Great News!

We are delighted that we are now back open for all appointments!  This is following updated guidance from the British Chiropractic Association and in line with the latest Government guidelines.  Please note we are operating slightly reduced hours so please be patient if you are unable to contact us straight away.

We would like to thank everyone for their support and patience whilst the clinic has been closed and appreciate this has been a difficult time for all concerned.

Due to all the new guidelines in place, we have had to make changes within the clinic and with the way we operate in the future.  Maintaining the safety of our patients and staff is our main priority and please remember that social distancing rules are still in force.  The information below and attached poster (COVID19 procedures poster) give more detail about the changes we have made.

Hand sanitising products will be available to use before you enter and whilst in the clinic.  The chiropractor will be wearing PPE, which may include gloves, apron and a mask, during your consultation/treatment and we have installed screens at the reception desk to minimise the contact between staff and patients.

We will be operating a strict one in, one out policy for the time being. The treatment room has to be sanitised after each patient and therefore appointment times will be slightly staggered to allow for this.  Please do not arrive early for your appointment and wait in your car if necessary.  When you arrive, please ring the doorbell and wait for the chiropractor to answer the door.   Only  enter the building if you have an appointment. If you need an appointment please call to book, as we cannot accept drop-ins at the current time.

Payment will be requested at the time of booking to reduce the need to handle money in clinic and reduce contact with staff.  However, if necessary, any payments made in the clinic need to be made by card (contactless where possible) as we will not accept cash.

We ask that you wear a mask or face covering for your appointment and bring your own towel for use on the bench.  Avoid touching any surfaces when inside the clinic.

You will need to dress appropriately in light loose clothing with no belts or buckles and preferably no logos on the back of t-shirts.  We will not be providing gowns but please bear in mind that it may still be necessary for you to undress for examination purposes.

Please leave all accessories (handbag, watch, jewellery etc) at home or in your car and do not bring anyone (family or friends) to your appointment unless you require a chaperone.

As you can imagine, we are still trying to adjust to all the new guidelines and therefore will be running a slightly restricted service for a while.  Clinic hours and reception cover may be reduced so please bear with us if you can’t get hold of us for any reason.  Please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as we can.

Whilst every effort has been made to minimise risk with face to face consultations, please be aware that the risk has not been eradicated completely.

If you, or a member of your household, have symptoms of Covid-19 or you have been in contact with somebody with Covid symptoms then please do not enter the building.

We really look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes

Sandy & Team
