COVID 19 Implementations

Following advice from the British Chiropractic Association we are pleased to announce that we are NOW OPEN for new patients and existing patients. When you call to make an appointment you will be individually assessed to determine your suitability for a face to face appointment. We are currently adhering to all government guidelines as well as those set out by our governing body (General Chiropractic Council) and the British Chiropractic Association.

 

Some of the changes you can expect to see are:

Social Distancing

  • Protective screens have been installed around our reception desk. You can still come up to the desk and communicate freely with our team members.
  • All patients have been requested to attend on their own. Please ask our receptionist for further details.
  • Appointment times have been extended to allow for cleaning and to reduce the number of people in the clinic.
  • We have limited chairs in the waiting room and you will be guided to your own waiting area cubicle.
  • There is only one chiropractic working per shift.

Hand Hygiene

  • Alcohol hand sanitisation gel is provided at reception which we require everyone to use on entry to the clinic.

  • Please use contactless payments where possible to minimise surface contact. The contactless payment amount has increased. No cash is taken.
  • Reading material has been temporarily removed.
  • Please be prompt for your appointment (not too early please) so that we can minimise the number of people at reception.
