Until further notice I will be carrying out pre-treatment discussions with clients to ensure that they are not experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 or are in the vulnerable persons category.
The health and safety of my clients is my top priority. If the client is deemed to be extremely vulnerable to Covid-19 or has a health contra-indication to treating, then I will carry out an individual risk assessment and if necessary ask for permission from their care provider to treat and defer seeing them for treatments until it is appropriate and safe to do so.
I will contact each client before their appointment to check whether they are isolating, have Covid-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone with symptoms. If the answer is yes to any of these questions then I will defer seeing them for treatments until they have been tested and/or have self isolated following the current UK Government guidelines. If they have not tested for Covid-19 or sought medical advice then I will refer the client to the NHS.
