How do you ensure you are COVID compliant?


I keep up to date with and follow all government guidelines. Before the initial visit you will need to complete a COVID declaration form and before each visit you will need to confirm that you or any memeber of your household does not have COVID symptoms, has not been in contact with anyone with COVID symptoms, has not travelled to a restricted area/country and has not been asked to isolate by track and trace. When I visit I wear full PPE as recommended by PHE which are gloves, apron and mask and before and after each visit I clean hands and sterilize any equipment. I also request that you and any member of your household in the same room wear a mask unless you are excempt for medical reasons.

You can pay by cash, card or cheque at the time of the visit or if you prefer I will post or email an invoice out every 2 weeks which you can pay by bank transfer.
