I am pleased to say we will be opening our clinic again from the 27th July, but with limited availability to begin with. We hope that this will change over the coming weeks and/or months as the country’s R number begins to fall, and the chances of catching Covid-19 whilst out in public reduce. The following page is designed to give you some information on how procedures in clinic have changed to ensure patient safety and also explain how we can help you in your recovery from Covid-19 if you have previously contracted it.
The honest answer to this that just like going to the shops, coming in to see us will carry a degree of risk. This is why we ask that if you are being asked to shield due to either being a carer of someone who is in the high risk category, or are a high risk category yourself that you consider booking in for an online consultation instead. We will be able to provide you with a working diagnosis and give you an exercise plan to help you with your pain and discomfort. This has proved to be successful during the lockdown period and it’s a service we will continue to provide even as lockdown is lifted.
You will have received a letter from your GP if you are in the high risk category, however if you are unsure and would like to check you can find out more here.
To book a video consultation or to just have a chat and find out more you can do so here under the Osteopathy heading.
For those that do not fall into this category and would like to come in for an appointment, then we want to make you aware that we are following strict hygiene and PPE protocols.
As one of the clinical care workers who is part of the NHS Track & Trace programme, I am up to date with all hygiene & PPE protocols that need to be in place in order for a clinic to safely carry out treatments. I will also be following all the guidelines set up for all primary healthcare practitioners. These include:
We’ve also changed our operating procedures in regards to payments. We are now asking all new patients to pay online prior to their appointment. This is to minimise the amount of contact on payment devices to as little possible. If you have Apple Pay or something similar this can be used when booking follow up appointments at the end of your session.
