Covid-19 Pledge and Procedures.

The Movement Studio has conducted a thorough risk assessment to ensure adequate levels of safety in the building are implemented and maintained.  We are following the most up-to-date Government and Health Protection Scotland guidance and put in place stringent patient triage, hygiene, sanitation and infection control protocols to protect our patients / clients and team members.  Despite these precautions, there is a risk of transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and it is important that you understand the risk.

Precautions that The Movement Studio has in place:

All patients contacting us for an appointment have to satisfy a Level 1 remote triage to establish whether symptoms are present, if they are self-isolating, if anyone in their household has symptoms or is self-isolating, or they have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 symptoms.

We enforce a strict policy that anyone with any COVID-19 symptoms must stay away from The Movement Studio

A second triage is conducted at The Movement Studio, including temperature check.

A strict cleaning, sanitation and infection control protocol is adhered to.

All team members at The Movement Studio adhere to the social distancing guidance issued by Government.

The layout of the practice has been adapted to maintain social distancing.

 Patients waiting are restricted to one at any time and a 2-metre distance will be enforced between patients and non-clinical team members.
