Assistance Dogs

The Practice welcomes assistance dogs.

The Practice will manage the presence of assistance dogs without recourse to the owner and will pay particular attention to infection control and housekeeping whilst dogs are on the premises.

Physical contact with a dog by clinical staff will be resisted during consultations or examinations, and whilst a general surgery is in progress.

Hand washing or alcohol hand gel will be used by staff after any physical contact with a dog, whether during a consultation or not.Care will be taken by clinical staff to identify other patients in the Surgery list for that session who have been identified as potentially adverse clinically to the presence of dogs. This will include patients who are:

  • allergic to dogs
  • immunosuppressant
  • phobic to dogs

or have another medical reason. Consideration will be given to allowing them to wait, or be seen, in an alternative room.
