Core Body Clinic, Ltd.  Infection Control Policy: COVID-19 Updated June 18th 2020


It comes as no surprise that our current recommendation is that you do not attend or book in for physiotherapy treatment if you are suffering with a cold or flu symptoms until you are sure that you are no longer able to transmit your virus and you are able to confirm you do not have the COVID-19.  In the pre-COVID19 era, patients would do just that, so we are asking patients to continue to practice the same infection control procedures. In the current circumstances, we ask you to telephone the clinic if you have any doubts as to whether you should attend a scheduled appointment.  If this is on the morning of the appointment, then we have no objection and no fee will apply for last minute cancellations.  Your health and safety are our priority.  We appreciate that most people will not have the virus and will be suffering from a cold or flu like virus.  However, we are encouraging patients to pay due diligence to their situation prior to making plans and adhere to the directions of the DOH.

Core Body Clinic adheres to high standards of hygiene.:

 

  • All patients are screened before booking via phone, email and consent form.
  • All patients must sign a consent form declaring they are not ill
  • All patients wear a mask (if not in posession then the clinic can provide a mask for £1)
  • Patients may NOT enter unless invited and are instructed to remain outside the clinic, unless raining
  • You must follow the physiotherapist into the room
  • You must wash hands in alcohol
  • You will be temperature tested and if high you will not be treated
  • Other than a coat or bag you may not bring in other items
  • Bags and coats will be placed on the floor or designated area
  • The therapist will have ultimate direction of your activities
  • You will sit on a plinth that is covered with towel
