In reality, I expect to be able to offer a treatment from w/c 13th July 2020 from my studio clinic in St Andrews, Bristol (BS6 5AR) but I will have to confirm this nearer the time as things do change quite rapidly.
The current advice is that the risk of transmission of the Coronavirus is small when receiving osteopathy, rehabilitation physiotherapy such as physiotherapy and Sports Therapy PROVIDED ALL patients as practitioners act upon the relevant advice. Both patients and practitioners have a role to play in keeping everybody safe.
If you are planning to visit a Breeze Sports Therapy clinic, please read and consider the following new protocols that will be in place
EXTRA HEALTH & HYGIENE MEASURES IN PLACE
In accordance with Government guidelines and my professional governing body advice, all unnecessary items from the clinic floor and table surfaces have been removed so that more efficient cleaning can occur, which is also being undertaken on a more frequent basis.
Sanitisers are placed in the treatment room, so that they can be used by patients and staff frequently
Appointments will be 30-45mins in duration
Your therapist will...
Call or text you to check that you are in good health before you arrive for treatment.
Wash their hands or use hand sanitiser before treatment.
Follow guidelines on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Disinfect non-porous materials, e.g. massage couch and equipment.
Wash porous materials e.g. pillowcases, sheets and towels after every use.
Replace couch roll and other disposable materials.
Ventilate the treatment room and reception area.
Change their tunic/top/apron if needed.
