On the day of the appointment remember
- You must come wearing a mask. Gloves are optional.
- Arrive at the agreed time. This helps us to avoid unnecessary waiting time and accumulation of patients. If you arrive at the clinic before the scheduled time, depending on the capacity, you may have to wait outside our facilities.
- If you are late, we may not be able to see you the same day and we will schedule the visit later.
- Avoid moving around the clinic. Stay in the designated waiting room until you are called.
In relation to the situation caused by the coronavirus outbreak, Barraquer has set out guidelines to prevent and minimise the risk of contagion during the visit.
Safety has always been a priority at Barraquer. That is why we have devoted the last few weeks to making our Centre a safe space where we can now have you again and serve you with safety fully guaranteed. Thanks to the commitment to digitisation, the promotion of remote working, the adaptation of spaces and the implementation of a strict health protocol, we are in a position to guarantee your safety and that of all the people who attend to you.
