Covid-19 Information

Please see below on how Roz Physio & Pilates is dealing with the 2020 Coronavirus outbreak and how this affects my Physiotherapy and Pilates provision.

Face-to-Face Sessions | Video Calls | Contact

Physiotherapy / Pelvic Health

I’ll be completing all initial sessions via Video Call (Zoom) only, as per current Physio guidance. I can provide face to face or virtual sessions following this (we have to complete a risk assessment – how risky it is for you to see me vs possible benefits – and screen you for Covid-19 symptoms), as appropriate. The guidance we have to follow for for whether we can see someone face to face or not is here.

Face to Face (F2F) Sessions

We have to follow strict guidelines for Physiotherapy sessions and thus I can only provide F2F follow up sessions. Unfortunately I can’t provide Pilates 1:1s face-to-face at this time.

Personal Protective Equipment

I will be wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) for our sessions (single use) and the area we’re working in will be cleaned thoroughly between clients. If you’d prefer me to clean any areas you’ll be coming into contact with, in front of you, that is no problem at all – just let me know (just beware that the cleaning solution I use can take a few mins to dry!).
I will be wearing a set of nitrile gloves, a plastic disposable apron and a fluid resistant face mark (IIR) for each individual client. If you want to see the Government guidance that I am following regarding use of PPE, please see here.

Do you need to wear a mask?

I am not currently seeing anyone with possible/confirmed Covid-19, so there is no need for you to wear a mask. You are, however, very welcome to bring and wear your own (of any type).

Hand Washing

I have alcohol (80%) hand rub available on site and will ask you to use this on entry and exit. I will be cleaning my hands (either hand rub or soap and water) at the start and finish of our sessions and after any hands-on work together. You are welcome to use the hand rub at any time.

Social Distancing

For most of the session, I will be keeping a 2m distance away from you to minimise the risk of potential transmission to both you and me. We have been advised to keep any contact less than 2m apart, to within 15mins. For follow up sessions of 30mins, this would normally be how long we’d have out hands on you (assessement/treatment) but for initials we may need to be a bit more hands off / defer some tests to future sessions (I’ll be risk assessing as we go along and will let you know what I’m doing/not doing and why).

Can I bring someone with me?

Ideally, no.
If you need to bring your child with you, please let me know when booking, so that we can ensure a suitable set up and screening process. Only babies and infants are allowed in sessions. If you child is mobile then I’m afraid it is not possible to bring them along.
If you feel youneed someone with you during the session eg. a chaperone for an examination / interpreter, then please discuss this with me in advance of your session. I will try to accommodate this wherever possible, within the current rules.

Toilets

There is a toilet on site that you are welcome to use. Door handles and the toilet and sink area will be cleaned between use. There will be soap and hand rub available in the bathroom.
