The clinic is following government guidelines and implementing necessary COVID-19 safety measures to keep you and our staff safe.
We are open in order to assist those in pain in this stressful time and to help you recover fitness after illness, surgery or injuries.
The COVID-19 situation is being closely monitored by us and we have put strict health and safety measures in place that follow Public Health England (PHE) and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) guidelines to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
These measures are necessary, as the risk of virus transmission during face-to-face physiotherapy activity are heightened, as the therapist and patient are highly likely to be in close contact (i.e.: separated by less than two metres). Please read and abide by the following measures.
Booking and appointment criteria
Before booking, you’ll be asked screening questions and will be informed of the procedures in place and safety measures which we have implemented for patients and staff, so you know what to expect.
Please call 0208 990 9041 or email email@example.com to arrange a free phone consultation prior to making a booking.
We’ll ask why you’re requesting a face-to-face appointment, and offer remote video consultations when the benefit of attendance is outweighed by the risk and/or if you do not feel comfortable to come in to the practice.
We will need additional consent for face-to-face appointments; we have a consent form we will supply you with when you book.
You won’t be able to have a face-to-face appointment if:
If you are over 70 and/or at moderate risk, we will begin with a remote consultation.
Staff and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Practitioners will wear PPE in accordance with PHE guidelines: masks, disposable apron and gloves as deemed appropriate.
Clinic uniforms will be laundered daily at high temperatures.
What we’re doing
A high standard of hygiene is practiced by staff at The Physio Centre to minimise risk of transmission. Therapists will clean and disinfect the couch, chairs and all touch points/surfaces between uses.
Treatment sessions will be spaced out with staggered times to avoid contact with other patients and to allow cleaning/disinfecting between clients.
Therapists will wear a mask and will clean hands prior to and after the sessions.
If the toilet is used (in exceptional circumstances), it will be disinfected as regularly as possible during the day.
Aeration of the rooms will be increased. (10 mins between patients.)
We regret that you will have to expect slightly less comfort as pillows, couch covers and chairs will be covered with disposable plastic and there will be a limited reception/waiting area.
