Following the latest government announcement, we are delighted to be able to open from July 4th, as part of the government phase 3 plan. Behind the scenes, ourselves and New Energy Fitness have been working hard to make all necessary changes to ensure that your visit to our clinic is as safe as possible.
The required social distancing and heightened hygiene measures mean that we have made a number of changes to the set-up of our clinic. The measures that we have initiated fully meet the guidelines set by both the Government and our governing bodies (GMC & NMC).
When appropriate, we are offering our clients remote video consultations and follow up appointments to reduce your number of visits to our clinic. When you arrive at New Energy Fitness, to the rear of the building there are now individual sheltered areas to use while waiting for your appointment. When ready, we will call you and welcome you to the side entrance of the gym. This ensures there is only one client in the building at a time.
Strict measures have been put in place to ensure both yours and our safety. Please do not attend your appointment if yourself or anyone from your household has developed symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks. These symptoms include; fever, new continuous cough and a change in your sense of smell or taste.
On your arrival we will ask you a set of screening questions and take your temperature before you enter New Energy Fitness. Please use the provided alcohol hand gel before and after your appointment. During your appointment we will be wearing increased levels of personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes; face visor, gloves, surgical or N95 mask, apron and surgical scrubs. All surfaces will be cleaned with 70% alcohol sanitiser and the room will be ventilated for at least 15 minutes in between clients.
We hope that these measures give you reassurance that your safety is our priority during these unprecedented times. We hope you have all been well over this period and we look forward to welcoming you back to our clinic very soon.
