For Face2Face assessment & follow up consultations

FURTHER UPDATE 31/08/2021
PLEASE SEE APPOINTMENTS TAB FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
Current guidance suggests that we can carry out Face 2 Face Sessions 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 screening process via email prior to a face to face appointment. We also encourage patients to take a lateral flow test within 24 hours of attending. This is done to ensure, as best we can, that patients attending the clinic are COVID free.
We are now starting to gradually use the waiting area. We are allowing 2 patients maximum in the waiting room at one time, which allows us to speed up the through flow of patients, allowing more patients to be seen and the waiting list to be reduced. The receptionist sits behind a perspex screen in reception and controls through flow of people entering and leaving reception. The reception area is also sanitised as frequently as possible. Not possible to clean in between every patient now when patients are in the waiting area too. However, if someone wishes to take a wipe to use when leaving they may do so. 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, and gloves are still 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! 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:

WHERE POSSBLE WE WOULD PREFER YOU TO CALL US TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT RATHER THAN ATTENDING THE CLINIC. YOUR HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED IN THIS MATTER.
We are all in this together.
