It is with great relief that we welcome the easing of the lockdowns, however for the time being we deem it safest to keep our strict covid-secure measures in place. As Allied Health Professionals we are aware of our obligation to continue to provide our services as long as it is deemed safe for our patients and staff. We will continue to review the guidance from central government, Public Health England (PHE) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), as well as our regulator and Chiropractic professional bodies. At present our stringent hygiene and covid-secure guidelines remain in place.
If you have not been back to the clinic since March 2020, you will notice some differences. We have carried out a thorough risk assessment and have made some important changes to ensure your safety and our chiropractors' safety. These include:
- ethically sourced PPE for our chiropractors
- changing our diary system and waiting facilities so that social distancing can be maintained until the actual hands-on care is initiated
- cleaning touch points/surfaces between patients
- encouraging contactless payments
We will continue to offer our Telehealth services which include diagnosis and advice over the phone and through virtual web-based consultations. These have been very popular and will continue to be provided. We are always at the end of the phone and are very happy to support you with our help and advice.
Simon and Katriona
