Covid-19 policy for Muswell Health

This policy outlines some of the key measures we have taken to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19). Please note the content may be subject to change.

Adhering to guidelines

Throughout the pandemic, we will be following guidelines issued by the government, NHS, other relevant authorities and our professional associations regarding safe and hygienic practice and the use of any personal protective equipment (PPE).

COVID-19 Risk Assessment

We have carried out a full risk assessment, in line with guidance in order to:

  • identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus;
  • think about who could be at risk;
  • decide how likely it is that someone could be exposed; and to
  • act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.

Enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures

We have introduced enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures between clients, which includes washing and disinfecting any non-porous surfaces and therapy equipment, such as chairs and couches, and replacing any porous or single-use items, such as towels and couch roll. Strict personal hygiene measures will also be adhered to, including regular handwashing/sanitising.

Adapting or restricting treatments

It may be necessary for us to adapt or restrict certain treatments, in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and/or protect clients’ health and safety. Any clients likely to be impacted will be advised as soon as possible.
