Musculoskeletal aches and pains have not disappeared in 2021 and the clinic remains open to help you, however I'm afraid I have had to temporarily stop taking on new patients so that I can fit in my existing ones, due to increased time allocation between appointments.
Treatments take place in a dedicated space which has been designed with infection control in mind. The flooring has an anti-microbial and fungicidal coating and the wall paint is also anti-microbial. I continue to wear full PPE, run an air purifier with HEPA and UV filtration, disinfect and fog the treatment space, check all patients at the door for temperature and administer hand sanitiser!
All patients will be required to wear a face covering. This is to protect you, me and all the other patients entering the building that day. Those who are medically exempt will need to discuss their exemption with me, as I am required to record a full medical history. In these cases please be aware that you may be offered a visor as an alternative or asked to consider Telehealth alternatives as per my risk assessment. Some have asked me whether the infection control procedures will start to relax as the country opens up again. Despite the changes of 19/7, at this time, I remain subject to PHE's PPE guidelines, which state that apron, mask, gloves and visor are required when treating patients within 2m distance. My statutory body, the GCC, advises that ALL infection control measures are to continue. This includes the wearing of masks by patients.
Prices as of April 6 2021 have risen slightly. The initial 1hr consultation (which includes history, examination AND treatment) will remain at £55 whilst for repeat 30 minute human / dog treatments prices will rise to £37.50 from £35. I'm doing my best to keep costs down despite the extra costs the clinic has incurred this year, as I recognise that financial stresses have been significant for many people during the pandemic and lockdown. I will ask you to pay for a mask if you choose to use one of mine rather than providing your own. This is at a price of £1 per mask. I have temporarily removed the ability to book online in order to be able to risk assess patients individually at point of booking. All patients will be asked to complete an online Covid assessment form in the 24 hours prior to each appointment.

The initial consultation is 1hour long and repeat appointments are 30 minutes, giving the time to explore both new and existing conditions without the need to rush.
