Covid-19 and telehealth
The health and wellbeing of our patients and local community is of paramount importance to us, but we also have a wider responsibility to public health and society in general.
So, at present, we are unable to see patients face-to-face in clinic due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we are offering virtual 'telehealth' online consultations to ensure that we are still able to give you the advice, reassurance and self-management strategies that will help to get you back on track.
But how can you help me if you’re not there, in front of me, in clinic?
From our experience, there are several things that you want as a patient when you come to see us in clinic.
And none of this requires a face-to-face visit, or hands-on treatment!
Whilst chiropractors are perhaps best-known for the hands-on treatment we provide, much of the benefit actually comes from the advice, exercises and self-management strategies that we are able to work through with you.
And whilst we are in ‘lock-down’, unable to see patients in clinic, we have the skills and knowledge to deliver this online.
During a telehealth consultation* we can:
*We use a secure online platform (doxy.me) that is specifically designed for telehealth consults. It’s easy to use, we simply send you a link that you just click. And we can always switch the camera off if you’re feeling shy! And it technology fails, we can always revert to a good, old-fashioned telephone!
So, not sure whether to make an appointment?
Give us a call! 01989 567222
We’re happy to chat things through, give advice and work out whether you need a more detailed assessment.
For our existing patients and for new enquiries, we are, as always, happy to give advice on the phone, free of charge. This might include an update on how you’re doing, a review of any exercises, or advice you might have been given, or whether you require more help from us.
Basically, if you would have made an appointment to come and see us in clinic, you should probably make an appointment to come and see us ‘online’!
How much does it cost?
We’re charging less than we would normally do in clinic, even though we give you as much (if not more!) time and expertise.
Initial consultation (45-60 mins) £44 (usually £54)
Follow-up appointment (20-30 mins) £34 (usually £38)
Still not sure?
