Covid 19 Safety
We hope to open for face to face therapy from June 1st as soon as is safely and reasonably allowed. We are following the government guidelines closely as well as those of the professional bodies around us. We continue to offer online therapy using video-conferencing for clients who can and are willing to work this way. We will be risk assessing everyone who wants face to face therapy.
Reopening in a Covid-19 Secure Clinic
Here are some of the precautions we have taken in the clinic
- Patients can be provided with masks on entering the clinic
- We are committed to maintaining a social distance of at least 2 meters in all the therapy rooms and clinic.
- Where 2m social distancing is impossible, for instance in cognitive testing, , PPE will be used
- Rooms are well ventilated
- All soft furnishings will not be in use.
- New room cleaning procedures have been put in place between each client and clinic.
- Hand sanitiser, disinfected wipes and antibacterial hand wash will be available throughout.
- We will be changing our appointments system to minimise contact and waiting times.
- Magazines and non essentials will be removed from the waiting room
- People are welcome to wait on the patio. We are minimising the use of the waiting room. Payments should be made by arrangement with therapists
- No one with active coughs, sneezing, fever or loss of taste / smell should enter the building. We are checking everyone's health status on arrival.
New patients will be able to complete their information patient forms at home.
We are committed to providing a safe environment for clients, practitioners and staff, while also providing the same quality of service as we were previously. If you have any questions about the above, please feel free to ask.
