Your health and safety are my priority and I want to make sure you all feel safe and can plan your treatments at home or in the clnic, with the upmost confidence. I am committed to the highest levels of patient care and also transparency in how I operate and I will continue to keep you informed.
It is important to me that we will find our way together to do what we feel is correct with the information we have at the time and in line with the guidance from my professional body (CSP), to keep us all safe and well. Here are some important changes:
I will try to minimise the use of superfluous or unneccessary equipment.
Towels and couch covers will not be used (patient can provide them during home visits as well as pillow with fresh washed pillow cases).
Pillow cases at the clinic will be changed in between sessions.
Disposable cover / couch roll will be used as usual on the therapy bed and pillows.
I will be wearing the following PPE at your appointment, in compliance with current government guidelines including:
- Non-latex gloves (single use)
- Apron (single use)
- IIR facemask (sessional use)
- Eye protection visor
Uniform reserved only for while in clinic and single home visit and will not be worn to travel.Patients will need to hand wash before each sesssion and wear PPE (gloves, Type II masks) which will be provided upon arrival. You will be requested to remove your own PPE then bag it and sanitise your hands.
