COVID -19 reopening

  • In order to reopen and practice safety during this Covid_19 pandemic I have had to make some changes to the way I operate.

The first is to assure you that all precautions in accordance with Government/PHE /GOsC/Insurers guidelines are being implemented.
The practice will operate differently:

  • You will receive a call on the morning of your treatment (between 9-10am)to check that you are not showing symptoms of Covid-19 (cough/temperature/loss of smell);that you are not in a vulnerable category or live with someone in this category; that you have not been in contact with a person with symptoms within the last 14 days; that you have not been advised to isolate; that you don't have other respiratory symptoms
  • You MUST be available for this call or your appointment may be cancelled
  • This for the safety of us all
  • Please arrive on time and not early as there will be no waiting facilities
  • Please wait outside until I call you in
  • Please do not come from work or the shops. Ideally come from home having changed into clean clothes
  • Wear the least amount for the weather conditions and leave coats, umbrellas, bags at home. Please come alone if possible unless a chaperone required, and absolutely NO children
  • Wash hands on entry and use handgel . Then please put on the 11R mask provided

I will be disinfecting all surfaces after each patient including couch, chairs, door handles and the floors will be cleaned after each session. Due to the requirements that the room be ventilated between each patient appointments will be an hour apart.
There are strict PPE requirements which will involve me wearing scrubs that can be changed after each patient, masks to be worn by both you and me , and gloves may be worn by me. This must also involve frequent handwashing (disposable towels will be available in the cloakroom) and use of sanitiser.

++++The measures I have put in place will reduce the risk of Coronavirus transmission at the practice but will not eliminate it completely. There will always be a risk attending premises where other people have been, so please think carefully about your own risk assessment and let me know as soon as possible if you change your mind once booked.++++


Payment will ideally be contactless or card, although if cash correct money will need to be given.The fee is either £55 for NP or £40 for follow-up. Please inform me if you or anyone in your household develops symptoms within a few days of attendance

THIS WAY WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO KEEP US ALL SAFE xx
