Covid-19 policy and procedures

Updated 6 January 2021
Remote Cognition and Learning Assessments are currently available. These are identical to face-to-face assessments but take place online over screen sharing technology. 
Where it is not possible or appropriate to conduct a remote assessment, we are  able to offer a face-to-face appointments, under strict social distancing and Covid-19 guidelines, in our Colchester clinic. 
 
Your safety and the safety of our practitioners is our priority.  The following measures have been implemented to reduce the possible transmission of Covid-19.
Additional hygiene measures 
  • Our consulting rooms are cleaned before and after every assessment. 
  • Equipment is cleaned before and after use.
  • Anyone entering the room is required to clean their hands using the sanitiser provided.
  • Tissues, hand sanitiser, and wipes are available for the client to use throughout the assessment.
Use of PPE
  • All adults and children over the age of 11 are required to wear a face covering when in the building unless they are in an exempt category. 
  • The practitioner will wear a visa/face mask throughout the assessment. 
Social distancing measures
  • Clients are asked to arrive at the time of their appointment, not before.
  • Use of electronic assessments (iPads) allows a physical distance of 2 metres between the child and practitioner. 
  • We have reduced the number of assessments that take place per week. 
Procedures
  • Clients are required to confirm they have read and agree to the Covid-19 policy and procedures.
  • Clients are required to sign a Covid-19 waiver and symptom check before the appointment. 
  • On arrival, temperatures are taken at the door.
  • Clients are required to sign in using the NHS track and Trace system. The barcode for scanning this on a phone is displayed outside the consulting room door. 
We do not permit anyone with Covid-19 symptoms to enter the consulting room. If you or anyone in your household have Covid-19 symptoms and are therefore required to self-isolate, there is no charge for cancelling/rescheduling the appointment.
