CLINIC NOW OPEN & TREATMENTS FREE FOR OCTOBER
We are pleased to announce we are back open for business and taking FREE appointments for 5 October onwards - please read the following information for how our service will differ.
To ensure that we can continue to provide our services whilst minimising Covid associated risks, we have made a few changes to the way we operate, which reflect the continually evolving guidelines as stipulated by the government and our governing bodies.
All patients must book a FREE online triage in order to be offered a face to face appointment.
This is a videocall which provides us with an opportunity to safely screen our patients and determine suitability for a face to face appointment. We have had a lot of success with our remote conusltations over the last six months with a variety of injuries, however we appreciate that remote care is not suitable for everyone. During the traige we are able to learn more about you and your injury/condition so that if offered a face to face, we can ensure the session is as productive and safe as possible by outlining a treatment plan in advance.
Your recovery is important to us, and so should you wish to engage in the service, we can ensure your recovery period is as short as possible.
Face to face appointment
If you are offered a face to face appointment during your online triage, you will be offered an appointment in one weeks time, this means that we can maintain patient-therapist continuity. Each of our student therapists have one day a week each in which they are available for clinic appointments.
We will be offering sports massage appointments, these are approximately 30 minutes, however we will need you to follow our online triage service for us to offer you a face to face appointment.
We will continue to offer our remote injury conusltations and follow-ups which includes a personalised home-based rehabilitation plan.
We appreciate that online triage may be difficult for some of our patients, should you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesistate to get in touch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone 01752 636836.
