UPDATE 5th January 2021
We wanted to update you following the recent Government announcement regarding the National Lockdown on Monday 4th January.
WE ARE STAYING OPEN.
We are classified as an essential health care service and are therefore committed to your wellbeing care whilst keeping everyone in the clinic safe, as we have been doing since March 2020. You will be aware that we have social distancing, santisation, and personal protective equipment (PPE) procedures in place that are diligently followed by the team and clients.
If you are isolating due to being in the “at risk” or “vulnerable” categories, please let us know so that we can discuss options and ensure that you have appointments booked for when you will be able to attend.
FOR THOSE IN THE “EXTREMELY Clinically Vulnerable” category please let us know so that we can make arrangements for your care.
UPDATE 1st November 2020
Good morning all.
Following yesterday’s Government announcement we just wanted to let you know that it is business as usual for us as we continue to demonstrate best practise and help to keep our community well.
As in the previous lock-down, we will remain open as healthcare providers.
As many of you already know, we have all the necessary safety procedures in place – social distancing, PPE, client screening, temperature checks and masks for all.
(We insisted on this back in May. If this had been done nationally from the start, maybe this lockdown could have been prevented.)
Official association guidelines will emerge over the next day or 2, but no change is expected.
In summary, we continue to be there for you all in these challenging times.
Julien and the SSC team.
WE ARE OPEN. All services to resume as 6th July 2020.
To restrict the spread of COVID-19, ensure the safety of our clients and team and comply with the current legislation we have worked out how to achieve this.
Here’s our 10 STEP SYSTEM DETAILING WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AND DO:
Basically, this is what needs to be achieved to maintain the 2m social distancing and get adjusted.
Watch a ‘walk through’ with Julien showing you what needs to be done here.
Please note that when we filmed this we didn’t have all the PPE gear. When you see Julien he will be in scrubs, wearing a disposable apron, one use gloves, eye protection and IIR mask. It’s not pretty, but it is super safe and that’s what matters.
