Patients from abroad

Please note the current entry requirements regarding the coronavirus
If you specifically require a second Covid test after entry, this cannot be carried out in the clinic. In such cases, inpatient admission is only possible after a second negative test result.

State of health

Please only attend your consultancy or surgery appointment if you appear and feel generally well. If you experience flu-like symptoms before your appointment, please call your GP.

The result of the consultation will determine whether your procedure can go ahead as planned or if it needs to be postponed. The Federal Office of Public Health’s coronavirus check will also give you information on what to do next and whether you should take a test for COVID-19.

If your procedure needs to be postponed, you or your GP should contact our appointment scheduling team immediately.

Our visiting hours are as follows:

Mask requirement and hand hygiene

Masks must be worn by everyone above the age of six. Please note that external certificates of exemption from mask-wearing are not valid at Schulthess Klinik (except in highly urgent cases, which will need to be clarified beforehand by the doctor providing treatment). If you are exempt from wearing a mask, you will, however, be required to wear a face shield. If you do not have your own face shield, you can obtain one from reception.
