As a registered healthcare provider we are permitted to remain open during the lockdown, and patients are advised to continue with their scheduled appointments and any urgent care they may need so long as they are well. We continue to treat patients in the clinic, as well as offering online appointments where necessary.
We have a range of safety protocols in place to help keep everyone safe and will continue to monitor advice from the government and the General Chiropractic Council. Before you arrive, you will receive an email telling you a bit more about these safety protocols, and a COVID-19 declaration form for you to confirm you are not displaying any COVID-19 symptoms and have not come into contact with someone who has contracted the virus.
We ask that you wait in your vehicle in our car park and your chiropractor will collect you at the time of your appointment. When you come into the clinic for your appointment, you will have your temperature taken and be asked to wear a mask. Hand sanitiser must be used on entry to and exit from the clinic. Your practitioner will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for your appointment. This includes an apron, mask and gloves. Treatment rooms will be disinfected and aired between patients.
Any questions or concerns you have, or if you are mask exempt, please do let us know.
