COVID-19 update: we are open (read full update>>>)

We are open

COVID-19 update 1 November 2020

Following the government announcement of a 4-week national lockdown, we want to reassure you that we will remain OPEN.

As a healthcare provider, we are exempt from closure and can continue to provide treatments to existing and new patients. There are minor exceptions, for example cosmetic acupuncture as it is not usually performed for medical reasons.

The government announcement encouraged people to continue to access their necessary and routine healthcare and the rules allow people to leave their home for medical and health related appointments.

We will continue to implement our stringent COVID-19 mitigation (see below). If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch by email info@cam-therapies.co.uk or by phone 01223510611.

COVID-19 infection control measures

We are taking every possible precaution to keep you and our staff safe. 

PPE

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is worn by practitioners when providing
treatments in close proximity to the patient. This includes a face mask, gloves, an apron and eye protection (for aerosol generating procedures).

HYGIENE

All patients will be asked to disinfect their hands on arrival and will be provided with a face mask to wear throughout the consultation. Please watch the videos below about correct hand disinfection techniques and how to put on and take off surgical masks.

DISINFECTION PROCEDURE

Extra time is allowed between each appointment for thorough disinfection and ventilation of the treatment room. 

NO LINEN

All linen has been removed to reduce the risk of spread of infection. Please wear loose comfortable clothing that can be easily rolled up. For some treatments you may need to undress to your undergarments, so you might want to wear sports or swimming style underwear to feel more comfortable.

ARRIVAL PROCEDURE


Our waiting area is temporarily unavailable. When you arrive, please do not enter the clinic; wait outside and we will come out and invite you in when we have completed the disinfection process. 

*NEW* TELEHEALTH FACILITY

For patients who are unable to attend in person we now offer Telehealth (virtual) appointments during which we will teach you simple self-treatment techniques to manage your symptoms. Please contact us if this is something you are interested in. 

ONLINE PAYMENTS

To reduce the need for handling of cash or cards, patients are asked to pre-pay online or over the phone before or soon after each appointment. Thank you for your understanding.

PRE-SCREENING

We are pre-screening all patients before each appointment. Those patients who have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone positive for COVID-19, or those who need to self-isolate will be asked to postpone their appointment.
