To All of Our Patients

We hope you and your family are doing well at this time.

The last few weeks have been challenging for us all. We wanted to let you know that we have been agonising over what is the best decision for our patients, for our team and for our business.

In line with advice from the UK Government, and the General Osteopathic Council (our governing body), my clinic will be OPEN for the time being but this may change in the future and we will keep you informed of any changes. The UK government published new laws on 26th March 2020 that explicitly allows Osteopaths to continue to practice during this terrible pandemic. You can read this here.

Osteopaths are primary care practitioners and are considered an ‘essential service’ where we can help support people experiencing musculoskeletal pain and help keep patients away from hospital emergency departments and GP clinics who are being overwhelmed at the moment.

We want you to know that we are taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously and for that reason we are making some changes.

This virus is highly contagious so we want to minimise the risk to you and your families as much as possible when visiting our clinic.

We have added a few screening criteria that we need you to follow to keep you, our patients and us osteopaths as safe as possible!

Screening Criteria

The following criteria need to be met prior to you attending your appointment:

NO fever / temperature

NO sore throat / cough

NO shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

NO overseas travel in the last 14 days

NO contact with anyone who has tested positive

NO contact with anyone who has flu like symptoms

PLUS

You are following strict personal hygiene rules eg regular hand washing

Please use hand sanitiser or soap & water at the beginning and end of your consultation

We ask that you wait in your car or outside our main entrance to be called for your appointment

Please make sure that you are following the social distancing rules and self-isolation policies

NOTE: If you are unable to meet all of the above criteria please get in contact with us so we can reschedule your appointment or help answer any of your questions. We also have a new e-Consult service (video conferencing) which you can book here.

We have been doing everything possible in our clinic to reduce the risk of transmission.

We are asking patients to book and pay for their appointments online, enabling a streamlined consultation and minimising any unnecessary contact. Book here.

We have introduced e-Consult (video consultations) and other exciting health options to this space so we can help keep your health goals on track.
