We have put togther a few FAQs we believe will answer some of your questions about how we are now operating under the guidelines.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
As of 8th August, you are required to wear face covering in enclosed spaces, which includes at our clinic. There are medical exemptions which can be found on the government website.
We do not require you to wear a face covering when you are prone ( lying face down) on the couch as we have a covering in place for this but we would like you to wear a face covering when entering the treatment room, and all work when lying on your side and supine (lying face up).
Please advise us in advance if you are exempt from wearing a mask.
Our therapists will be wearing a mask & visors.
Please bring your own face covering. If you forget, we can provide one for a surcharge of £1.
We have done a detailed risk assessment and here is a summary of those implemented procedures:-
We cannot treat anyone who is shielding or considered extremely vunerable at this time. We can offer virtual appointments if required.
If you are shielding someone and happy to still come in, we can offer you the first appointment of the day if preferred.
Everyone is required to fill in a COVID-19 pre-screening form which is to be completed before attending which MUST be filled out.
There is a 30-minute gap between each appointment to deep clean the room.
All consultations will be done virtually and before your appointment.
Each appointment is to arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before time and leave promptly. Do not enter before then.
