Dr Matley & Partners open for necessary surgery
On 4 May 2020 we reopened all three sets of our rooms at full capacity to see necessary referrals and provide necessary acute and chronic care.
Ours rooms are now open between 08h30 and 17h00 each day and 08h30-12h30 on Saturdays. As always, the partner on call can be accessed after hours through 082 222 1666.
We have instituted stringent safety policies. All patients are expected to arrive wearing their own masks and will be screened prior to entry. We request that all non-emergency patients complete registration formalities online before their appointments. The registration form may be completed online here:
All hospital groups have now introduced mandatory testing for Covid-19 for all acute admissions as well as booked admissions. For booked admissions this must be performed within 72 hrs of admission and for booked procedures patients are also required to self-isolate for 7 days prior to admission. We are happy to arrange these tests.
We continue to perform endoscopy in our rooms, but patients undergoing gastroscopy (with its high risk of aerosol generation) are required to undergo Covid-19 testing prior to the examination. We continue to provide a full diagnostic and therapeutic vascular service.
