UPDATED - 30/3/21 - Physiotherapy is able to remain OPEN during Scottish lockdown as we have all the necessary cleaning, PPE and other Covid-19 procedures in place.
Following Scottish government and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) guidance Highland Physiotherapy is able to stay open during the second lockdown in Scotland for face to face appointments, there are a number of changes within the clinic including:
- Please wear a face mask for your appointment. Julie will be wearing appropriate PPE.
- There will be no inside waiting area, please wait in your car until Julie invites you in via text message.
- Prior to coming into the clinic room, Julie will take your temperature using a non-contact thermometer. If your temperature records above 37°C, Julie will discuss options including re-arranging the appointment.
- You will be asked to answer a health questionnaire and sign a consent form, which includes consent for your information to be passed to government trace and track system if requested. If you are unwilling to consent to your information being forwarded the face to face appointment will be unable to go ahead.
