Just giving you an update on reopening my practice. I have been ok’d to reopen from 6th July by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. Unfortunately because of a delay fitting the door entry system I am now aiming to be open from the week beginning Monday 13th July.
There will be some things that have been put in place to help protect you and me. On the day of the appointment if you have any symptoms of possible infection or think you have been recently exposed to someone with Coronavirus, PLEASE call or text and cancel. My usual 24 hours notice does not apply at this time. When you arrive there will be a buzzer and intercom outside the door, please buzz and I will release the door to let you in. Just inside the door I will check your temperature using an infrared laser thermometer and there will be hand sanitiser which you need to use. There are also masks which I require you to wear. Only one person will be allowed in at a time unless someone under 18 is being accompanied by an adult. Anyone crossing the threshold will be temperature checked and need a mask.
If your temperature is elevated or you have had any symptoms in the last 2 weeks, at my discretion the appointment will end and we will not be able to continue, sorry. I have members of my family who are elderly and very vulnerable and I cannot risk it.
When walking in we will maintain a 2m distance between us, there are tapes on the floor. You can chose to pay in advance by bank transfer, (bank details below) or pay by cash or cheque on the day. There will be one use untouched envelopes to put the money into at the close of the session if you have decided to pay in cash or by cheque. The envelopes are not handled by anyone else.
In between sessions I will be cleaning down all the surfaces anyone comes into contact with using an alcohol based cleanser and you can use the hand sanitiser on the way out. Hopefully this will enable us to complete your sessions in safety for you and me. If there is anything about these arrangements you feel uncomfortable with then we can conduct your sessions at a later date when precautions we need to take against this horrible virus will be eased.
I will be emailing or texting clients who are waiting to start sessions again, new clients who have contacted me during the lockdown and existing clients that were in the midst of having sessions when lockdown began, to let them know these arrangements and get some appointment dates booked. If you read this and want to get in touch you can text on 07920774332 or email David @ 4u4life .co .uk (leave out the spaces) are the best ways and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Stay safe everyone and hopefully 2020 will improve dramatically over the next few months.
