According to Government legislation in the light of the recent Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, I am required to complete a Risk Assessment with each client before they attend for their appointment. The aim of this Risk Assessment is to establish whether clients (or any close contacts of the client) could be at risk of having and potentially spreading the virus.
The Risk Assessment will also identify other circumstances when treatment may not be appropriate, such as if clients are currently classed as “clinically extremely vulnerable” and previously required to shield, or within 72 hours of a Covid-19 vaccination.
Please note that I do not require clients to be vaccinated to attend for treatment. I respect your rights and freedom to choose whether a vaccination is right for you and will not discriminate against any individual wishing to attend for treatment based on their vaccine status.
Please also note that whilst new government guidance (as of 07.08.21) states that double vaccinated individuals or those under the age of 18 are not required to self isolate following contact with a person with Covid-19, I have taken the decision to refrain from providing treatment in such cases until 10 days after the last known contact. This is because, despite the new guidance, we know that vaccinated individuals can still catch and transmit Covid-19 and thus still pose a potential risk to myself and other clients.
Please click the link below to view the questions I will be asking before each session. Please familiarise yourself with the questions before your session as, should you be exhibiting signs of the virus or have been at risk of contracting the virus due to recent activities, I may have to decline treatment on the day of your appointment.
If you have any queries about anything in this Risk Assessment, please do not hesitate to contact me.
