Coronavirus - Information and Our Response
As of Monday 23rd March, I have decided to temporarily close the clinic.
It is a decision that I do not take lightly, but it is the right thing to do to help reduce the spread of CoronaVirus.
I will personally be getting in touch with patients that were booked in over the coming weeks to let you all know individually, and to also let you know that although the clinic is closed, I am still here for you if you are in pain and am willing to do whatever I can via a phonecall / video consultation to help you.
It is impossible to say when we will be opening again, but I will keep you updated and am looking forward to the day when we will be seeing you all again.
Patients with future appointments beyond 21st April we will keep those in the diary, but we do not expectto be fully operational by then.
Like I said, please stay in contact via email / text / phonecalls, and we will be setting up a video consultation service for our patients to offer support, advice, exercise reminders and reassurance free of charge.
If you are struggling, please get in touch and we can work on ways to progress your care from home.
Stay safe, look after each other and we will keep you updated when we reopen.
In the strongest possible terms we wish to advise all our patients immediately and stringently follow government advice about self isolation and social distancing.
Thank you all so much for your support so far this year.
We will be in touch very soon.

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.
Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
- shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
- any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
There is separate advice about:
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Finally, getting good sleep, reducing stress, eating well and taking Vit C and D will help your immune system.
