A Covid-Safe Clinic
We're please to reveal that the clinic is now open again following the national lockdown. Things will be a little different to what you're used to however, so please read the info below to see what changes we've made.
To ensure the safety of both our patients and staff in the clinic, we have developed a new process that all patients will need to follow before, during and after their visit. Patients can now book for both Physiotherapy and Massage appointments.
Before you arrive:
To book an appointment, please call the clinic on 01509 226240.
When you arrive:
1. Report to Powerbase reception and complete a temperature check
2. Provided your temperature is 37.7 or below, you will be asked to proceed directly to our clinic reception on the 1st floor - follow the signs for Loughborough University Physiotherapy Clinic
3. The clinician will then lead the patient (keeping social distance) to the designated treatment area.
4. The patient will be asked to use the hand gel provided on entering and leaving the clinic.
5. The patients will be instructed to leave the clinic area out of the nominated door and turn right, exiting down the stairwell at the top of the corridor.
6. Patients are to wear their own face mask/covering for treatment.
We have increased social distancing measures in place and have increased amount of cleaning to reduce the risk of contracting Covid-19.
The rehab gym and game ready room remain closed but the game ready & compex equipment can be used as part of treatment.
(To reduce the risk of cross contamination patients will be asked to purchase their own compex pads (cost £5).)
Patients will receive an e-mail explaining the above process and tasks in place to limit the risks of Covid-19 infection.
