Appointments for Assessment &Treatments
Due to Covid 19 we have had to change the way we book appointments. Where normally we would see everyone face to face for assessments, treatments and our other physio services we are now doing triage calls first. This is in line with guidance from government and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Please see below for more information on what to expect.
Face to face or remote?
Where clinically appropriate and safe to do so we will aim to see patients face to face. For those who are clinically vulnerable, isolating or where miles divide we will be happy to book a remote appointment. To ascertain which of these is most suitable for you we will schedule a short triage telephone call.
Remote and face to face initial physio appointments are approximately 45 minutes long and follow ups are 30 minutes. Full workstation assessments are around 45-60 minutes.
What to expect if a remote appointment is booked
These appointments will be done either by Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp or telephone if you don’t have a screen. All the usual background information/history as well as current symptoms and problems will be taken and an assessment carried out, this is where a screen is helpful so I can see you in action. Following this assessment I will be able to provide you with the advice, recommendations and exercises you need.
What to expect if a face to face appointment is booked
Before you attend you will need to:
(1) Confirm that you feel well and don’t have any Covid 19 symptoms including a high temperature, a new continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
(2) Confirm that you haven’t been in contact with anyone who has Covid 19 within the last 10 days.
(3) Have consented on the form to accept the risks of coming to the clinic for treatment at this time, and
(4) Have agreed to the sharing of your contact information if I am asked to do so by Track & Trace and you agree to contact me if you are contacted by Track & Trace & asked to isolate or a face to face appointment will not be able to take place.
On the day of your appointment if you are not feeling well please do not attend and your appointment can be rescheduled.
If you are well and symptom free, please arrive at the time of your appointment, not earlier as there is not longer a waiting area. Please wear appropriate clothing and wait outside. Do not knock on the door I will come to the door at the time of your appointment. Please wear a face covering. I will provide hand gel for your use on arrival and I will also be taking your temperature. Anyone with an increased temperature will not be seen on that day.
Please minimise the things you touch while you’re at the clinic and help to keep yourself and the clinic as safe as possible.
Regarding PPE/clinic cleaning
Be assured I will be wearing PPE, including a mask and gloves. We will continue to maintain 2 metres social distancing as much as possible during your appointment until the necessary time to assess and treat you hands on.
If you need to use the loo while you’re here it will be available but if you can go before you arrive that would be appreciated.
Between each appointment I will be cleaning the surfaces we use. Patients will not be seen back to back and there will be a space between each appointment to allow for this.
I hope this answers any questions you may have but please do contact me if there’s anything else you’d like to know.
