Please note we will update this page regularly in line with the latest government and health advice.
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19 we want to reassure our patients that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of both our patients and staff during this time. Following instructions from the Royal College of Chiropractors and our statutory regulator, the General Chiropractic Council, we have to postpone all face to face appointments and hands-on treatment until Monday 13 April. We are individually contacting all patients with appointments within this time frame to discuss their care.
We are however, continuing to maintain a service for urgent and emergency cases either by phone or, if you have access to a computer, by video link through our Jane patient management software. We have also successfully conducted appointments via FaceTime.
Although it goes against all our natural instincts not to be offering appointments to emergency cases and key workers, it is impossible to do so safely in the current circumstances and the health our patients and staff must come first. Having conducted several 'remote' appointments already for both new and existing patients, we are delighted how much it is still possible to do including history, testing and diagnosis and how many resources we have access to for exercises, modalities, posture, ergonomics and tons of home based help, particularly patients have access to a helping pair of hands from any co-inhabitants.
By next week, all of our chiropractors will be able to offer video appointments between 10am - 3pm on weekdays and we are hoping to be able to extend the service for counselling and Alexander Technique appointments.
To speak to us, phone the usual clinic numbers: answer phone messages outside of working hours are being monitored regularly.
