In connection with Covid 19 (coronavirus) SEBC advises consultations in person as Government advice allows and in accordance with the guidance circulated to all Registered Consultants on returning to work.
Returning to Work
SEBC’s position is that when Government guidelines allow, Registered Consultants should be able to return to work seeing cases under certain conditions.
These conditions are where advice via telephone and video is insufficient and where there are safety and welfare concerns for horse and handler or others, as is often the case with a behaviour problem. Where these conditions apply, the Society deems it ethical and appropriate for Registered Consultants to resume consultations in person, should they wish to do so and providing this can be done within Government guidelines in place at any time.
Detailed guidance on safe working practices in respect of Covid 19 has been circulated to all SEBC Registered Consultants and can be made available to anyone who wishes by contacting the Society (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calling 01899 221 888.
We have also extended our free helpline (for help with behaviour problems) to cover advice on all aspects of horse care and safety around horses at this time. Call 01899 221 888 where, if we cannot answer straight away, you can leave your details for a call back, and we will do our best to assist you.
