BTST Coronavirus Procedures

We like to think the health and happiness of our patients, learners, guests and team at BTST are always our top priority, but that has never been more true than it is now.

AT BTST we are 100% committed to providing a safe environment and therefore following the advice given by our government and our governing bodies, we have put in place the following procedures..

(Please note as news and advice is developing / changing daily so will our procedures and policies.)

New Procedures

– All BTST team members have been fully briefed on all new policies and procedures including; Use of PPE, post treatment clinic clean down, Patient appointment spacing, personal hygiene etc. 

– Please complete the Covid19 online questionnaire before every appointment, preferably the day before

– Please complete the medical questionnaire if you are a new patient or you’re an existing patient attending with new symptoms – Please complete before your online consultation

– All physical treatments in clinic will be split in two, separating the consultation and treatment. The consultation part will take place the day before or the morning of your appointment via a video call made through the booking system Cliniko (link will be found on your email). This will then shorten your time in clinic to cover the examination and treatment.

– On arrival please wait in your car and only enter the clinic at your precise appointment time

– On entering the clinic please do NOT sit down or touch anything in reception.

– On entering the clinic please use the hand sanitiser, we ask you bring your own face mask (material one is fine) if you are not able to provide your own face mask, Please let us know before arriving as we will provide you a mask at the cost of £1 this will be awaiting next to the hand sanitiser for you on arrival

– Your therapist will be wearing full PPE as advised; Goggles, Fluid resistant Surgical Mask, Gloves and Apron.

– Post treatment your therapist will thoroughly clean and sanitise all high-contact areas within our clinic (including; couches, medical grade pillows, handles, Card machine, bathroom facilities etc.) ensuring the highest possible hygiene standards throughout.

– Adequate time of 15mins will be allocated to air out and ventilate the clinic room between patients, this does mean we will not be able to run over

– During your treatment the treatment room door and window will remain open to help air circulation – Whilst the door remains open please rest assured there will be no one in close proximity to the room to hear or see into the room ensuring to keep patient confidentiality. 

– NO aircon units will be used due to the fan motion instead an oiled filled heater will be used to provide a comfortable room temperature

– Sanitiser is available in the reception area and clinic rooms, along with soap and water available at all sinks for patient to sanitise before treatment before applying mask and after treatment before touching clinic main door handle. (mask to be removed after leaving clinic)

– ALL payments to be made before treatment or via contactless payment – NO CASH

– We ask all patients with booked appointments that need to cancel, please continue to give us the required 24hours notice where possible, as we still have patients in pain struggling to get in who could have the appointment if we’re provided with enough notice.

– We have no team members who have returned or returning from any affected areas / countries. Any team members exhibiting any cold or flu-like symptoms and/or a fever are being asked NOT to come in to work or to go home immediately and self-quarantine for 14 days. This may result in appointments being cancelled at short notice but we will do our upmost to reschedule the appointment ASAP. 

Before Attending your appointment

Before Attending you appointment please complete the following Coronavirus Pre-Treatment Questionnaire

If it is your first appointment or you are returning to the clinic with new symptoms please complete the following Medical Questionnaire
