 Below is a list of Therapy Businesses that can practice during the current lockdown as laid out by the Government.

“Dental services, opticians, audiology services, chiropody, chiropractors, osteopaths and other medical or health services, including services relating to mental health”.

If you feel that your business falls within these guidelines then you can continue with face to face appointments. We would ask you to consider the following:-

  1. Follow the Government guidelines and advice at all times and abide by any legislative requirements.
  2. Consult your Professional Body, Association and/or Training Provider for guidance, if relevant.
  3. Follow Best Practice guidance and observe any Codes of Conduct, if relevant.
  4. Consider whether it is essential that you undertake work, whether you are deemed a key or critical worker and whether all Government restrictions have been lifted for your business sector.
  5. Evaluate whether you can treat clients remotely via video-link and observe social distancing rules/infection control. Execute your own professional judgement.

“With regards to face to face appointments, it must, in your professional opinion require face to face work at this moment. You must consider whether it can wait until after lockdown. If you decide to proceed you must be working in a COVID 19 secure environment and you must explain the risks of a face to face appointment to your client, who must then indicate that they are happy to proceed on this basis”.

All of the above considerations must be detailed in your notes.
