BTAC and Current COVID-19 Guidelines

Since Monday 12th April 2021 guidelines and rules that the Government put in to place have resulted in the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), supported in their role by the Professional Standards Agency (PSA), sanctioning it’s members to work with people at BAcC phase 2: Careful Practise

What does this mean for BTAC?

We have been informed, by the BAcC, that we may operate under our COVID-19 secure status and offer treatment to patients who might not only be considered as high needs or urgent care. In effect we may now commence work with individuals who use acupuncture as preventative medicine to help maintain their health and wellbeing.

To further clarify, since Monday 12th April 2021, we are allowed to work with any individual who we might treat under normal circumstances whereby we continue to incorporate procedures to mitigate against the risk of covid19 for all concerned – patients and practitioners alike.

If you are in doubt about any of the above and wish to discuss treatment with a practitioner under the current guidelines then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us by telephone or e-mail.

The BTAC team.
