For patient and practitioner safety reopening the centre in June 2020 required some significant adaptations to the way in which we ran the clinic and the way in which we practise. Many of those changes will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
We prefer it if appointments are made by telephone.
The practitioner undertakes to clean all relevant surfaces you may come in contact with before and after your appointment. There may not be any linen on the treatment table but couch roll and hospital grade plastic covered pillows are in use. For your own personal comfort feel free to bring your own blanket or towel. Some practitioners will use towels/linen but these will be single use only.
The practitioner will regularly and thoroughly wash their hands. They will use relevant PPE as requested. They will monitor their own health and if necessary check their own temperature. If in any doubt as to their fitness to practise they will cancel/postpone any appointments you might have made with them. We will keep you notified of any potential covid risk giving you the opportunity to decide whether you wish to attend.
In return we ask that you also respect the current health care directives.
- DO NOT attend if you feel unwell or if you suspect you may have Covid-19 or you may have come in contact with someone who has Covid-19.
Please wash/sanitise your hands when you enter the building, soap/washing facilities and hand sanitiser are available for your use. Likewise current advice states that face masks may be helpful in reducing spread via droplet infection, we have disposable masks available or you may wish to bring your own.
Please feel free to ask us questions – you will be helping us to get this right. If in doubt please don’t come in to see us until you are ready.
