I am open but precautions will continue to be taken so that all my patients feel safe during their appointments. I expect you to respect them by help be responsible for their health.
There is also a short covid screening form link in your appointment reminder email. If you don’t recieve it you can download here
Online booking is open, and so is phone booking. Both are convenient and really easy use!
That’s me been back for the the whole of May and June. Since Lockdown ended it’s been great seeing some familiar faces and also new ones. It’s also been a bit disappointing hearing about some of the treatment that some of you have had while I’ve been closed (More about this in an upcoming newsletter!).
With us now in July I thought it was time to plough ahead with something I’ve planning for a little while… a newsletter…it’s not something that’s particularly ground breaking, but it’s a good way for you to find out about any special offers available to subscribers and also starting to pull all my hints and tips together and help you find various new videos when they’re done.
During Lockdown I managed to slip on ice and fracture my shoulder. Here’s a photo of me with my sling on. What you can’t see is the degree of bruising and swelling going on under the shirt sleeve. I was, as you can probably guess, not thrilled to have done this, but rather than seeing this as solely a negative phenomena, I wanted to see what I could learn from it..I’ve been doing regular, warts and all YouTube videos on my broken shoulder. I’m now well into the rehab phrase. It never gets easier if you push it. You just move further.
Online appointments have proved really successful, with patients saying how happy there were with them. They were happy with the ease and effectiveness of them, that I’m keeping these as a general appointment option.
I’ve been taking case histories, doing movement and joint exams. I’m then able to diagnose, give reassurance and guidance for you to treat yourself at home and I also prescribe rehab exercises too.
These have got easier and easier to book and attend as the software has improved over the period of the lockdown. Booking and paying has become almost fully automated and is now as easy to book online as a standard appointment.
Attending an appointment is a simple as clicking a button on the confirmation email. The appointment can be done at a time and place that’s convenient to you. You don’t even need to leave your home. .
