Corona Virus (COVID-19)
24 May 2020 – Update LIMITED OPENING FOR URGENT CARE ONLY
We know many of you will be waiting for news on the clinic following the announcement from the Prime Minister on Sunday as the Government signals a cautious move to ease the lockdown measures.
We are now able to see patients for face-to face consultations, ONLY in the case of an urgent clinical need, following recent advice from the British Chiropractic Association.
The health and safety of everyone who comes into the clinic is paramount, and it is crucial that there are measures in place to absolutely minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19 wherever possible. We have been preparing the clinic for a gradual controlled reopening with risk assessments, planning and sourcing appropriate PPE. More information regarding the changes and modifications can be found at the bottom of the email.
Whilst we cannot fully open the doors to all our lovely patients, it is important that we continue to follow the advice and guidance given. Please rest assured we continue to work hard behind the scenes to determine the best way forward for us all. We really do understand how difficult this is. Thank you again for your understanding and tolerance at this time. If you are a patient in need of advice, don’t forget our Chiropractor is available if you wish to speak to them, please send an email to [email protected] if you wish to speak to a Chiropractor and you will get a call back when they are available to do so.
In these initial stages as we ease out of lockdown, the Fulham clinic will be open on Thursdays only and Four Marks clinic will be Monday and Wednesday afternoons. If you are a Fulham patient and are in need of more frequent care, we advise you visit the Four Marks clinic for additional treatment (it is only 1 hour by car from Fulham).
Hopefully it will not be long before we are open fully again.
We hope you and all your loved ones and those around you stay safe and healthy.
Emily and The Spinal Answer Team
Information for patients
Where possible, we politely ask that patients use our online booking and payment platform to minimise non-clinical face-to-face contact. Please let us know if you are unable to do so and we will schedule an appointment for you over the phone/email. Where possible please pay at the time of booking online. Payments made in the clinic will be cashless & contactless when possible.
There will be spacing between appointments which allows our chiropractors to disinfect surfaces between patients and ensure appropriate physical distancing.
Your chiropractor will be wearing appropriate PPE as recommended by the British Chiropractic Association. If you have a face mask or face covering you are welcome to wear it.
Patients are encouraged to arrive at the exact time of their appointment, not early or late to avoid overcrowding.
Upon arrival at the clinic patients are asked to wait in their car or in the car park. A chiropractor or receptionist will call you to the reception when suitable. If waiting in a car is not possible, patients will have the option to wait in the reception area at designated seating which will be arranged at an appropriate distance between other chairs, practicing social distancing. Patients are asked to leave accessory items such as watches & jewellery at home or in their car.
Patients should only be accompanied if minors (Under 16 years of age), or require assistance. Other family members or friends are requested to stay in the car.
All patients will have their temperature taken by a chiropractor upon arrival at the clinic.
Hand sanitiser will be available & all patients will be requested to sanitise their hands when entering & exiting the clinic.
Patients are asked to wear appropriate clothing, we will not be able to provide any gowns/shorts at the practice.
Patients are encouraged not to remain in the clinic after their appointment for longer than is absolutely necessary. Online processes may assist this where possible.
Watch for COVID-19 symptoms & please reschedule your appointment if:
- You are experiencing any signs & symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, sore throat, tiredness, fever)
- Have had exposure to anyone with suspected or diagnosed COVID-19 in the last 14-21 days.
If you are in the ‘at risk group’, you are strongly advised NOT to receive care at this time. Please contact your chiropractor to discuss.
Ultimately, at The Spinal Answer Chiropractic, we are doing all that we reasonably can to minimise risk whilst remaining open. However, we cannot eliminate risk, especially as COVID-19 can be spread by those showing no symptoms.
Online Chiropractic Consultations
We are in the second week of doing the online chiropractic Telehealth consultations and they are proving to be a success and the feedback has been very positive, and provides a helpful resource for those in pain or with any health concerns. Of course, it is not at all the same as treatment in person but it enables a platform where we can connect and offer advice, support and guidance for a variety of health and wellness concerns.
Online consultations are available:
Monday to Friday 11.30am -1.00pm & 2.30pm- 5.00pm
(until further notice).
Ordinary follow up sessions will be slightly longer than our usual appointments in person to allow for technology restrictions and technical issues. A follow up appointment lasts 20-30 minutes for existing patients and costs £40. We also welcome new patients for an initial consultation.
All appointments must be booked online.
Payment will be taken at the time of booking your appointment (you will be guided through the process).
A booking confirmation email will be sent to you with the Telehealth link that you will need to activate at the time of your appointment.
