Dear MH&P patients, families, caregivers and colleagues
Following President Ramaphosa’s announcement yesterday evening, we as MH&P responded by calling an urgent staff meeting this morning to discuss how best we can manage this crisis.
We are very aware of the devastating effects of this virus on society, and particularly on our patients undergoing rehabilitation who still need our help and support, even more so at times like these.
We strongly encourage our patients to cancel appointments if they are not well, or have been exposed to others with the Coronavirus.
However, if you are well, and have no risk factors related to travel or developing symptoms, please continue to attend your rehabilitation sessions. We have put extreme measures in place to minimize your risk of infection, and whilst the virus is still reasonably contained, we remain OPEN and committed to providing the continuity of therapy that is so important to achieving therapy goals.
Please be assured that we have already and will continue to implement stringent infection control and social distancing policies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees, our patients and their loved ones at our units. We are committed to providing the same level of care and quality of therapy as we usually do, within a safe and controlled environment.
If you have any questions or concerns, or would like more information, you are welcome to email us at [email protected]
