The English Government updated it's guidance for healthcare settings on June 1st and removed the statutory requirement for facemasks to be worn.
Since March 2020, we have been following all Public Health England guidance closely and ensuring that we minimise the risk to our clients and their families as much as we possibly can. We understand fully how vulnerable some of our clients are and what a scary time it has been over the last 2 years. It may be even scarier now!
From today, as per our updated risk assessment (attached) if clients are comfortable we will no longer wear medical IIR masks nor disposable aprons and gloves. If we predict however that we may be in contact with any bodily fluids then we will continue to wear our full PPE.
Please be reassured that we will check with each and every one of our clients before we change our practice to ensure everyone continues to feel safe during our sessions.
All of our cleaning and hand hygiene procedures remain unchanged as does our twice weekly testing to ensure all our team are testing negative.
