I hope this letter finds you well.
As the UK is beginning to emerge from lockdown, the osteopathic profession has been granted permission to carry out its duty of care for its patients. We are now able to provide hands on treatment if we deem it necessary. Following a thorough risk assessment for Covid-19 transmission in the clinic we’ve taken numerous steps to ensure we minimise the risk of transmission.
The services have changed a little as we currently will be taking bookings for a limited amount of face to face appointments. The reception area and treatment rooms have been “de cluttered” to ensure cleanliness.
Appointment bookings will be made online via my website or by getting in touch with me:
Phone: 07804 254 299.
Online payment are made easy using the online booking system or Bacs.
To ensure minimum risk for patients and ourselves, and I will ring you prior to your appointment to assess your risk of Covid-19 infection. In some cases we may suggest a telehealth consultation.
Minimising the risk of infection
As you arrive promptly to your appointment please wait by the entrance and I will greet you at the door, wearing PPE. Please do not ring the doorbell.
I will be wearing a surgical grade mask and apron at all times.
As a control measure, all linen has been removed from the treatment table, all surfaces have been made easier to clean, there are wipeable pillows, and the treatment room is now cleaned before and after each treatment with an allocation of 20min in between for ventilation. All usable surfaces like doors and switches are regularly sanitised with hospital-grade disinfectant.
When two practitioners are working in the clinic, appointments will be organised to avoid patients overlap in and out of the clinic as much as possible and measures put in place using the stairs to allow safe distances to pass through the corridor.
As some of the lockdown restrictions start to ease, we find our working life has changed. These differences however will not affect what is important about what is achievable from my treatments and my focus remains on your safety and that of our community.
I look forward to welcoming and treating you again in this next phase.
