As a Primary Health Care clinic we have been given guidance allowing us to begin clinical practice for acute patients where care is required to relieve pain or where daily activities are limited.
We are following all scientific advice from Public Health England and The British Chiropractic Association to ensure both our patients and clinic team are kept safe and can benefit from our care.
This also means we can help reduce musculoskeletal pain presentations at GP surgeries who are already working very hard.
In view of this, we wanted to share the measures we are currently taking whilst running a restricted clinic service in accordance with current legislation:
There will only be one Chiropractor in the building at any one time. This reduces the number of people in the clinic and allows social distancing to be maintained as far as possible.
Initially we will be seeing patients with acute conditions where care is needed to relieve pain or because daily activities are limited.
Each patient who enters the building is promptly directed to the treatment room (no waiting area available). Please arrive on time. This means a patient will only ever have contact with the Chiropractor – nobody else.
PPE equipment is worn by the Chiropractor. You are welcome to wear PPE also but this is not mandatory.
Prior to your appointment you will be sent an electronic COVID-19 consent form with your appointment confirmation email. This screens out at risk patients, patients who may have shown symptoms or who may have been in contact with others who show symptoms.
Contactless payment systems are in place.
Thank you for your understanding, we appreciate your patience and adaptability to these new changes that will benefit everybody. We will continue to stay up to date with any changes in guidance and update our policies accordingly.
