Musculoskeletal aches and pains have not disappeared in 2020 and the clinic remains open to help you. Although the country has been placed into lockdown, chiropractors are able to continue treating patients whilst following rigorous risk assessment, however those aged over 60 or those in the clinically vulnerable category may wish to reschedule their appointment, or consider Telehealth alternatives. New patient appointments are currently being split to minimise face to face contact. History and a basic examination will take place over video call with treatment taking place at another time. 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 both you and me, as I am clinically vulnerable. 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.
I have decided to leave prices at £55 for the initial 1hr consultation and treatment and £35 for repeat 30 minute treatments despite the significant 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. Having said that 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 cost 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 a Covid assessment form in the 24 hours prior to each appointment.
