Pro Fusion Therapy
Hello from us all at Pro Fusion Therapy, we hope you are well?
It's been an interesting time!
Carolyn Smyth NIP Chiropractor will start seeing clients from 1st June 2020
Please see below a message from Carolyn outlining guidelines, protocols and contact details moving forward.
PLEASE NOTE WHILE DAVID LLOYD REMAINS CLOSED, CAROLYN WILL SEE CLIENTS AT STUDIO 50
In line with Government guidance I am planning to reopen my practice to patients who deem themselves to have a medical/clinical need from the 1st June, and moving towards more routine care being available from July
'Government’s Statutory Instrument 2020 No. 350 The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020, which specifically allowed chiropractors to remain open and included within the definition of a reasonable excuse for travelling during the lockdown a medical need to visit a chiropractor.'
I have implemented the following processes to ensure the safety of my clients.
All patients contacting me for an appointment will be triaged by myself over the telephone to establish their clinical need and their COVID-19 status (asymptomatic / symptomatic / self-isolating / living with someone symptomatic or self-isolating / have been in contact with anyone symptomatic)
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms must stay away from the clinic.
In line with current guidelines, face to face care for anyone in the shielded category is not appropriate and can't be booked at this stage. Anyone in the vulnerable category that has symptoms will be triaged on the telephone and self care advised in the first instance. If they are in need of a face to face appointment, that will be discussed on an individual basis and risk assessed before any appointment can be made and appropriate measures taken.
A second triage is conducted at the practice before entering the building (including a temperature check)
The rest of the building and waiting area will be closed so you will be asked to wait outside the building prior to your appointment so please do not arrive too early. (Toilet facilities will be available for urgent/emergency use only.)
A strict cleaning, sanitation and infection control protocol will be strictly adhered too including the wearing of PPE in line with current Government guidelines. Please feel free to bring your own mask/face covering but if you don't have one, one will be provided.
You will be asked to sign a new Covid-19 specific consent form at your first visit since the lockdown and thereafter before attending for further sessions fill out a quick online form attached to the appointment confirmation email.
Overtime and as the situation with Covid-19 evolves I will continue to review all processes, continuing to follow government guidance along with advice from my regulator and professional association.
Because of the necessity to telephone triage there will be no online booking available at this stage so please phone/text me on 07790428373 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a mutually convenient time!
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the above or anything else prior to attending any appointments do not hesitate to contact me.
Pro Fusion Therapy look forward to seeing you all again soon, be rest assured we are working hard behind the scenes for your return!
