Sports / therapeutic massage appointments remain suspended in accordance with legislation. However, physiotherapy appointments have resumed, but with new stringent guidelines in place. Please call for more information, or to discuss any issues, on 01443 225471. Please note, “drop ins” at the clinic are not permitted at this time. Best Wishes from all of us at CliniKind.
In accordance with government guidance and on advice from our chartered society, this clinic will no longer be offering routine face to face appointments for non-acute conditions in the following weeks. However, our role will be in the following capacity:
-to offer free phone or face time consultations to help and support anyone in managing their conditions and pain independently, offering sound advice and talking through any concerns you may have.
-for those who feel that their level of concern would warrant a referral or if you feel that you would normally attend A&E or GP services for a non life threatening musculoskeletal / orthopaedic condition, we will provide an in person appointment, whilst making every effort to minimise risk, in order to support our local healthcare services.
-rehabilitation will prioritise those who have had recent surgery, fractures or those with acute or complex needs, including carers, with a focus on enabling self management.
-in addition, any vulnerable patient who is having concerns about getting the provisions they need, such as food, we will help in any capacity that we can.
-finally, for all our patients.... staying well isn't just physical and we will be missing our chats with you!!!! So if you fancy calling just to catch up, we would love to hear from you and you will be helping us too during this time of social distancing!!!!
Best wishes and we will see you soon!
Catherine and Christine.
We like to inform our patients that the clinic is still open, however, we need to alter the way we work to follow guidelines;
•Appointment times will be spread so that we only have one patient in at a time and with a gap, to make sure we can disinfect the area between appointments.
•Therefore we would greatly appreciate if appointment times could be closely adhered to, neither arriving too late or too early and if patients, where possible, can attend alone. We understand that not everyone can do this as some require assistance. •Please cancel your appointment and do not attend if you or anyone you have been in contact with have any symptoms. We want you to put your well-being first. •If you are unable to attend, but need help, whether you are a current patient or not, please call us and we will advise you on how you can self-manage your problem at home, this will not be charged for, we want to support the public as much as we can and reduce the pressure on public services. •Please practice the following advice and all other guidance, as advised by the Government (as below).
•Finally, we will see all our patients who can’t attend now, when this situation has improved and we look forward to seeing you then!
