Infection Control: Our Policies and Procedures.
Reopen for everyone from 15 June
Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic reopened for urgent cases only on 11 May. Following further guidance from the British Chiropractic Association, and relaxing of the Government’s lock down measures, we are now also able to offer appointments routine and maintenance appointments.
We take the safety of our patients and staff very seriously. In order to welcome patients to the Clinic, we are constantly reviewing and developing our Risk Assessments and Protocols.
The decision to reopen was taken in the knowledge that all visitors to Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic, both patients and staff, can be afforded a reasonable level of safety. The Clinic has measures in place to be compliant with all Public Health England requirements in terms of maintaining social distancing, PPE and appropriate sanitisation procedures. We have considered every aspect of our operations in detail to optimise the measures in place.
Despite the precautions that we have taken, there remains an inherent risk of human-to-human transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Whilst working hard to manage and minimise risks, Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic cannot guarantee that there is no risk as a result of attending the clinic and/or receiving treatment. Patients will be attending at their own risk. We therefore believe that patients are entitled to have access to all the processes that we have been through to get to this stage in order that they can make their own assessment of the risks.
Our Receptionists continue to triage patients wishing to book an appointment to ensure that we are aware if anyone falls into a higher risk or vulnerable/shielding group. This allows us to assess the risks, and work to mitigate them as far as possible.
Protocols and Policies
We would therefore like to share our Practice Procedures Chart, and Policy documents, which have been based on a detailed Risk Assessment. We hope that this provides all of the information that you require to make an informed decision about whether you wish to attend the Clinic.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss our Policies further. You can call Reception on 01428 642778, or email Michelle Carrington (Clinic Owner) on firstname.lastname@example.org.
