With the lifting of restrictions it is now again possible to book in person Sports Therapy session and I am looking forward to welcoming you back.  The following is being put in place to help reduce the risks to you, the client and also the therapist. If you prefer, online appointments are still available.

How will things be different with your next appointment with Jirou Sports Therapy?


Booking your session:

New clients; your initial consultation will be via video conferencing or via a telephone call.  If the issue requires a face to face appointment, this will then be arranged.  You will be asked to complete a standard consultation form and a Covid-19 declaration form and bring it with you.

For existing clients, there will be a short catch up call before arranging an appointment and you will be asked to complete a Covid-19 declaration form and bring it with you.

If you fall into a higher risk category with regards to Covid-19 (e.g. pregnancy, have had Covid-19 or been exposed to it, front line healthcare personnel, you or someone in your household is clinically extremely vulnerable, over 70 years) this will be considered when deciding if an in person appointment is appropriate at this time and, if so, what additional precautions would be necessary for both of our safe care.

Prior to attending your appointment:

Please check your temperature and consider if you or anyone within your bubble has any Covid -19 symptoms. If yes, or in doubt, please postpone the session.

Please bring;

your own pen, and any signed documents.

your own mask/ face covering if you have one.

The minimum of belongings to the appointment (e.g. jewellery, bag, coat)

You will be asked to pay for your appointment by bank transfer.

What to expect when you arrive:

Please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible.

You will be met either at my front door or, near to the front door at Big Rock.  Please follow the procedures which Big Rock have in place as you enter the building.  Please do not touch anything on the premises as you walk in.

The therapist will take and record your temperature using an infra red thermometer.

You will be asked to take off your shoes, to use hand sanitiser before donning a mask, prior to entering the treatment room. (If you can bring your own mask, that would be appreciated, otherwise a mask will be provided for you.).

You will be asked to put all of your belongings/any clothing you remove in a plastic box.

Upon departure:

If the mask was obtained from the therapist, please leave this on the table for disposal.

Please use the hand sanitiser upon leaving the therapy room and prior to putting on your shoes.


What additional procedures are in place for the safety of you and the therapist?

The therapist will:

Take and record her temperature daily.

Carryout the appropriate cleaning and disinfecting of the therapy room between clients.

Carry out additional hand washing and use hand sanitiser where appropriate (e.g. prior to and after physical contact of the client.)

Wear PPE in accordance with current government guidelines, including a visor and gloves (these will not affect any soft tissue work I perform).

I have completed the WHO (world Health Organisation) courses on cleaning in a health care setting,  how to don and doff PPE correctly and correct hand washing procedures.

Windows and doors will be open for ventilation (with the exception of the door when a client requires modesty due to necessary removal of clothing for hands on treatment). The outer room will not be in use so client confidentiality will be maintained.

Currently there are no bathroom facilities available and I am unable to supply glasses of water.

Should you have any questions with regards to this, please do ask.

I look forward to seeing you soon.GCMT-Covid-19-Screening-and-Consent
