To all our patients,
After the Prime Ministers announcement of a new lock-down on the 4th of January we would like to let our patients know that Chiropractic and Osteopathic treatment remains available at the Belvedere Centre.
There are still significant changes as we continue with a ‘new normal’. As you will be aware social distancing will in part be impossible to maintain at all times due to the nature of manual therapy. We aim to limit close contact as much as possible and will follow all relevant guidance in accordance with Government and Public Health England regarding appropriate PPE. At times there may not be reception staff so please leave an answer phone message or email if you would like to attend the practice and we will contact you as soon as possible. If you contact us via email please could you provide a contact telephone number so we can perform the first triage process at the same time as making an appointment.
PRECAUTIONS THAT THE BELVEDERE CENTRE HAS IN PLACE:
- All patients contacting us for an appointment are triaged by a member of our team over the telephone to establish their status (asymptomatic / symptomatic / self-isolating / living with someone symptomatic or self-isolating / have been in contact with anyone symptomatic).
- Only people in the asymptomatic category can attend the practice. Only those with an arranged appointment can enter the practice unless under 16 or you require a chaperone.
- All patients are required to wear a face covering before entering the practice, unless for medical exemption.
- Hand washing facilities or use of hand sanitiser will be available on entering the practice.
- A second triage is conducted at the practice by a team member. Which includes a temperature check on arrival.
- A strict cleaning, sanitation and infection control protocol is adhered to. Including work surfaces, door handles, card machine and other contact surfaces. Treatment benches and equipment are cleaned after each patient.
- All team members at The Belvedere Centre follow government social distancing guidance where possible.
- Currently we will not be using the waiting room as you will be greeted at the door. There will be adequate time allowance between each patient to limit the number of people in the clinic at any one time.
We will endeavour, under the circumstances, to provide the best support we can for our patients. Thank you for your patience during these challenging times.
We wish you the very best and hope you all stay safe and well.
