For Face2Face/video/phone assessment & follow up consultations

FURTHER UPDATE 05/01/2021
Current guidance suggests that we can carry out Face 2 Face Sessions through Lockdown dependent on personal vulnerability, individual circumstances, and patient wishes.
We have now been working safely in the Clinic since June 1st 2020. Our booking procedure has changed slightly now, in that we carry out a rigorous screening process via email prior to any potential face to face appointment. This is done to determine whether a face to face or remote consultation is appropriate in the current environment, in order to minimize risk to extremely vulnerable/vulnerable patient groups and indeed ourselves. In most cases to date it has been possible to carry out face to face sessions, but please be aware this is determined on the basis of each particular individual's life circumstances and personal wishes.
We are operating the clinic with no patient crossover. The receptionist sits behind a perspex screen in reception and controls through flow of people entering and leaving reception so that no crossover occurs. The reception area is also sanitised whenever someone comes in or out of the front door. In the treatment rooms, social distancing is maintained when not examining or treating, time in clinic is reduced by submitting preconsult assessment forms via email (where possible), aprons, masks, face screen and gloves are worn by the Physiotherapist, and a face mask must be worn by the patient. All surfaces are wipeable, full clean down of all touched surfaces after each patient visit, sanitising gel everywhere! No waiting room, patients allowed in the Clinic only at their allotted time of appointment and taken directly into the treatment room after having their temperature taken. Payment is contactless (where possible) and patient records are now being computerised.
If you have any questions about our service, if you require our Physiotherapy Services or if you have an appointment and would like to discuss the best way to proceed please call us on:
