Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic Policy Coronavirus (COVID-19)  Updated 24.03.2020

 

Dear Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic Patients

As I’m sure you know, all the staff at the Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic are proud to treat you and grateful that you entrust us with your care.  

However, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, we will no long be providing any face to face appointments within the clinic.  This is a temporary measure based on advice today from the British Chiropractic Association and the government. By acting together as a community I’m sure we can minimise the impact this virus may have on us all.

For patients who have maintenance appointments scheduled, you will hear from our receptionists shortly.  You are also welcome to contact reception if you wish to discuss rearranging your appointment.

If you are in acute pain, please still ring the practice on 01245 353078 where a chiropractor will triage your call.

I will also be on the phone during this entire period to offer any advice you may require and can organise telephone / Facetime / WhatsApp one-2-one appointments when required.  Please be patient and allow 24 hours, as of Monday 30th March I alone will be making appointments and phoning patients back to triage.

Please rest assured we will keep you regularly updated and Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic will be fully up and running again as soon as possible. Take care of one another.

Kindest regards

Dicken Read MChiro DC MRCC

Clinic Director

GCC Registered Chiropractor

What we are doing at the Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic

You will be aware that the Coronavirus advice is updated on a daily basis and as a health clinic we feel it important that you know what measures we have taken to ensure that both patients and staff stay safe.

All of our staff are fully updated and we follow Local Infection Control Policies as a matter of course:

If you are a patient with any concerns about attending your appointment with us, please contact the clinic on 01245 353078 to discuss this. 

This is how you can help

Coronavirus

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Use NHS 111 online if you feel:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Should I still attend?

At this time the clinic hours resume as normal.

However, if you have a fever, cough and or respiratory symptoms, please contact the clinic to re-schedule your appointment. Please alert us if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 and have recently attended the clinic.

We would advice those patients who maybe:

to not attend the clinic and if you have an appointment to call the clinic and rearrange for 6 weeks time.  If you are over the age of 70 we would advise you phone the clinic and discuss with your practitioner whether you should still attend and this can be decided on an individual basis depending on your current condition. 

If you would like further information about stay at home advice and Do's and Don'ts we suggest you visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we are up to date and doing what we should to protect you.

Please be assured that we are keeping up to date with all developments and advice from both the Government and Public Health England and will continue to take the necessary precautions and continue to update this page when necessary. 

 

We would like to thank you for your cooperation at this unprecedented time.

 All the team at the Chelmsford Chiropractic Clinic
