COVID-19: Protocols 

COVID-19: What are we doing to keep you safe?

In collaboration with The Wellbeing Studio and At The Gym, KB Musculoskeletal Therapy has made a number of changes to keep you and us safe during this time. 

Changes for the client:

When booking:

  • Clients will be contacted prior to their session (via confirmation/ reminder emails) to asses their current health and risk asses for the face to face session. Any clients with symptoms of COVID-19, or who are self isolating due to contact with a person with COVID-19 symptoms will not be able to attend their session and will be rescheduled. 

  • Any clinically extremely vulnerable clients will be unable to attend the treatment room. This will be reconsidered again at another time. Please see https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/people-at-higher-risk/whos-at-higher-risk-from-coronavirus/ for more information.

  • The booking form has been extended and when booking you will have to fill in more details than normal. If you register on the booking system then you won't have input these every time. 

 

Before appointment:

  • Arrive at time of appointment, no earlier or later - I will contact you when you can leave your car to enter the building

  • Everyone will sanitise their hands outside the building prior to ringing the doorbell or entering the building

  • After entering the building I will ask you to wash your hands

  • I will greet all clients at the front door and show them through the building and kindly ask to not touch unnecessary surface

 

During appointment:

  • Client must wear face mask/ face covering during entire appointment

  • We will make a conscious effort to use minimal equipment during the appointment to ensure optimal sanitisation after appointment

What will I be doing behind the scene?

  • I will follow the specific government guidelines, governing body and insurer advise for my profession and act accordingly at all times. 

  • I will sanitise my hands before entry and wash my hand with soap on entry and exit to TWS.

  • I will ensure I increase time between client sessions to allow for extra cleaning and no client overlap.

  • I will clean all surfaces that my clients have come in contact with after their session. This is to include chairs, doors, tables, doorbell, toilet, door handles.

  • I will ventilate the room more than normal and as necessary, in between my clients. 

  • I will clean all surfaces I have come in contact with prior to leaving TWS. This will include all tables, chairs, toilet, kitchen surfaces, light switches, door handles, heaters.

  • I will manage a contact COVID-19 scenario as suggested by government guidelines.

  • I understand that all soft furnishings have been removed from the therapy room to increase hygiene and safety. There will be no cushions, blankets, couch covers etc. Anything I bring into the room that comes into contact with clients will need to be disposed of safely and removed for washing by me, (the therapist).

  • I understand that the waiting room will not be used for ‘waiting’; all chairs, refreshments and free standing promotional material have been removed to prevent contamination. There will still be the opportunity to use the wall fixings for specific promotions which you can contact me (Sara) about.

  • If necessary I will provide and be responsible for the careful and safe disposal of all my own PPE

If you are currently in one of the below categories, then your appointment will have to be rescheduled until the risk of contracting COVID-19 is lowered.
