Covid-19

We are still open for the provision of Osteopathic treatment for those who are in pain and distress, but we do not have appointments for Acupuncture and Remedial Massage.   In light of the current Covid-19 outbreak we have implemented a number of important steps to ensure a safe environment at our clinic. Our priority is to provide safeguards for all our patients, practitioners and staff whilst continuing to provide treatment, support and continuity of care for all those in need. We are happy to support and advise patients by phone who have conditions that potentially make them vulnerable to infection so that they do not have to attend the clinic.

We are constantly monitoring the official guidance for Health Care Professionals from The Department of Health and Social Care and other agencies including Public Health England.

We are currently taking the following steps:

We are asking all patients who have a any signs of illness especially a sore throat, cough or flu-like symptoms or a loss of sense of taste or smell to stay away from the Clinic but to please call us if they have any questions or concerns – we are here to help.

On arrival at the clinic all patients, staff and visitors are being screened and we are taking everybody’s temperature using a non-contact thermal thermometer.

All persons entering the building are being required to sanitise their hands with sanitizer provided.

All treatment tables and pillows have disposable paper sheeting and are fitted with plastic covers which are sprayed down with anti-viral agents after each appointment. We have also increased the frequency and thoroughness of cleaning hard surfaces and door handles etc. with anti-viral wipes several times a day..

We are also introducing measures to enable increased “social distancing”. We are also asking that patients try where possible to avoid bringing friends or family to their appointment and that you do not arrive too early for your appointment.  You may wish to stay in your car and have us call you when your practitioner is ready for you – just let us know you have arrived.

In this way we are confident that all possible steps are being taken to protect you and enable you to continue to receive treatment and care.  This is anxious time for all so if you have concerns please know that we are here to help in any way we can. We have spent 40 years serving our local community and will continue to do so.
