COVID-19 INFORMATION

'I keep you safe / You keep me safe'

Being responsible & staying as safe as possible is important.

The information given below is about what I'm doing to ensure your safety & what is expected of you as a client of mine. It's in accordance with guidelines from trusted sources like: NHS, government, professional governing bodies & my insurance company. As guidelines change I will review & amend it.

WHAT I'M DOING:

- I will wear the appropriate officially stipulated PPE

- I will wash my hands, forearms & elbows before & after treatments

- I will ventilate & clean the therapy room & all common areas before & after every appointment

- I will thoroughly wash all laundry used at every appointment

- I will wear a clean uniform for every client

- For the time being, new client consultations will be done via telephone & online forms (this is to limit face to face contact time until the pandemic situation settles down)

- Home visits will unfortunately not be offered until the pandemic situation settles down

- I will take my temperature everyday

- I will not see clients if I have any symptoms

- If I develop symptoms I will get tested & self isolate as required

- I will inform you if I develop symptoms & have seen you within the past 14 days

- To complete & return to me any initial or precautionary Coronavirus  or consultation forms that I email you prior to an appointment, in order to limit face to face time together

- To remove your shoes upon entering a clinic location (for those unable to do so disposable shoe covering will be avail')

- To bring your own drinking water

- At any clinic location, not to touch door handles, light switches etc as much as possible but rather allow me to do so

- To be aware that pre, during & post treatment conversation is to be kept as minimal / efficient as possible

- To sanitise your hands upon arrival (if you then touch personal items or your mask to re-sanitise your hands)

Thank you for taking the time to read this & your cooperation.

Whilst perhaps all this may seem like a bit of an inconvenience, due to the infectious nature

of the virus things need to operate a little differently for the time being.

So until circumstances change let's all do the best we can to protect each other.

Stay safe & healthy wishes to you all!
