We would like to thank you for your continued patience during the pandemic.
The clinic continues to be able to see patients on a face-face basis. We regularly risk assess and implement new procedures and closely monitor guidance from the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and the government to provide a safe environment for patients and staff.
Clinically extremely vulnerable:
We would currently recommend patients that are clinically extremely vulnerable and have received a shielding letter to contact the clinic for a telephone appointment. If it is then deemed essential for you to come in for a face-to-face appointment this can be arranged.
If you would now like to schedule an appointment please contact the clinic on 01245 353078.
Alternatively email us at email@example.com.
Please inform the Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic prior to attending on 01245 353078, if you have experienced:
Health and safety of our patients and staff is always our top priority. The clinic has put in place the following measures:
It may be deemed more suitable for you to have a teleheath appointment if for example, you are shielded / high risk, live with someone who is shielded/high risk or you are self-isolating. If you are in pain one of our clinic’s chiropractors will telephone you with advice, exercises and to discuss the best course of action regarding treatment. If a face-face appointment is deemed appropriate, we will schedule an appointment for treatment.
Before booking you in for an appointment, one of our team will telephone you prior to your appointment to ask some screening questions related to COVID-19 and you and your family members degree of risk. You will receive a text reminder 24 hours prior to your appointment reminding you to inform the clinic if your COVID-19 status has changed. Finally your practitioner will ask screening questions again when you enter the clinic.
The clinic may look a little different to normal when you attend. We have put measures in place to maintain the government advised 2m social distancing.
Our practitioners will also look a little different. We will be wearing all the recommended PPE that has been suggested by Public Health England. You also have the opportunity to purchase a mask as you enter the clinic for £1, should you wish. By all means bring your own if you have one.
TRAVEL THROUGH CLINIC
Sadly you will no longer be able to take a moment and read a magazine or enjoy a drink in the reception area. You are now welcome to enter the clinic no more than 5 minutes prior to your appoinment. Please make sure that you sanitise your hands with the automatic machine at the entrance and then take a seat. If there are no seats available when you come in, then we ask for you to wait in your car and your practitioner will come and collect you.
You will be asked to use the antibacterial gel supplied when you arrive. Please take a moment to sanitise your hands. The practitioner may also take your temperature at this point with a non-contact thermometer.
The clinic has now been given the go-ahead by the BCA and GCC to treat routine and maintenance patients. Please call reception on 01245 353078 to arrange an appointment.
