Important information about your session: Covid-19 security at the Centre
Before your appointment
You must inform us if:
you have symptoms of Covid- 19 infection
you are considered ‘clinically vulnerable’ or ‘extremely clinically vulnerable’ and so at greater risk
If your practitioner decides it is not safe for you to come to the clinic we will contact you. As an alternative, they may offer a consultation by telephone or video call.
Before giving any treatment, your practitioner will ask you to read and sign a consent form, which must be completed before your appointment can go ahead.
Going to the clinic
Special arrangements are now in place to safeguard you when you go for a therapy session at the Centre. To help us manage the circumstances in Clinic properly, please follow whatever directions you are given, including:
travel light and take very little with you into the clinic – if possible, leave bags, coats, etc in the car
go to the clinic alone (unless you need a chaperone, parent or carer)
try to arrive on time – not late, and not more than 5 minutes before your session
follow any safety advice displayed at the clinic, including social distancing
IMPORTANT: you must wash your hands immediately on entering the clinic. Bathrooms are available just past reception for this purpose
we are operating a one-way system, in through the front entrance and exit through our disabled access door (unless you need to use this entrance)
where possible, please use online or contactless payments
During your treatment
Depending on the type of treatment, your practitioner may need to wear some form of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, face shields, gloves and aprons.
During close contact treatment you will be asked to use the mask you have brought with you, otherwise your session may not be able to go ahead.
After your appointment
If you develop Covid-19 symptoms or have a confirmed diagnosis of Covid-19 within 48 hours of having acupuncture, please immediately inform both:
