**Important  Covid-19 Guidelines Update**

As you are no doubt all aware, the previous UK Health Security Agency Covid IPC guidance (Infection prevention and control for seasonal respiratory infections in health and care settings (including SARS-CoV-2) for winter 2021 to 2022) was withdrawn on 27 May 2022. This removed the requirement for the use of face masks and other PPE in health care settings in England and Wales, unless in the case of a known Covid infection or risk of splash.

Because of the variability of the guidance, Revive physiotherapy recommends that you read the CSP National infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance issued on 31st May 2022.

CSP Guidance

The CSP guidance is that, if you still wish to continue with measures,that must be in response to your own risk assessment, but if you do require staff to use face masks, then please request this prior to your appointment.

What this means in practical terms is that Revive physiotherapy has withdrawn its blanket Covid policy.

What we’re doing

  • A high standard of hygiene is practiced by staff at Revive to minimise risk of transmission. Therapists will clean and disinfect the couch, chairs and all touch points/surfaces between uses.
  • Aeration of the rooms will be increased.

  • Arrive on time at your appointment; if you arrive too early, you may have to wait outside the practice.
