OsteoVision | Fully Qualified Osteopath & Massage Therapist | COVID-19 Procedure

COVID-19 Procedure

OSTEOVISION is opening on the 13th July 2020 for face to face consultation and treatments to patients/customers.

 

We will be following the guidance published by Public Health England which are in line with the most recent Government guidance issued to ensure patient safety during COVID-19.

 

We continue to work closely with our governing bodies to ensure patients and customers can receive the treatments that they desire, whilst ensuring their and our practitioners’ safety.

 

All patients/customers will be assessed over the phone prior to attendance to ensure that they and members of their household do not have relevant symptoms.

 

Patients will attend a screening appointment via video or phone, followed by face to face treatment.

 

An Email COVID-19 questionnaire will be sent to each patient prior to face to face treatment, which patients/customers will need to complete prior to treatment.

 

New Patients should try book a video or phone consultation 24-48hrs prior to treatment, which will be followed by a face to face appointment following the above consultation.

 

Patients have the option to bring their own towels to lay on if they so wish. We provide the option of standard towels which are washed after use, as well as single-use paper towels.

 

All Payments will be online.
