covid safety charter

PRE-SCREENING: I will contact you 24 hours before your appointment with a pre-screening form to ensure that you are not suffering with or likely to develop Covid-19. I will also use this opportunity to talk through your symptoms and progress to reduce contact time during your appointment.

ARRIVAL ETIQUETTE: To limit the number of people in the practice, please ensure you don’t turn up too early or be late. Please come alone, unless necessary, and only bring essential belongings. Please also make sure you have used the bathroom before you arrive as there won’t be any facilities you can use at my clinic.

PPE: I will wear appropriate personal protective equipment throughout the treatment which will include a mask and scrubs. You will be given a mask to wear on arrival. Alternatively, you may wish to bring your own face covering.

SOCIAL DISTANCING: As it will not be possible to maintain 2m distance whilst treating I will be taking extra precautions in addition to PPE to ensure our safety. This includes:

  • Keeping diagnosis time to a minimum
  • Keeping the room ventilated
  • Leaving the room whilst you are resting on the couch
  • No needling of acupuncture points on the face or head

MAINTAIN ESSENTIAL HYGIENE: I will have a sink in the treatment room and you can wash your hands with hot soap and water. Alternatively you can also use anti-bacterial gel provided.

MORE FREQUENT CLEANING: I will be performing deeper, thorough and more frequent cleans. These are scheduled throughout the day to fit around appointments.
