COVID-19 Update (May 21st, 2020)
In line with guidance received from Public Health England (PHE) and our governing body, The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the clinic at Acupuncture West London has remained closed since March 21st, 2020.
Today, we received an update from the BAcC outlining their updated guidelines for its practitioners and their return to practice following Covid-19:
“We have now entered the next phase of the Covid-19 pandemic management and designated risk by government remains high. As of 21 May, it is [the British Acupuncture Council’s] view that [practitioners] should continue to suspend all practice unless it can be determined as ‘urgent care’: this refers to exceptional circumstances and does not signify a return to normal practice.”
At Acupuncture West London, while we are now, therefore, in a position to offer ‘urgent care’, we believe that it is not in the best interests of our patients and community to do so at this time. With this in mind, the clinic will continue to remain closed for all face-to-face appointments until further notice.
With the clinic remaining closed, however, we are still available should you have any questions and/or concerns about your health during this time. Additionally, we are able to provide online consultations in certain instances. Please get in touch for more information.
Stay safe and well,
