Covid-19 Update

OLA'S COVID-19 PROCEDEDURES AND GUIDELINES

Ola is taking all possible steps to make your time with us as safe as possible - and to provide reassurance to those who are more vulnerable.

We have reconfigured the way we use space within Ola and now have two waiting rooms and additional new waiting zones around the clinic. This, in conjunction with a controlled flow of people in and out of the clinic, means we can minimise contact between clients.

Please note it is now a requirement that you read and complete our COVID-19 questionnaire before your appointment. This will be sent to you via email on our booking system prior to your appointment. If you require assistance once you have completed this form, then please call the clinic and speak to a member of staff.

 

WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT OLA, PLEASE FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES

We request that visitors sanitise their hands, using the hand sanitiser provided, on entering the building.  

Reception staff will tell you which waiting area or treatment room you need to go to.

We have introduced a one-way system in and out of the centre. Enter via the usual main stairs and exit via the back stairwell - you will see signposts.

 

OTHER MEASURES OLA HAS INTRODUCED

We have increased the distances between chairs in the waiting room.

Our staff frequently sanitise work surfaces, chairs, door handles and the card payment machine.

We sanitise treatment beds between patients using an anti-viral spray as well as a UV wand.

We are wearing the correct PPE, as advised by Public Health England and the British Chiropractic Association.

We are keeping windows open for fresh air flow.

We are keeping contact time between you and your practitioner to a maximum of 20 minutes; 45 minutes for new patients.

 

IF YOU ARE AT HIGHER RISK...

Unfortunately, we can’t see you if you, or someone in your household/under your care, is in a higher risk group for complications from the virus.  High risk or extremely clinically vulnerable people are advised to shield.  More information on what dictates an extremely clinically vulnerable person can be found at this link:

Please reschedule your appointment (for two weeks’ time) if you, or someone in your household/under your care are self-isolating, or have any symptoms such as:
