staff will give you a face mask to wear, if you do not have one with you.
