I hope this email finds you well! Given the understandable concern over the recent rise of Coronavirus (COVID-19) I’d like to share my preventative measures and policies regarding this virus. I’m doing what I can to limit any possible speed of infection at Anne Etherton Acupuncture.
For everyone’s safety PLEASE CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT if you, or any friends or family that you have come in direct contact with, have developed difficulty breathing, a fever, cough or flu symptoms. Avoid contact with others and call 111 for advice also see https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
This is for everyone’s safety considering our current public health situation. Please cancel your appointment at the earliest opportunity if feeling unwell. You will not be charged for your appointment cancelled due to illness as long as I have advanced notice.
Many patients that come to me have serious health problems, are elderly, have suppressed immune systems, and other illnesses. It is my upmost priority to keep everybody safe especially when under my care. My promise to you is that I will also cancel our sessions if I start to feel unwell.
Strict cleaning measures are already in place, however at these times we want to be even more cautious and I would be grateful for your full cooperation with good hygiene practice.
I will be adding immune support points and protocols into each and every treatment. In the meanwhile, please look after yourselves, get good sleep, eat well and stay hydrated. Don’t allow the fear to put you into a panic.
Thank you for your understanding and this difficult time.
