Covid-19 update

I have taken a number of steps to ensure that the clinic will be as safe as possible for when you show up to your appointment. These steps include but are not limited to:

  • Touch points are cleaned regularly and hand sanitizer is extensively available throughout the practice.
  • Appointment times are staggered to assist with respectful social distancing.
  • I am allowing extra time between every appointment to provide enough time to thoroughly clean the room. A cleaning protocol has been devised.
  • We ask all patients to arrive at their appointment time and to either wait outside the building or in their car to avoid waiting in reception. I will call you when it is safe to enter the treatment room.
  • Each clinic room is thoroughly cleaned between appointments.
  • We have eliminated all unnecessary linens such as couch covers, gowns, rugs and door mats to ensure everything you touch is thoroughly cleaned or disposed of.
  • I will wear disposable PPE to prevent cross contamination between patients in line with the guidance from the Institute of Osteopathy. This will include an apron, face mask, gloves and possibly a face shield when necessary.
  • I am asking everyone to avoid the main clinic building if possible.
  • Bank transfer for payments is prefered at this moment in time. 
  • We request every patient bring a suitable face mask with them or one will be provded on arrival.
  • You are more than welcome to bring your own towel for modesty purposes during treatment.

Please expect a triage call the day before your appointment. The aim of this is to check for any signs or symptoms of covid – 19 so that I can ensure that it is safe for you to attend the clinic.

Please read the following to prepare you for your treatment and to assist with keeping the practice as ‘Covid Secure’ as possible 
• You will be contacted by telephone prior to your appointment by myself for compulsory screening.
• Please arrive at your allocated appointment time. 
• Please consider attending alone unless a chaperone or translator is specifically required, for example if under the age of 18 or to assist with mobility.
• Please try and avoid bringing unnecessary items into the clinic such as bags, shopping and coats etc (essential items for babies)
• You will be asked to pay via bank transfer if possible
• Please wear a mask to the practice, i have some if you require one and i will dispose of it following the guidelines set out for the disposal of PPE. 
• The clinician will already be in full PPE before the appointment. 
o Plastic Apron
o Gloves
o Surgical Mask (Minimum IIR)
o Possibly eye protection
• Unfortunately, the kitchen area will be unavailable at this moment in time so I will be unable to offer refreshments.
• Please inform the me if you or your contacts develop any Covid-19 symptoms between booking and your appointment, or within 72 hours of attending the clinic.
Please see my covid-19 consent form and risk assessment. The consent form will need to be signed on every visit.
