We are now well practised in our COVID-19 way of working, following Government guidelines and the Institute of Osteopathy’s Professional Standards for COVID-19. We are pleased to confirm Zero reported instances of transmission of COVID-19, through the practice, since we re-opened in early May 2020.
As from Monday 19th July you will still need to wear a face covering and bring a towel to your appointment.
To arrange an appointment, please use the Contact feature on this website, or ring the practice tel number direct. Please leave a message. A practitioner or receptionist will call you back at the earliest opportunity
We have incorporated a series of changes to our traditional way of working, providing you with the same quality of care you have become accustomed to, but allowing us to mitigate any risk of COVID-19 transmission, by complying with Social Distancing measures and the need to Deep Cleanse between each patient’s treatment.
Covid way of working requires us to screen patients in advance to identify High Risk Factors. If we identify specific risks that makes treating potentially more “vulnerable” patients a higher risk, we will contact you** to discuss your condition and needs in advance.
If you need to attend the practice with a chaperone or guardian, this is allowed as long as they are in the room with you, if not, they must wait for you outside the practice.
If you attend the practice with a friend or relative, perhaps for moral support or to aid your mobility, we will ask them to remain outside the practice, until your appointment is concluded.
On the day of your appointment:
> Please turn up on time (call ahead if you are delayed), we are now allowing 2 people to wait in the reception as from 19 July 2021, masks must be worn at all times.
> If you arrive early, please wait outside (in your vehicle) until a few minutes before your appointment.
> On entering the practice please report to reception, where you will be asked to wash your hands with an anti-bacterial soap.
> You will be asked to confirm you are aware of the risks associated with COVID-19 transmission.
> Following treatment, you will return to reception and make payment (preferably by bank card - contactless or Pin).
Before, during or following your treatment, if you have any questions or concerns please ask the practice manager, your receptionist or your practitioner. They will be happy to answer your question(s) or refer them to the practice principal.
Following your treatment:
If within 3 days of your appointment you experience any of the defined symptoms of COVID-19, please contact the practice so we can inform your practitioner and arrange their isolation and testing to avoid any risk of involuntary onward transmission of COVID-19.
These changes are designed to keep you and our staff safe - please help us to help you, by working with us collaboratively. We greatly appreciate your loyalty during these challenging times and want to continue to provide for your wellbeing.
Recent changes keep us aligned with Government requirements and Professional standards defined by the Institute of Osteopathy. These may change from time to time as our knowledge builds and our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic matures.
As stated previously, we continue to conduct a monthly Risk Assessment, taking official advice and incorporating changes to our way of working, as necessary. We commit to track, implement and follow guidance to keep you safe and keep you informed of changes as they happen.
A signed copy of our COVID-19 Risk Assessment will be available at the practice, if you wish to review it.
