Chiropractic During Covid-19

As a regulated health care worker, I will be remaining open during the second Lock-Down at both New Cross and Charlton clinics.

To enable me to do this I will be following Government infection control guidelines, including the use of PPE.

While from 5th November, people who are in the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable group should remain at home and postpone visits until after the lock-down period, it may be possible to see them if urgent, please see below.

The appointment procedure is as follows:-

Appointment Procedure

  • Complete an online Consent Form (link below)
  • Complete an online Risk Assessment Form (link below)
  • Any chaperone to complete Risk Assessment Form
  • New Patients to have Symptoms and History details taken remotely by completing an emailed form
  • Second Risk Assessment at clinic arrival with temperature taken
  • Arrival 1-2 minutes before appointment to avoid patient cross over (Reception area currently closed)
  • Patients to wear face masks
  • Practitioner wearing PPE
  • Treatment through clothes, patients wearing loose fitting garments (preferably not jeans)
  • Strict Cleaning Procedure before and after each patient visit
  • Unfortunately unless Consent and Risk Assessment Forms are completed or on arrival, the Risk criteria has changed/temperature is above 37.5 C, access to the clinic will be denied

Please call if you are unsure or would like to discuss things.
