Covid 19 Safety Measures

Covid-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Light System) – Proof of vaccination status is not required as we are a healthcare service.  However please continue to attend your appointment wearing a mask and scan the QR code as this is mandatory.  If you are feeling unwell please cancel your appointment as we will be screening patients for Covid-19 symptoms.

The safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff is our utmost priority, we are therefore taking the following measures to provide a safe and hygienic environment at Moorhouse Osteopathic Centre.

Like other businesses tackling this issue, we’re being guided by the Ministry of Health which recommends regular cleaning as one of the most important preventive measures we can take. We are cleaning more frequently with a focus on high-touch areas; and we are reminding our staff and patients about good hygiene.

Other proactive measures we are taking are:

  • Hand sanitizers and masks are available; staff also have a supply of gloves.
  • Treatment tables, especially face holes, are thoroughly sanitized.
  • All Osteopaths wash their hands thoroughly, with soap between each patient.
  • Patients are encouraged to wash their hands when they arrive or use hand sanitizer.
  • Patients are asked to attend their appointment alone, if possible.
  • QR Code posters are displayed for contact tracing.
  • Commonly touched surfaces (e.g. Desks, pens, door handles) have been treated with Microbe Shield Surface Sanitizer Spray.
  • We are reminding our patients to refrain from coming to their appointments if they are sick or exhibit any symptoms, such as a new or worsening cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, sneezing/runny nose and temporary loss of smell. If you have any of these symptoms stay at home and contact Healthline (0800 358 5453) for advice, which may include getting a COVID-19 test as a precaution.

We are looking forward to supporting you in the future and we thank you for your ongoing co-operation in keep ourselves well and safe.
