A further update to PPE, infection prevention and control guidance
Further to the guidance we published on 4th September 2020, and following discussions with several professional bodies including British Chiropractic Association, Public Health England and NHS England have communicated that eye protection may be risk assessed in the medium risk pathway.
They have also confirmed that for patients in the medium risk pathway the use of mask, gloves and apron are required and cannot be risk assessed.
Chiropractors must continue to use their professional and clinical judgement in their risk assessments of treating patients relevant to the setting, procedure and context. We expect these assessments to take into account the increase in cases of coronavirus.
