Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy

 

Wiltshire Inch Loss Clinic

 

All of us have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

We have missed being able to offer you the treatments that we know you love, and we are looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible.

 

Our priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the clinic we have implemented several changes which we would like to make you aware of. During the time the clinic has been shut, we have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. We have since made several changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you next visit.

 

 

Booking Appointments

 

If I or any member of the team feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, we will self-isolate immediately and not come into the clinic. This may mean that we may have to cancel your appointment at short notice. We appreciate that this may be inconvenient, but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled, you will be able to re-book again or ask for a full refund of any deposit paid.

 

If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise us as soon as possible and please DO NOT COME TO THE CLINIC FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. We have amended our booking terms and conditions and you will not be charged for any appointments which you miss due to illness.

 

Visiting the Clinic

 

For your safety and to maintain social distancing, we ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving.

 

We have increased the frequency of cleaning in the clinic including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client.

 

As always, all tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety. 

 

Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.

 

 

You will have access to soap and hot water to wash your hands with as soon as you enter the clinic and we will also have hand sanitiser available.

 

We will understand and not be offended if you wish to wear a facemask or wear disposable gloves when you visit the salon and during your treatment if this is appropriate.

 

Please don’t be surprised or upset if the team use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This may include disposable gloves / facemasks / aprons where appropriate.

 

We can confirm that the laundering of  towels and uniforms is a priority we can assure you that all laundry is washed at 60 degrees C.

 

All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the treatment area between each client.

 

Our treatments

 

We have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and we are confident that we can continue to provide these safely.

 

During your treatment

 

The team understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that we wash our hands in according with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.

 

We will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments, please let us know and we will do what we can to satisfy you.

 

 

All these procedures have been implemented for your safety and that of the team. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
