A safe return for education and exams at the NRC

Although most of the team at the NRC is still furloughed, operations manager Mat Stringer has been working hard behind the scenes to answer queries and prepare the venue for a safe return.

The NRC user journey has been totally reviewed to allow for hygiene and social distancing, taking into account staff, students and external users.

At your next visit to the NRC you will find floor markers and signage throughout, hand sanitising stations, new socially distanced room layouts and closed lid wastage.

Mat says,

The venue is ready for exams and education to take place. For example, we have a touchless sanitiser station from Bondeye Optical, and that’s just one of the adaptations we are making.

In the clinical areas, visitors to the NRC will find slit lamp breath shields, full face shields and PPE supplied by Alcon and Birchgrove. The NRC reception has a new contactless signing-in procedure and protective screen. There are also mobile protective shields/screens for examiners, students and external users should they be needed.
