The Sunflower Centre Covid-19 Risk Assessment - salient points (more details available on request)

A comprehensive Covid-19 infection prevention and control Risk Assessment was undertaken on 20th May 2020 and is updated regularly, resulting in the following measures being implemented:

  • a partial one way system is in place in that one door is for entering, another door is assigned for exiting the building
  • hand sanitiser is available both on entry to the building and outside both washrooms
  • the use of hand sanitiser will mitigate the risk of cross contamination person to person through touching surfaces throughout the building, including inside treatment rooms and washrooms
  • we have eliminated fabric and replaced with vinyl/plastic where necessary for ease of cleaning
  • appropriate ventilation time buffers between client sessions have been introduced
  • heightened cleaning procedures are in place
  • relevant PPE is in use
  • room size has been taken into consideration and larger rooms are being used where necessary
  • we have plans in place for if anyone using the building - practitioner or patient - is contacted by the Track & Trace app
