We're excited to announce that we can start to welcome you back to Shoreham Chiropractic Clinic.
Of course the safety of you, our patients and our co-workers remains the highest priority, and so we have been working hard on ensuring we welcome you back safely.
We've introduced new measure so that you can enjoy a safe and comfortable experience. If you are wanting to arrange an appointment or have one booked and are going to be visiting the Clinic, could you please read the information below.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Social distance chiropractic is not possible, so here’s what we are doing to keep you and us as safe as possible.
To begin with we will limit the number and frequency of appointments. We will be operating a one in, one out system.
We will be wearing PPE as patients arrive and ask you to wear a face covering or mask too. For your information, our PPE will include a mask, single use apron and gloves and visor.
Please visit alone. Only bring one other person from the same household if you need special assistance. Please do not bring accompanying children with you. Unfortunately, the toilets will be closed.
We’ll be cleaning even more regularly. And providing plenty of hand sanitiser.
Bank transfers not cards
We will only be accepting bank transfer payments prior to your appointment, as we will be operating without our wonderful front desk support initially.
To ensure a safer experience when you visit us:
Firstly we ask that you (download and) complete a Pre-treatment assessment questionnaire from our website to ascertain if you are safe to be considered a face-to-face appointment.
Please come to your appointment alone unless you are accompanying a child to their appointment
Please wear a face mask or face covering for your appointment.
Please try and arrive on time. Avoid arriving early or late for the purpose of social distancing. On arrival please wait by the SCC front door.
Please use the hand sanitiser provided in reception as soon as you enter the clinic and again on your way out of the clinic after your treatment.
Please avoid touching surfaces in the clinic. The toilet facilities will be closed.
Here are some the steps we will be following in our aim to deliver the safest possible care to you.
Prior to attending your appointment at the clinic it maybe necessary to schedule a telephone call to discuss your problem in more detail before we see you face to face. You will be advised of this when you make the appointment.
When it is time for your face to face appointment, your chiropractor will meet you at the door and let you into the clinic where they will take your temperature.
Your chiropractor will be wearing PPE of gloves, a ‘single use apron’, a face mask and a visor.
We will be keeping the actual hands on treatment times to within a 15 min window.
The room will be well ventilated by open windows and where possible, and if privacy allows, the treatment room door will be kept open.
We will be scheduling less frequent appointments to allow for thorough cleaning of equipment and the room between each patient, to allow the chiropractor to change PPE safely and correctly and to ensure we are complying with social distancing requirements.
If you would like to bring your own clean towel from home to lay over the cleaned bench then please do so.
Our Pilates and Yoga Classes
For now, in line with the guidance of the government and local authorities, our studio will remain closed until at least September. However, we will be continuing with the online classes, that have been set up and running over the Zoom platform, for the time being. They are proving very popular and successful. It’s easier to use than many think.
Our instructors are hoping to see more of you online, as they continue these classes through the summer months.
Our Staff and full team of Chiropractors
We have also taken the difficult decision to reopen without our wonderful front desk team for now, and with only one chiropractor to begin with. Once we begin to gain confidence in our new normality and the clinic begins to pick up pace again we hope to be able to phase back in both chiropractors and front desk staff.
Toys and non essential equipment
For your safety, non essential furniture, magazines, books, toys and equipment will be removed from the clinic for now.
To book appointments in the meantime please either call the Clinic on 01273 461 155 (please leave a message and we will call you back) OR use our website contact form.
If you are not feeling ready to venture out to see us in person, don’t worry we understand. Small steps are what is needed as we all feel our way through this new normaliity we find ourselves in.
You can continue to help you via our tele-health consultations and over the phone.
