Re-opening 29th June!

UPDATE:

We expect our branches around Ireland to re-open on 29th June, in Phase 3 of the national pathway for reopening. In the meantime, we are taking appointments and continuing our online services, so please continue to contact your nearest branch for information.

Be assured that in the meantime, we are working hard on our re-opening plan. We know that in order to resume face-to-face appointments we will need to be certain to safeguard the well-being of our clients and staff, while maintaining our commitment to the highest quality Speech and Language Therapy service provision.

Just some of our planned precautions;

  • We will concentrate on social distancing and hand hygiene, avoiding touching faces, and taking appropriate precautions with coughs/sneezes. We will insist on hand sanitizer/hand washing pre- and post-sessions for both clients and staff, and we will sanitise all surfaces and equipment between clients.
  • We intend to stagger appointments to minimise any overlap in our waiting areas
  • We will require clients to complete a questionnaire before attending, and to inform us of any risk exposure or symptoms of Covid-19 that they may have experienced. It is likely that we will also take the temperature of clients before they enter our therapy space, and also of our staff frequently throughout the day.
  • We are working hard with our colleagues in ISTI and IASLT to determine the best course of action in terms of facial protection – it is anticipated that the use of face masks will not be practical for some aspects of speech therapy, so we will ensure that alternative safety measures are in place.

Our dysphagia services to hospitals and nursing homes across the country continue in consultation with each individual site.

Thank you all for your ongoing support.
