Covid-19 Update

Update for the second Lockdown.

The latest update from the British Acupuncture Council is that, given that medical and dental services are allowed to continue:

The position of the BAcC is that acupuncture performed by our members is included within the definition of ‘medical services’ and should therefore be able to practice. We are supported in this classification by the Professional Standards Agency. This means that our members should be able to practice in BAcC phase 3: Urgent care and high needs.

A Reminder of BAcC phase 3: Urgent care and high needs

It is down to individual professional judgement who fits into the category of Urgent Care and high needs. This can depend on whether the patient is likely to require further medication or see a GP if they weren't treated until after the lockdown.

A consideration could also be whether their treatment is time dependant such as in IVF cases.

Cosmetic or purely wellbeing treatments should stop, however anything affecting mental health and the maintenance of chronic pain etc could be seen as High Needs. Please judge each case individually and record in their notes your reasons for the decision.

Beginnings

Jamie Gisby began his career by studying pharmacology at University College London in the early eighties. My scientific background has given me a good grounding in understanding and assessing the scientific literature. I love to keep up to date with science but realised that lab work was not the right path for me. Whilst at university I got into yoga, meditation and Eastern philosophy and felt a strong tug to move in that direction. I friend suggested I should study acupuncture. Not knowing what it was I read one of the few books available back then, and I was totally hooked.
