Both our Stevenage and Gamlingay Clinics are now open. We are implementing the following measures to keep you and our Osteopaths safe:
If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. new persistent cough, high temperature, loss or change to sense of smell or taste) you must not attend the Clinics.
Prior to your first post lockdown visit, we will speak to you for a telephone triage conversation where we will screen you for not only symptoms of COVID-19, but also to ensure that you understand the measures that we have in place and are happy to adhere to them.
We will check your temperature before you enter the clinic.
There is hand sanitiser available at multiple points and you will be asked to wash your hands on arrival.
We operate a strict cleaning and sanitising protocol of the treatment room in between every patient.
Please arrive promptly for the time of your appointment and do not bring anyone with you unless you specifically wish to have a chaperone.
There are no toilet facilities.
Following government guidelines, your Osteopath will wear a mask, disposable apron and gloves for the hands-on component of your treatment.
You must wear a mask to enter the clinic and during your treatment.
Our Osteopaths work with AXA PPP, Aviva, WPA, Simply Health, Cigna, Standard Life and most other health insurers. Please contact our main reception team prior to your first consultation and treatment so that we may assist you in the claims procedure. If your health insurance is a 'cash-back' policy, just ask us for a receipt each time you visit us, we'll be happy to print or email one to you for each visit.
