Coronavirus Policy

Please find below our extensive clinic procedures.

As ever, the health & wellness of our clients and staff are our absolute priority.

Gosforth Physiotherapy & Wellness Staff monitoring

All staff will have their temperature measured using our electronic ear thermometer, each day before commencing work. If any member of staff records a temperature above 37.9 degrees Celsius, they will immediately go home. If the staff member is a clinician, all of their clients will be notified via email immediately.

All staff have agreed that they will not come in to work if they develop any flu-like symptoms or a persistent, dry cough.

In line with government guidelines, any staff member who does test positive for coronavirus will self-isolate for 7 days, beginning at the onset of their symptoms.

Gosforth Physiotherapy & Wellness Client monitoring

We that request all clients cancel their appointments if the develop a fever (temperature above 37.9 degrees Celsius) or flu like symptoms or a new, persistent cough.

If any clients are living with any person with coronavirus or displaying the above symptoms, please cancel your appointment.

We understand that, in the event of the above, you may not develop the disease. We will arrange a follow up appointment for you, 1 week after the date of your cancellation, which you can attend if you are symptom free.

Our clinical staff will offer Telehealth / Zoom or telephone appointments to any clients who fall into the above categories. We understand that our ‘hands on approach’ will be impossible, but we will endeavour to provide you with the very best remote services possible (subjective assessment, clinical diagnosis, education, advice and exercise prescription)

Better by 5

Over 90% of our patients get ‘Better by 5’ sessions.

If you need any of our physiotherapy, sports injury, sports massage or acupuncture services, you should see and feel a real difference by the end of your fifth session.

If, on the other hand, there is no improvement in your clinical condition or in the way you feel – we STOP after the fifth session. At that point, we reassess the reasons why there has been no apparent improvement and, if necessary, we can organise scans and letters to GP's and Consultants. You can be sure that we will never continue treating you unless there is a positive benefit – and only when you (and we) agree on your treatment plan.
