Brierley Hill Osteopath

Covid-19 Procedures

I am Triple Vaccinated and perform Lateral Flow Tests twice a week.

I am allowing 15 minutes between patients (Pts) in order to ventilate the treatment room and disinfect the “Pt Journey”.

Please WAIT IN YOUR CAR on our drive  until your appointment time. We are NOT offering a waiting area. If I’m ready early I will come & collect you.

Despite the Government removing the mandatory requirement to wear face coverings in England, NHS England still require the use of face coverings/masks in Health Care Settings. This includes Osteopaths.

So please WEAR A FACE COVERING & use the available hand sanitiser. I have installed two Sneeze Screens. I will be wearing PPE.

I will NOT be providing a towel to cover you during your treatment. So please choose one or all from below

  • Wear loose leggings/tracksuit bottoms/shorts (for low back pain), or
  • Bring your own medium clean towel in a plastic bag, or
  • I can cover you with couch roll.

Please ask your companions, e.g. driver, to stay in the car. Avoid bringing your children (unless they are to be treated). If you need someone in the treatment room with you, please call me for advice.

I will also be opening the windows for 15 mins between Pts for ventilation. I have a heater to quickly warm the room if needed.

Please DO NOT ATTEND, but rearrange your appointment, if

  • You have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 7 days,
  • You have Covid-19 symptoms (new continuous cough, fever, a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • You are not vaccinated and a household member have tested positive or have symptoms within the last 10 days,
  • The Contact Tracing Team have told you to Isolate within the last 10 days.

If  you, or someone you live with, is Shielding then please call for Advice.
