Updated 12.05.2020

Following new guidelines released by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA), the clinic can now open for urgent appointments.  Please contact the clinic on 01245 353078 to talk to a chiropractor or leave a message.

PROCEDURES FOR ATTENDING

Coronavirus

 

MEASURES IN PLACE

Health and safety of our patients and staff is always our top priority.  The clinic has put in place the following measures:

 

TELEHEALTH

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.  

 

SCREENING

If you are booked in for an urgent appointment, one of our team will telephone you 24 hours prior to your appointment to ask some screening questions related to COVID-19 and you and your family members degree of risk. 

 

SOCIAL DISTANCING

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.

 

PPE

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 a small fee, should you wish.  By all means bring your own if you have one. 

Coronavirus


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.  The practitioner will come and collect you from your car and walk you straight to the treatment room.

 

SANITISING STATION

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.

 

MAINTENANCE APPOINTMENTS

 In line with government advice, the BCA is recommending baby steps regarding reopening.  For now, face-face appointments will only be available for urgent cases.  If you have a maintenance appointment scheduled, please wait we will be in contact to reschedule it if necessary.

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 and would like advice, please still ring the practice on 01245 353078 where a chiropractor will return your call within 24 hours.

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
