Covid Update - 04/06/21 onwards.

Hi again, as of Thursday night 04/06/21, we can return to business as usual for regional osteopaths.

However, masks continue to be mandatory & please don't show up if you have any Covid symptoms.

Cheers,

PCO team.

Covid Update - 28/05/21 - 04/06/21.

Hi all, we are still able to operate for the next 7 days of lockdown - from the 28/05 - 04/06.

The main crux is that treatment has to be deemed "essential care". The government defines this as follows:

  • Treatment for moderate to severe pain.

  • Treatment for pain that is creating a significant problem doing daily activities - sleep, walk, sit, go to toilet, lift kids, etc.

  • Treatment will likely help reduce the need for prescription pain medication.

  • Treatment will likely reduce the need for seeking medical care or imaging.

If you know that you have an appointment within the lockdown dates as above, please let us know whether you believe your visit to be for essential or routine care.

For those that are routine care, we will reschedule your appointment to a date after lockdown.

For those that are essential care, we will be in touch to sort out a time.

Lastly, if you're coming in for an appointment, make sure to bring a mask & don't come in with any of the Covid symptoms.

Cheers,

PCO team.
