Coronavirus Guidance (Employees & Associates

Coronavirus Guidance (Employees & Associates)



  1. Whilst UK legislation no longer requires persons with COVID-19 to self-isolate, Purple House Clinics ask that you please do not attend our clinics if either you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19. Please also do not attend if you have vomiting or diarrhoea. 
  2. If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested, out of courtesy, you please inform the Clinical Director before attending in order to allow them to consider whether you should attend.
  3. If you are over 70, have a long-term condition, are pregnant or have a weakened immune system, please refer to medical advice.
  4. Please use hand sanitiser upon entry to the clinic and upon exit. 
  5. Please maintain good respiratory hygiene: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze, put used tissues in the bin straight away, and wash your hands afterwards. Avoid touching any part of your face.
  6. If you use the toilet facilities, please wash your hands with soap and water if you do so (for at least 20 seconds) and adhere to any other infection control guidance displayed in the toilet facilities.
  7. Try to minimise the exchange of objects with other people and avoid touching unnecessary surfaces.  

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all. We will be more than happy to help and are keen to be responsive to any feedback you may have.

Finally, please inform us if you experience symptoms of Covid-19 which have developed within 10 days after attending one of our clinics.

     Cleaning equipment

    Clinicians are asked to please clean any equipment you are using in the clinic before and after use. This includes medical devices such as height measures, as well as toys and psychometric assessments. Cleaning wipes or cloths/anti-bacterial spray should be available for you to use; please ask the Clinical Director, or another senior member of staff if you are not able to locate these. Thank you kindly for assisting in this.




    Please inform us immediately if you experience symptoms of Covid-19 which have developed within 10 days after working at one of our clinics.  


    Managing Client Cancellations

    If clients cancel due to concerns about coronavirus, late cancellation fees will not apply.


    If you are Unable to Work

    Unfortunately, self-employed Clinical Associates who are not able to work, or receive cancellations due to Coronavirus, cannot be remunerated by Purple House. 


    Specific Responsibilities for Self-employed Associates

    Due to their self-employed status, Associates carry some specific responsibilities in respect to the coronavirus risk:

    • To take overall responsibility for the assessment and management of their own health and safety at work relating to coronavirus and to stay up-to-date with any UK Government guidance issued.
    • To conduct their own risk assessments relating to covid-19 and implement any actions required arising from own risk assessments.
    • To communicate any concerns they have about Purple House’s approach to covid-19, or discrepancies with their own assessment/management of covid-19 to the Clinical Director.
    • To purchase any equipment or materials they deem necessary in relation to safe working and the risk of covid-19 (e.g. portable hand sanitisers, face coverings, video call software).
