Covid-19 Hygiene and safety policy 

Please be assured the risks to your personal health are taken very seriously at Body for Life Osteopathy. All reasonable precautions have been taken to ensure your safety whilst you are in the clinic and are detailed below.

 

Daily hygiene at the clinic

  • To reduce surface contact, where possible, internal doors will be left open to ease your route through the building

  • The clinic room is sanitised at the beginning and end of the day and between every patient. This includes cleaning of the plinth, chairs, desk, payment machine and computer

  • All pillow-cases, towels or blankets used during treatment are changed between patients

 

Personal protective equipment

 

  • I will be wearing a medical-grade fluid resistant face mask during your consultation. If you are a high-risk patient, gloves may also be worn, however good handwashing is thought to be sufficiently effective if all other hygiene procedures are followed.

  • You will also be given a disposable mask to wear which you will need to fit over your mouth and nose during your consultation. You will be asked to take this with you when you leave the clinic and dispose of it safely (i.e. double-wrapped before being placed in a refuse bin)

  • The masks are used to significantly reduce the risk of me as a vector of transmission between patients. I have vulnerable patients attending the clinic on a daily basis and therefore I ask that all patients to respect and comply with mask-wearing in order to reduced the risk to others

  • I will, as always, be washing my hands before and after each treatment and at other intervals throughout the day

 

Appointment times

  • Patients are asked to arrive on time for appointments to reduce contact with other patients between appointments.
