Monday 12th April, 2021
After the Government annoucement on 22nd February, 2021, I’m hopeful I will be able to resume trading on Monday 12th April, 2021.
My Association are picking over the terms and conditions but certainly I will be taking bookings for those of you who wish to book in in advance of this date, subject to the hopefully remote possibility of change, given the reduction in the Ro rate.
I very much look forward to seeing you all again and getting back to treating.
I’ve been using the intervening time to upgrade the treatment room, to enhance your safety; installing an air conditioning unit which will not only ensure an ambient temperature year-round but also, a proportion of the air is constantly being replaced from outside and either being heated or cooled down. This, in addition to ventilating the room and the Covid sanitisation procedures I adhere to, helps to ensure a Covid-19 free zone.
Tier 4, with effect from 23rd December, 2020
As of 23rd December 2020, I have been notified by my Association the IRSM, I am currently unable to work, under Special Measures or otherwise.
After recent Government announcements, Berkshire unsuprisingly remains in Tier 4, so all of the appointments in the diary from 5th January 2021, when I’d intended and hoped to resume work are cancelled and I will be in touch, accordingly.
Initially I will be letting those clients know who are booked in the diary between 5th -8th January 2021 today, Thursday 31st December and from Monday 4th January, I will contact those of you who are in the diary from 11th January 2021, to ensure you too are aware of the situation.
Covid-19 protocol varies according to the Tier we are placed in. The information below is a guide to Tier 1. Additional measures are imposed in Tier 2 and Tier 3 and in Tier 4 I am locked down, along with many other businesses.
Please see below, the comprehensive Covid-19 measures which I adhere to for your safety. Additional PPE measures may be brought in, e.g. as and when we move back down to Tier 3, including the use of single-use gloves and disposable aprons.
Your health and safety is my number one priority, so please be assured I have undertaken all the necessary risk assessments provided by the Government and my Association. This is in addition to the high standards of cleanliness I routinely adhere to.
PPE and Hygiene
I have decided to absorb the additional costs I’ve had to incur to be able to operate at this time, meaning there will not be a price increase for your treatment.
When you come for your treatment, please wear a mask. If you don’t have one available I can provide one for you. No mask, no treatment.
I will be wearing a face visor, and once you enter the property, I will also be wearing a mask. This is both for your protection and mine.
Upon your arrival and departure, the application of hand sanitiser (provided) will be required and I will ensure that all necessary doors are opened for you.
I will be running a reduced diary to allow time after each appointment to sanitise the treatment room and surrounding areas. Please aim to arrive on time for your appointment, and not too early.
Track and Trace
If you, or any member of your family, are displaying symptoms of Covid-19, have been contacted by Track and Trace or been on holiday abroad to a country not on the travel corridor list or been in contact with a known Covid-19 sufferer in the last 14 days , please do not book until you’ve completed the requisite isolation period. If you book an appointment and later develop symptoms, please call to reschedule, even if it’s at short notice.
Prior to booking your first post lockdown appointment, I need to go through some Covid-19 screening questions under guidance from my Association. This will cover how data is handled for Track and Trace, as well as your permission for face-to-face treatment. When you arrive for your appointment, before you enter I will again ask if you are symptom free and upon entry, ask you to verify your screening answers and sign, in order to consent to face-to-face treatment and GDPR.
If you haven’t been for a treatment before, I will send you a case history form for completion by return. I’m taking this approach rather than completing the case history at your first appointment, due to Covid-19.
Although I will still be accepting cash, payment by card or bank transfer or Paypal is preferable at this time.
