Covid-19 update* from 5th January
The clinic is still open during the next national lockdown following the latest guidelines from the Government and the British Chiropractic Association. We have updated our covid-19 risk assessment policy to keep everyone safe during the treatment.
Not only is it legally permissible for Chiropractors to continue practicing it is important we continue to provide an essential service for:
- Those patients that are in pain and need to seek an appointment.
- Offering chiropractic services to key/essential workers, including those in the NHS.
- Reducing the musculoskeletal care burden on the NHS, particularly if patients are finding it hard to access these services due to the pandemic.
–Please download forms here …… print them fill them out and bring them in. (You may still fill them out in clinic but it limits your time spent in reception if you prefer).
-Please continue to wear you masks for appointments.
-Please sanitise your hands upon entry and leaving of the clinic.
-Please wear loose fitting vest tops and leggings or shorts for treatment so we do not have to provide treatment gowns for ladies.
