Back to business
I’ve been notified by my Association the IRSM, I am able to resume work on Thursday 3rd December and operate under the parameters I was working under before lockdown2. We are still in the midst of a pandemic so measures have not been eased off but we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully by the spring and certainly summer of next year, I might be able to dispense with the visor!
For your information, you are now welcome to book in from Friday 4th December (the 3rd and 8th are fully booked) to Wednesday 23rd December. All the evening slots are gone up, to and including the 18th December but I have 21st-23rd, dates which have just been opened up.
As a reminder, slots are now fixed at 09:30am, 11:30am, 2:00pm, 4:00pm and 6:00pm, Tuesday to Friday. However, in December, I will also be working on Mondays. I look forward to working with those of you who book in and I hope you are coping well with lockdown2 and the notification of our respective Tiers. Roll on 2021!!
Please see below, the comprehensive Covid-19 measures which I adhere to for your safety.
Having re-opened on 15th July 2020, adhering to guidelines issued by my Association, the Institute for Soft Tissue Therapists, to ensure my Practice is Covid-19 compliant as outlined in the measures below, we now enter a different phase during this month-long lockdown in the UK.
During the period 5th November 2020 to 2nd December 2020, I will be working selectively under Special Measures outlined by my Association, according to guidelines and mandates emanating from the Government during this pandemic, in a bid to bring the Ro rate down. Please see the page ‘Covid-19. Special measures during #lockdown2 for more information.
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.
Apologies this is all a bit long winded, but necessary, as we ease back to some sort of normality. I look forward to seeing you soon!
