COVID-19 screening and triaging - Visitors and medical staff are required to have their body temperature checked. We recommend they reschedule appointments for those with upper respiratory tract infection symptoms or a fever. Patients are encouraged to use the “leave home safe" app to obtain a blue or amber code to enter the clinic. If patients don't have a leave home safe app, he/she will need to fill in a health declaration form while entering our premises.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we commit to providing you with a safe, reliable, and comfortable environment to receive medical care. To further enhance environmental hygiene, we have recently installed a medical-grade silver Ion antiviral air purifier at our Central clinic. The air purifier is proven to eliminate more than 99.9% of Covid-19 virus within 15 mins, suppress virus activity and infectivity, prevent viruses from attaching and invading cells, etc.
Besides the air-purifying device, our clinic has previously also adopted a series of conventional preventive measures against Covid-19: all doctors and frontline staff are fully vaccinated, ITP TiO2/ NANO Coating that provides anti-bacteria/virus protection, regular cleaning in the clinic, etc. With a safe and comfortable environment, we hope to ease patients' worry when planning to see a doctor in person!
