Covid 19 Infection, Prevention & Control

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy For Sorcha Cubitt Laser & Aesthetics

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected how I run my business. To keep you as safe as possible, I have updated my skills in line with government guidelines and legislation. I have completed the COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control course accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd (one of the UK trade bodies for our industry), as well as the VTCT Level 2 Infection Prevention and Control.

I have also implemented a number of changes in the way that I will operate my business which you will notice when you next visit.

Covid-19 Symptoms

If I feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, I will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that I will have to cancel your appointment at short notice. I appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book or ask for a full refund if you have PRE-PAID, or have a voucher in lieu of the treatment.

If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. If you suffer any ailments that place you as a vulnerable person, please request an EARLY time slot to avoid any possible contact with other people.

 

Visiting the Salon

For your safety and to maintain social distancing, please attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving. If you arrive early, please stay in your car and text me that you have arrived. I will reply to confirm safe entry to the premises. Please leave all your personal belongings in your car where possible, and car keys in your pockets.

Touch free hand wash, sanitizer and single use towels are available for you to wash your hands on entry and departure. A touch free towel bin has been provided to dispose of soiled linen. I have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between every client. All tools and equipment will be disinfected and sterilized in line with the manufacturers instructions for your safety. Salon towels and uniforms are laundered daily at 60 degrees.

Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.

If you wish, you can wear a face mask when you visit the salon and during your treatment unless the treatment dictates removal. I will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This will include disposable gloves, facemasks, apron and goggles. 

 

My treatments

In accordance with Government guidelines, I have carried out risk assessments on all treatments and I am confident that I can continue to provide these safely

 

During your treatment

I understand the importance of hand hygiene and I will ensure that I wash my hands in accordance with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment. I will also wear gloves throughout treatment to ensure hygiene conditions. If you have any concerns about your treatments, please let me know.

 

Payments 

FULL PAYMENT is required at the time of booking. This can be done by bank transfer (please contact us directly for details). A full refund will be issued if 48 hours notice has been given.  Please see Bookings & Cancellations
