Covid-19 Update – 3rd November 2020


We Remain Open!

Following the latest Government announcement that England is going into a second lockdown from Thursday 5th November, we would like to reassure you that we will remain open throughout this time.

We will continue to follow UK Government guidelines which categorise Chiropractic as essential healthcare and which encourage patients to continue attending healthcare appointments.

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 procedures we are following to ensure we maintain the highest possible level of hygiene.

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 are operating a strict one in, one out policy. 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. 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 large towel for use on the bench. Avoid touching any surfaces when inside the clinic.

You will need to dress appropriately in thin, 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.

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.

Stay safe!

Best wishes

Sandy & Team
