I am very pleased to say that the professional body for physiotherapy (CSP) has confirmed that I can now return to clinic to treat patients face to face only where it is strictly necessary. I had hoped to contact all my patients prior to such an announcement, but I am now in a position to begin virtual triage appointments to allow me to assess whether or not my patients can be treated remotely or need to be seen in clinic.
My clinics have now been cancelled for 10 full weeks and so as you can appreciate, I have a lot of patients who’ve had their appointments cancelled. I will be prioritising all of these patients first but will let you know when I am ready to start to see anyone who wasn’t previously booked in.
If you were booked in from 23 March to date, I’ll be contacting you by email, mobile or telephone in the next week to let you know more about booking a triage call. We’ve got a lot of work to do so please bear with us while we get ourselves geared up for the ‘new normal’ for the foreseeable future.
Looking forward to speaking to and seeing you all again - I’ll be the one in the full PPE!
