© Oxford Osteopaths 2017  

We are all in this together

Oxford Osteopaths will remain running with the same high levels of safety, efficiency and affordability we provide all year round. By continuing to manage old and new patients we can relieve the burden on NHS MSK services at this critical time.

We are continually tracking information via NHS England and other relevant regulatory professional bodies to ensure we are practising safe infection control in our environment to keep us and you safe.

What we are doing

  • Screening all patients at the point of booking and upon arrival at the clinic in line with Government guidelines

  • Providing all visitors access to alcohol-based hand sanitiser or wipes upon entry and exit

  • Increasing the frequency and thoroughness of cleaning around the building, including sanitising door handles car machine terminals and other frequently used surfaces

  • Using disposable couch roll on all our treatment couches and replacing it with fresh couch roll for each new patient

  • Wiping our treatment couches with an anti-viral spray after each patient treatment

  • Washing our hands thoroughly after treating every patient

  • Spacing appointments to keep waiting area free

  • One practitioner working at a time where possible

  • We are waiving any cancellation fees that would usually be incurred

What we are asking of you

  • If you consider yourself at risk, or have any flu like symptoms such as a persistent cough, shortness of breath, high temperature and/or fever, please do not attend the clinic

  • Please try and avoid bringing along visitors / family members to your appointment, unless necessary, in order to reduce the volume of visitors entering the clinic

  • Upon arrival at the clinic, please wash your hands in our WC or use the hand gel provided

  • Keep your hands clean, wash regularly and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water 

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch all coughs and sneezes, bin the tissue and then wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser to eliminate germs

  • If you’re feeling unwell or needing to self-isolate and would like to rearrange or cancel your appointment, please email us on clinic@oxfordosteopaths.co.uk
