Additional Vigilance for COVID-19 infection control

Daily, there are increasing numbers of positive Coronavirus cases being reported in the UK.  We, the Health in Motion team,  would like to let you know that it remains safe to come to our clinic for treatments. Since the clinic opened 5 years ago, we have put in place procedures to prevent the spread of communicable infection.  We have introduced another tier of precautions.

We are following guidelines from Public Health England (PHE) regarding clinic and personal hygiene and our disinfecting procedures have been increased, as a further precaution.  Also we are routinely screening both staff and patients, so please don’t be surprised if we ask you about your recent travel or contact with people who may have been exposed to COVID-19.

With our increased vigilance and your help, we are doing everything to keep the clinic virus free. In the unfortunate event the clinic has been exposed to the virus we will work hard to minimise disruption to our service as we follow deep clean and appropriate quarantine protocol as outlined by Public Health England.

If you have an appointment with us and you are unsure if you may be at risk of being infected, please call us for screening before coming to the clinic.
