The Foundation Clinic : Message to our clients and supporters
Monday, 16 March 2020
The Foundation Clinic remains open to support the individuals and families that rely on us. We are taking all necessary precautions to support our inpatients, outpatients and family members.
We will be maintaining control sheets (recording individuals’ information if we need to contact them) for clients, staff and visitors to the clinic.
We will be monitoring temperatures and being vigilant for any signs or symptoms that may require medical attention or testing. We have a consultant general practitioner and 24-hour nursing staff to support our efforts.
Our staff and clients have been well briefed on the hygiene protocols and will be updated around signs and symptoms, and pertinent information as it becomes available. All out clients and staffs’ movements are being recorded and their temperatures taken at regular intervals during the days.
For the time being smaller meetings and support groups will continue to run at the clinic. David Collins has set up a Zoom account for online meetings and here are the ZOOM details for these daily meetings and support groups being run on the Pocket Rehab Coaching Network. As we wish to continue to support the recovery community during this time.
