We have been getting some questions from members asking if they can work in other modalities and why they cannot continue , so the committee have issued the following that i hope will answer these questions
Whilst some members have multiple qualifications in differing areas of healthcare, NAMMT has clearly and consistently directed their members not to work during this lockdown, in line with other soft tissue professional associations as well as the government guidelines. For modalities away from soft tissue work, such as acupuncture etc the member must seek permission from their related associations to work. This is outside of NAMMT and therefore the responsibility of the member to ensure they are cleared to work and are insured to do so. Again, the severity of the COVID19 variants make it more imperative than ever, for any therapist to evaluate the risk of still continuing to work, against protecting both the public and themselves.
We are working hard behind the scenes on your behalf to try and keep you all informed and safe during this topsy turvy time and as therapists ourselves, appreciate some of the guidance and regulations are tough to take.
Any further information we will update you.
And as always please stay safe
