STOPPING THE SPREAD - DOING OUR PART
Keeping us all safe in Covid-19 times (Updated 27/01/22)
We are committed to ensuring that we are doing everything we can to reduce the spread of Covid-19. This means that we have changed some of the ways in which we work to include government recommendations , NHS information and professional guidelines.
So, what's changed?
~ We will send you an online consultation form prior to your appointment which will include a covid screening form to state if yourself or someone in your household currently have symptoms of/are in recovery from Covid-19
~ We will be wearing face coverings
~ Upon arrival please wash your hands or use the sanitiser provided
~ Please consider taking a lateral flow test the day of your appointment and do not attend with cold symptoms or fever
Above all, our therapy room will remain the cosy, calm sanctuary that you know and love.
We look forward to seeing you!
Emma Kenny and Associated Therapists
This policy outlines some of the key measures I have taken to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19). Please note the content may be subject to change.
Adhering to guidelines
Throughout the pandemic, I will be following guidelines issued by the government, NHS, other relevant authorities and my professional association, the Federation of Holistic Therapists, regarding safe and hygienic practice and the use of any personal protective equipment (PPE).
COVID-19 Risk Assessment
I have carried out a full risk assessment, in line with guidance from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in order to:
identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus;
think about who could be at risk;
decide how likely it is that someone could be exposed; and to
act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.
Prior to seeing any of my clients, I will be:
monitoring my own health and deferring treatments if I have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.
contacting my clients 24 hours in advance and deferring any treatments if: they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19; If they have been contacted by the NHS Test and Trace Service or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19
asking my clients to call and cancel and defer treatment on the morning of their appointment if they have a temperature or other symptoms of COVID-19.
Enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures
I have introduced enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures between clients, which includes washing and disinfecting any non-porous surfaces and therapy equipment, such as massage couches. Strict personal hygiene measures will also be adhered to, including regular handwashing/ sanitising.
Adapting or restricting treatments
It may be necessary for me to adapt or restrict certain treatments, in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and/or protect my clients’ health and safety. Any clients likely to be impacted will be advised as soon as possible.
Maintaining social distancing
Please note that while many treatments involve close contact, I will be observing social distancing measures wherever possible. This might include, for example, maintaining an appropriate distance during the consultation process, and when arriving and leaving for an appointment.
If a treatment is cancelled or deferred at short notice because my client has COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19, any standard cancellation fees will be waivered. The client will be asked to kindly confirm in writing that their appointment has been cancelled or deferred because they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.
