Safety Procedures

Please be assured that your well being and safety is of the highest importance to this practice. To reassure you I wish to advise you of  the following procedures, which have been put in place to try to ensure this. 


Covid-19 is a respiratory infection, transmitted by droplet contact with mucosa of mouth, nose and eyes. Currently we are not aware of any risk of skin to skin spread.


If you, or members of your household, have had any symptoms you should self-isolate as directed and consider the safety of the Osteopath and other patients by not attending the clinic. Please telephone me to discuss any concerns you may have, I will be very happy to advise.


  • There will be gaps of 30 minutes between each appointment to allow airbourne particles to settle

  • Sanitizing of all surfaces will be carried out between every patient

  • Paper couch cover and wipeable pillows will be used

  • I will be wearing appropriate PPE

  • The room will be ventilated

  • Your temperature will be checked on arrival and if high you will be advised to return home.

Ways you can help


  • If you feel unwell please telephone to notify me and do not attend your appointment

  • Please arrive promptly, you will not be able to sit and wait and if you are late this will impact on changeover times and safety of patients following you. Please telephone to advise me if you are caught in traffic or running late

  • Travel light - please do not bring unnecessary clothing or baggage with you

  • If you wish to wear a mask please do so. I can provide hand sanitizer

  • Payment - this would be preferred by BACS transfer via online banking, ideally prior to your appointment. Please use the date of your appointment as your reference.  If you do not have the means of doing this and would prefer to pay by cash, please bring the correct amount in an envelope with your name and date of appointment on it.



If you have any concerns regarding your treatment please call me and I will be very happy to discuss anything further.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this time
