Essential face to face appointments

  • Before your face to face appointment

    To maintain your health, if your arbias worker is meeting with you face to face they will call you before your meeting to check that you are feeling healthy and able to go ahead with the appointment.

  • During your face to face appointment

    We will assess whether you are healthy and not experiencing COVID symptoms.

    We will continue to provide services consistent with best practice guidelines to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to ensure you receive the same high quality service and support. This means that during your appointment we will use physical distancing and personal protective equipment, such as face masks, where appropriate.
