The clinic is mostly open as usual now, however for patients who are in the vulnerable & shielding groups (those 70 years and older and those with underlying health conditions) will need a pre - appointment screening phone call to assess patient details and suitability for treatment.
If you are in or likely to be in direct contact with those in the vulnerable and shielding groups, please inform the practitioner in advance so a risk assessment can be made.
Practitioners will be wearing PPE and will provide face masks to clients if required. All couch covers, towels and contact items will be single use, and equipment will be cleaned and sterilized after each appointment. Hand sanitizer is provided.
The current guidance for allied health professionals is that treatment is safe provided the necessary checks and protocols are in place.
