Infection Control: Our Policies and Procedures.
We are able to remain open through periods of Lockdown and tighter restrictions.
As you can imagine, our Team have been working hard to provide up-to-date Risk Assessments and Policies to keep all of our patients and staff as safe as possible. We are delighted that Haslemere Chiropractic Clinic is able to remain open throughout periods of lockdown to provide a “medical need”. Medical care is a permitted reason for travel.
There are currently no restrictions in place as to who should attend for chiropractic care. We suggest that all patients consider the level of their symptoms and their own personal risks when deciding whether or not to come. We are mindful that for many people a regular visit helps to manage their condition and prevent acute flare-ups, so we are happy to continue seeing patients for maintenance care. However, if you do not have significant symptoms you may wish to consider delaying your maintenance appointment until the Government’s “Stay at Home” order has been lifted. Please contact us before you come if you would like to discuss any additional measures that could further protect you.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Craniosacral Therapy at present. However, Daniela and Michelle are able to include cranial techniques into a regular treatment slot. We continue to offer video and telephone consultations for those who prefer not to come to the Clinic. Please speak to Reception if you would like to discuss this option.
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 most recent review of the our Risk Assessment and Protocols was performed over the Christmas period 2020. This was in response to concerns about the new variants of COVID-19, and the 3rd National Lockdown, and has helped us to adapt accordingly.
The Clinic has measures in place to be compliant with all Public Health England requirements in terms of maintaining social distancing, PPE and 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 a 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. Patients will be attending at their own risk. We therefore believe that patients should have access to the processes that we have been through. Hopefully this will help anyone who is concerned about coming for treatment to make their own assessment of the risks.
We continue to work hard to regularly assess the risks, and work to mitigate them as far as possible.
Protocols and Policies
We would therefore like to share our Practice Procedures Flow Chart, and Policy Statement. These 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 email@example.com.
