Coronavirus (COVID – 19) Policy
My priority is to keep you as safe as possible, I have received a Certificate of Achievement in Covid – 19 Certification 2020, the Health and Safety & Hygiene – Returning to work Covid -19 course and also Barbicide Covid-19 Certification.
A full Covid- 19 risk
assessment of my premises has been conducted and all procedures are in place, this is reviewed regularly.
Please note appointment times are still no longer than one hour.
If you are shielding I am unable to provide any treatments at this time. If you are extremely clinically vulnerable please contact your doctor explaining which treatments you would like to check if should go ahead. Please see the following link for list of extremely clinically vulnerable.
Check I am in good health before you arrive for your treatment including taking my temperature, if myself or anyone in my house or bubble has symptoms of Covid-19 I will self isolate immediately and cancel your appointment.
You will be greeted warmly but no personal contact or handshakes.
Wash my hands in accordance with public health England recommendations before and after treatment.
Follow the government & FHT guidelines on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Sanitise non-porous materials, e.g. massage couch and equipment.
Wash porous materials e.g. towels at 60 C temperature between each client.
Replace couch roll and other disposable materials between clients.
Ventilate the treatment room.
Items such as cushions, magazines, fluffy socks and electric blanket have been removed from the treatment room.
Wear durable, disposable gloves when sanitising the treatment room, which will be done between each client from my checklist. I will be allowing at least 30 minutes between clients for cleaning and ventilation.
Maintain social distancing before and after the treatment.
I will take your temperature on arrival with a digital thermometer.
Send you a COVID-19 form sent via Jot form two days before your treatment, it is essential that this form is completed by the evening before your appointment.
At your appointment:
Face masks are no longer mandatory from 19th July but guidance recommends that masks should still be worn in enclosed spaces. I will be wearing a mask for the duration of your appointment.
Please inform me when booking your appointment if you have been hospitalised due to Covid -19 - please seek GP consent before treatment takes place.
Please bring minimal belongings, you will be given a plastic box to put your things in, this box is sanitized between each client.
Please come alone for your treatment, only one client will be allowed in the treatment room at this time.
Please arrive at the agreed time, rather than early and park on the drive rather than the road, there maybe one or two cars on there but plenty of room to park behind them.
Please stick to appointment timing as time is needed between clients for sanitising and extra ventilation.
Please use your own toilet facilities before setting off for your appointment to reduce the likelihood of needing to use the bathroom in the house, but I do appreciate that some may need to use the toilet.
Use the hand sanitizer provided upon arrival.
Please use the tissues provided to cough or sneeze into.
Please pay by card or have the exact amount of cash.
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and mine. I will continue to take advice from the government, NHS and FHT regarding safe practice and will amend as necessary. Thank you for your support
