We hope you are all keeping well and healthy during this difficult time.
We take your health and that of any visitors and staff at the clinic very seriously so we have implemented some changes within the clinic so that we can provide you, our patients, face to face
care within government guidelines and keep both our team and you as safe as possible.
We can offer chiropractic appointments to patients who are struggling with acute pain (pain which is affecting your daily activities & not being controlled by medication). We are following very strict social distancing, enhanced hygiene & PPE procedures. Our way of working will be different to normal and we will ask you to sign a consent form.
Any patient presenting for an appointment who clearly demonstrates symptoms, which could be associated to Covid‐19, will be asked to postpone their appointment and leave the clinic.
We will start with a telephone consultation and Risk assessment after which we may then offer you a face to face treatment
*Please be aware that there may be no receptionist when you come to the clinic.
There will only be one Chiropractor
We will be open from ************June for emergency appointments
Please contact us by phone between 9am & 12pm only Mon- Fri
WHAT WE REQUEST OF YOU
Please inform us if anyone in your household has exhibited the signs of Covid‐19.
Practice social distancing while in our office. Follow the movement directions made to you by your Chiropractor.
Follow the hand washing instruction with thorough 20 second scrubbing before rinsing off.
Do not touch your face.
Wear comfortable loose clothing to facilitate the Chiropractors examination and treatment.
Be prompt for your appointment but not excessively early. We are social distancing in the appointment book and are doing our utmost to separate patients by a realistic margin. We will ask you to wait in your car or outside until your appointment time.
Leave accompanying family members in the car unless you need assistance.
Feel free to wear a PPE mask to the Clinic. Your Chiropractor will discuss with you the benefit or detriment of wearing the mask during a treatment.
If you do not have these we can supply you with one.
Do not hesitate to ask your Chiropractor about tips for helping keep you and your family as healthy as possible during this pandemic.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
+ To enable social distancing we will be limiting the number of patients in the clinic to 2 at a time.

+ The Chiropractors will wear a mask and a new pair of latex gloves for each patient
+ You will be required to wash your hands and then to use hand sanitiser before treatment.

+ The head/face area of the treatment couch will be covered with wide paper roll in addition to the regular face paper.
+ All staff will be wearing PPE .
+ We have removed all literature from the reception area.
+ We have had the clinic completely deep cleaned and the new cleaning policies that we introduced in March, (on top of our normal hygiene routine), continue, along with some new procedures
(including UV light sterilisation of the rooms )
+ We prefer contactless payment if possible and the credit card machine and all used surfaces will be regularly sanitised.
+ Every patient phoning for an appointment is given these guidelines plus the above protocols for paying.

British Chiropractic Association & Government guidelines to incl sanitising training and see that
