COVID-19

New Clinic procedures 

Since then we have been consulting with the General Chiropractic Council, United Chiropractic Association and Gov.Uk and Public Health England, to establish the safest way to get back to seeing selected patients safely and legally.

We have now established that we are able to see selected patients who meet the following criteria only:

•   You have NOT had any cold or flu like symptoms such as cough, 
hoarseness, sore throat, headache, body aches and        fatigue/ drowsiness in the last 3 weeks

•   You have NOT had any unusual abdominal symptoms – loss of appetite, diarrhoea


•   You have NOT had a loss of smell or taste


•   You have NOT had exposure to a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19? ( e.g. 
someone in your household or          co-worker) 


•   You have NOT had anyone in your household poorly with possible COVID symptoms. 


•   You have NOT had laboratory exposure working directly with biological specimens that contain COVID-19


•   You are NOT a health-care worker or first responder having possible contact with COVID-19 patients


•   You are NOT in the at risk/ vulnerable groups identified in Government Guidelines

  • Pregnant

We can only see patients who are acute or have a new pain.

 

We are only able to see patients who are in acute pain, where the pain is affecting your activities of daily living or work.

Providing a safe environment of our patients

We are will be wearing PPE – disposable gloves, aprons and masks for every patient, with ongoing cleaning of the contact points and equipment between patients (as pre COVID-19).

             Therefore we will be following the following procedures.

  • Phoning patients with a triage questionnaire – voice call, email or online

  • Completing a triage questionnaire at the clinic

  • Spreading appointments out – meaning we cannot se as many patients in a day due to procedures, cleaning and wearing PPE which is very uncomfortable

  • Taking our temperature twice daily and your temperature before the appointment

  • You will need to wash your hands

  • All patients are asked to wear thin stretchy sports clothing rather than using gowns where possible (if we agree together that you need to wear a gown then one will always be provided)

  • All benches, equipment, door handles, chairs will be wiped down afterwards and used gloves and apron disposed of.

  • Only card payments will  be taken no cash

  • Follow up appointments will be made if the answers to the questions above are still NO.

  • The same procedure will happen for every appointment
