Resources to help you thrive - through COVID-19 and beyond


CMA Resources and Training to support you personally and professionally during the COVID-19 challenge - and beyond


We have received several questions regarding whether or not practitioners in the UK can return to work.

The Complementary Medical Association is only able to provide guidance in line with government recommendations. We appreciate that the government recommendations are confusing, and that you may need to interpret them for your own personal situation. However, please be aware that there may be issues with insurance if you were to go back to work before you received government permission to do so. For example, let’s say a patient contracted COVID-19, and pointed fingers towards you or your practice as being the source of the infection. If you were returning to work with government backing, the insurance companies would have to cover you. If however you returned to work before the government guidance suggested it was okay, then the chances are that you could open yourself up to liability. We are awaiting further comment from our insurers, Balen’s, and as soon as they issue a position statement, we will follow up with further advice. At the moment, as it stands, at this date, the only practitioners allowed to return to work are chiropractors and osteopaths. Also, very surprisingly, massage “parlours“ are allowed to reopen. (Obviously, we have great concerns about the wording used, and clearly the government needs to clarify exactly what they mean.). We hope this helps and we encourage you all to adhere to government guidelines at this point.
