As Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHP) we are able to remain open, even during a full lockdown. The reason for this is that we already have in place very stringent infection control protocols (click here for more details) and wear all of the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) set out in government guidelines.
As registered osteopaths, Lisa is considered a key worker. In addition to this, it has been confirmed that patients are permitted to travel to an osteopathic or medical appointment even during a lockdown.
We are remaining vigilant and screening people for coronavirus symptoms before they attend, and maintaining the very highest standards possible to help protect everyone. We are still wearing face masks but they are now optional for patients who are not displaying any signs or symptoms of Covid-19. Should you feel unwell before your appointment please contact us and do not come into clinic.
It is hoped that by supporting and treating local people with musculoskeletal conditions, we can in some small way, help reduce the burden on our already overstretched National Health Service (NHS) during these unprecedented times.
Remember to wash your hands regularly, wear a mask and observe the 2-metre social distancing rule whenever possible to help control the spread of the virus- “Hands, Face, Space – Fresh Air”.
