In light of the current Coronavirus outbreak, we recognise that there will be many people affected by musculoskeletal pain or disorders who are unable to attend an in-person appointment. We really do still want to help, but we are under guidance to not see patients face to face, so we have set up a video consultation service. These web-based consultations give you the opportunity to speak with a qualified Chiropractor without having to attend our clinic, ensuring you get the right advice and support you need to help facilitate your recovery. All consultations take place via our secure practic managment software. Its very simple to use, honest!
“Well-designed telehealth schemes can improve health care access and outcomes, particularly for chronic disease treatment and for vulnerable groups. Not only do they reduce demands on crowded facilities, but they also create cost savings and make the health sector more resilient.” (WHO) [accessed 15/03/20]
Video appointments are consultations which take place over webcam using your smartphone/tablet or PC. You will receive appropriate, evidence-based advice and guidance from a fully regulated Primary Healthcare Practitioner.
Telehealth Consultation: What to Expect
In this consultation, your practitioner will take a detailed history and conduct an investigation into your condition virtually. Furthermore, if additional tests are indicated, an onward referral can be arranged. You may be given a diagnosis and management advice. This can include exercise, self-help advice about posture and home guidance. Prior to the Telehealth consultation you will be sent an invitation, you will simply need to click on the link to join the meeting (if you are using and iPhone or iPad you will need to follow these instructions). The consultation can take place using your phone, tablet or laptop/PC. Your device may prompt you to download the Zoom app, this is relatively straightforward as there will be a link to click.
During your consultation, we are able to create a personalised care plan that consists of various stretches, exercises and care guidance for you to follow at home. Exercises are provided in video format to show how they should be performed. You will be able to report on your progress via the app, allowing your Chiropractor to monitor your recovery.
All new patients and returning patients will need to have a telehealth appointment first, this will help to reduce the time you need to spend in clinic. The fee for the is £15 for new patients and £5 for returning patients – when you come in to clinic for treatment you will be charged the normal fee of £35.
NHS new patients do not have to pay a fee for new patient or follow up appointments.
