Blackhall Osteopaths

With the recent easing of lockdown restrictions in Scotland, the clinic will begin to reopen on Wednesday 3rd June.

However, to comply with the latest government guidelines regarding COVID-19, we have had to implement a few changes to the clinic and appointment routines that you should be made aware of and consent to before attending for you appointment.

Before seeing anyone for face to face consultations, you will be asked a few questions over the phone to make sure that you are asymptomatic for COVID-19, have not been in contact with anyone with symptoms in the previous 14 days and are not in the high risk or shielding group of patients. If you or anyone in your household is experiencing a high temperature, a new continuous cough, cold/flu like symptoms or loss/change to your sense of smell or taste, then you will be advised not to attend the clinic.  

In accordance with the protocols set out by NICE (National Institute for Healthcare Excellence) and the NHS, all healthcare clinics where there is face to face contact will be following similar infection control guidelines as these.

We will be also be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) which will include disposable gloves, a face shield and a disposable apron. Patients will also be required to wear a face mask which will be provided, or you can bring your own.

Before and after every patient, the Osteopath will be thoroughly washing their hands and forearms. Sufficient time will be allocated between each patient to fully sanitize the treatment room. All hard surfaces, the treatment couch, seating, pillows and commonly handled items will be cleaned with disinfectant and the room ventilated for at least 20 minutes. All disposable PPE will be placed into bags and disposed of after 72 hours.

All patients should be aware however, that although we are taking every precaution possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to the virus when you attend for your appointment. Therefore can accept no responsibility for transmission of COVID-19 should you subsequently become infected post treatment.

These new policies will take a bit of getting used to for both patients and practitioners and will alter the therapeutic process to some degree, but unfortunately are now a necessary fact of practice life. At least for the foreseeable future.

So, If you are experiencing back, neck, muscle or joint pains, we are now here to help you. Get in touch to make an appointment. Our Osteopath has over 19 years experience and is fully insured and registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

  • Testimonials

After a glowing recommendation I took my elderly mother to see Daniel with chronic knee and shoulder pain. At the age of 92 she received much relief and professional care. Daniel explained exactly what was going on which eased her concerns. His professional treatment has improved her quality of life.

Having been treated by Daniel for back and shoulder pain, which is vastly improving, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have Osteopathic treatment with anyone else. He is extremely thorough and explored all angles of my back/shoulder pain so that he could treat me to the best of my advantage. I have always found him to be approachable and helpful, and he doesn’t mind that I continually ask questions about what he is doing and why. I would definitely recommend him.
