I am thrilled to announce that we are still able to see patients for face to face treatment, at all stages of lockdown. This is because physiotherapy is deemed to be an essential service. Following following strict guidelines from the Government, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and Public Health England, we continue to treat patients both in clinic and at their homes.
We are adhering to strict guidelines, including wearing full PPE including a mask, visor, gloves and apron for each patient. We are also allowing extra time between patients in order to clean and ventilate the room and clean all equipment and surfaces thoroughly.
We are asking all patients who attend clinic to kindly wear a facemask for their appointment. All clinical staff have lateral flow Covid-19 tests twice weekly for an extra level of caution.
We continue to offer video consultations and appointments via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime for those patients who would prefer to continue physiotherapy treatment online.
We hope that everyone looks after themselves and stays safe during this very unsettled time.
