We are pleased to announce that we will be reopening the clinic on Monday 29th June 2020 following a period of closure due to Covid-19. We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can confidently provide people with safe and high quality osteopathic treatment, whilst mitigating the risks of Coronavirus.
Things will be a bit different
Like every organisation, we have had to adapt to continue to safely provide a much needed service. The most obvious change you will notice is me sporting PPE (personal protective equipment). Patients will also be asked to bring their own mask.
Although this may all feel a bit daunting to begin with, we need to remember that we are still the same friendly faces underneath. Face masks are necessary for the time being to mitigate the risk of Coronavirus transmission to ourselves and others.
Below are the main changes we are making to ensure everyone is kept as safe as possible. They are all in line with best practice guidelines from Public Health England, The General Osteopathic Council and Institute of Osteopathy.
- UPDATE: I have had my Covid vaccinations and test regularly for Covid-19.
- Patients will be screened before every appointment for Coronavirus symptoms.
- I will be self-monitoring for symptoms.
- I will be wearing PPE as per PHE guidelines. Patients will also be required to wear a face mask. Face masks are still required in healthcare settings since restrictions eased in Feb 2022
- I will be washing my hands regularly and there will be hand sanitiser available.
- We will be spacing appointments to allow time to clean and ventilate the room.
