Corona Virus Update
As Healthcare providers Chiropractic Clinics are allowed to remain open during this lockdown and at Helston Chiropractic Clinic we are very happy to be able to offer you continued appointments.
There are however, a few changes about the way that we are doing things and about who we are allowed to see.
The primary concern for everybody is of course, safety. This should go without saying, and although we continue to follow government guidelines and best practices in keeping everything clean and safe, staying home during lockdown remains the government’s principal advice.
At the moment we are, understandably advised not to offer appointments to anybody considered Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV)
We are also advised to see only patients with a medical or health need. This can be understood as having pain, or as receiving treatment as part of a plan of care.
If you consider your appointment a ‘maintenance’ or ‘wellness’ treatment, then this might be worth considering at this time, from a risk point of view.
Your temperature will be checked when entering the building as well as being asked to sanitize your hands.
I have put in place strict cleaning protocol and will be wearing all of the PPE required. Generally mask, gloves and apron.
I won't be able to offer as many appointments each week for now, and times will be slightly different due to space needed in between appointments to clean the room and sanitise equipment.
Whilst we continue to tighten things up, it is worth revisiting the expectations that we have of all visitors to clinic in order to be able to continue to see patients.
Please do not attend if you have any COVID related symptoms.
Please also do not attend if you or anybody within your household are awaiting a COVID test result.
Please do not attend your appointment if you have any type of infectious health condition, including a cold. If you are not sure, then please just give us a call first.
Please attend the clinic in a clean and hygienic attire. If you have had contact with lots of people prior to attending, then please wear suitable and fresh clothing.
Please take time to read any signs on the door before entering. If the door is closed, then please wait outside before being invited in.
ALL visitors to the clinic MUST now wear a face covering. Please do not be offended if you are asked to put one on. This is to help to protect you, all staff and visitors, as well as other patients.
And then hopefully soon, we'll be back to normal... Well, almost normal.
