Congleton Osteopathic Practice is Open
Congleton Osteopathic Practice has now re-opened, working to slightly reduced hours as we match our capacity in phases to returning patient demand. We will increase our working hours and practitioner availability, as demand increases further.
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.
Lockdown has allowed us to conduct a thorough risk assessment against New Government guidelines and the Institute of Osteopathy’s Professional Standards for COVID-19. The outcome is 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.
Our new 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.
We will always endeavour to provide treatment or guidance/advice to relieve pain and discomfort. In a few very specific cases, we may offer you a practitioner consultation remotely, using Internet technology where available, rather than an on-site treatment. If so, this is to keep you safe and avoid any heightened transmission risk.
If you need to attend the practice with a chaperone or guardian, we will also contact you in advance to explain the process on arrival.
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), as there is no “waiting” in reception.
> If you arrive early, please wait outside (in your vehicle) until a few minutes before your appointment.
> On entering the practise please report to reception, where you will be asked to wash your hands.
> You will be taken to your treatment room where you will be met by your practitioner.
> 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 practise 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.
The changes we have made 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.
We commit to track, implement and follow guidance to keep you safe and keep you informed of changes as they happen. We will conduct a Risk Assessment monthly, incorporating changes as they are defined.
A signed copy of our COVID-19 Risk Assessment will be available at the practice, if you wish to review it.
