Important update regarding COVID-19 Coronavirus

Are you a key worker?

Do you have an urgent issue?

From Monday 18th May we are able to offer face to face appointments for patients in these categories as a first phase of reopening.

 

If you are, and you're in need of an appointment please call or email us about making an appointment

 

We have been working hard here at Greenwich Chiropractic and Physiotherapy clinic to do everything we can to support our existing patients and over deliver to the community during the shut down period, we hope you've benefited from some of our social media and video advice.

Thanks very much for the great feedback we've been getting on the Virtual Consultations which has surprised even us how much we've been able to help remotely.

This week our governing bodies and Public Health England have encouraged private health clinics to begin offering face to face appointments if possible within 'Covid-19 secure' conditions which is great news!

 

We've undergone a thorough Risk Assessment and strict protocols are in place for the safety of patients and staff.

Just some of the measures we've put in place to ensure a safe environment are:

  • Modified advice for entering and leaving the building when attending an appointment.
  • Secondary waiting area to aid social distancing.
  • Additional PPE availability for staff.
  • Removal of items that may harbour infectious particles from treatment rooms and reception.
  • Staff training in steralisation, clean down and donning and doffing PPE.

 

At this stage we are only able to offer Chiropractic and Physiotherapy appointments, we hope that Massage Therapy will be possible in the near future.

At the moment we're following the 'Virtual First' protocols from governing bodies

As stated above we've had great results with remote Virtual Appointments and at this time this should still be considered as the first option.

We understand the injuries and pain will continue to present themselves, some even more likely with the work and lifestyle changes imposed. We are here to help so contact us for any advice needed in the event of the onset of acute musculoskeletal pain to ease the burden on GPs and most importantly A&E.

Please continue to follow the previous policy on cancelling appointments should you experience COVID-19 symptoms, refer to the NHS website for updates.
