If your doctor decides that you need further examination or a procedure you may be asked to come to RCP. If this is required, we will take every precaution to avoid exposing you to infection. For example, we will ask you to wait in your car rather than the waiting room, and we may consult with you in the carpark. There won’t be any magazines or toys around. Everyone must wear a mask and we ask you to bring your own (we have only a limited supply of these). If you have a mask exemption, please telephone reception for further instructions.
