Member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network
Mark Guggiari MBAcC, PgDip (Acu)
I completed my training at the Northern College of Acupuncture where I completed a 3 year Post Graduate Diploma in Acupuncture and obtained my membership of the British Acupuncture Council. I am a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network, having completed postgraduate training granting eligibility.
As well as running my own acupuncture clinics I provide acupuncture at the Hewitt Fertility Centre in Knutsford, part of the Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
I see patients for all general ailments and often combine with Tui Na, the Traditional Chinese medical massage.
Notice of Covid guidelines from 19th July 2021
Whilst face masks are no longer a legal requirement, COVID-19 is considered a workplace hazard and as such I am expected to continue to put in place measures to prevent its spread as part of risk management in the clinic. Public Health England have stated that they expect patients, visitors and staff to continue to wear masks in all healthcare and clinical settings.
Consequently, I request patients continue to wear face coverings in clinic (unless you are medically exempt). I will continue to wear a face mask with visor or goggles, plus plastic apron to keep you (and me) safe.
I will review this requirement monthly, taking guidance from my professional body. Acupuncture is a close contact service, patients are often vulnerable to the impact of Covid 19 and this is the appropriate way to safeguard everyone’s health.
If you prefer not to wear a face covering in clinic, please delay your appointment until guidance and my risk assessment permits this.
Vaccination status - double jabbed
On the advice of the BAcC insurers and for the sake of transparency to existing and potential patients I confirm that I have received two Covid 19 vaccinations.
NHS Test and Trace
Please note that I continue to be required to collect and keep a limited record of staff, patients and visitors who come to my clinic for the purpose of contact tracing.
Please note; if you do not wish to have your details passed to NHS Test and Trace then the best option is to delay your decision to have acupuncture until this requirement is withdrawn.
