COVID-19 Guidelines

Preparation of clinic as per current government COVID-19 guidelines

  • Risk assessment of my clinic and action taken to ensure premises ready for
    Osteopathic treatment
  • Effective infection prevention and control measures in place including personal
    protective equipment

Organising a treatment

  • Phone or video appointments are available if preferred
  • Face to face appointments are available
  • New patient case history taken by phone if possible to reduce face to face contact time
  • Email or text 24 hours prior to appointment to check COVID-19 status and consent for close contact

During treatment

  • On arrival you will be asked to wash your hands or use the hand sanitiser
  • Face masks are available or you are welcome to bring your own
  • I will be wearing PPE as per General Osteopathic Council guidelines

Between treatments

  • There will be 15-30 minute gaps between patient consultations to allow for cleaning
    of the treatment room and to ensure patients do not overlap
  • All working surfaces, door handles, treatment couch and doorbell will be
    washed/disinfected

Exclusions

  • Those with symptoms of or confirmed cases of COVID 19 i.e. those self-isolating
  • Those self isolating for other reasons i.e. quarantine, surgery or other
