Getting to Know… Dr. Gunita Jolly and the
Cabinet de la Muette clinic
Q: How long have you been a panel physician?
A: I have been a Panel Physician since 2011. Dr. Denise Gunoy joined me in 2017.
Q: How has COVID-19 impacted your clinic?
A: COVID 19 has obviously affected the daily management of the clinic. We have had enough PPE for the staff as well as other protective aids. The staff and patients have been respectful of safety guidelines. Our online manager, Jane Winfield, has aided and organised most visa patients before arrival at the clinic so we have minimised risks during this Pandemic. On arrival at the clinic, our secretaries adhere carefully to safety standards while advising and aiding patients in preparation of their medical exams.
Q: How has your clinic been able to achieve such high COVID vaccination rates?
A: Well we have made sure our website explains the need for Covid vaccination. We add it to all reminder emails sent and it is also on the booking website. So far, so good! Every applicant has understood vaccination requirements before they attend therefore. We don't offer Covid vaccination in our clinic now as it is readily available in Vaccination centres close by.
Q: How have you remained hopeful and resilient?
A: My personality is naturally positive, hopeful, and resilient. Years of experience as a doctor have consolidated these characteristics. It has been even more important during this pandemic to give strength and support to our patients. Working together as an efficient team allows us to give patients confidence that we will do the best for them, especially during these difficult times.
Q: Is there anything else you feel other sites would like to know?
A: Effective teamwork and good communication with our Radiology and Laboratory team have always helped us provide the best service for patients. We speak regularly and try to meet, when possible, to discuss cases and support each other. We encourage other panel sites to communicate with these departments but also to have a forum of feedback for patients, so we can improve services.
