Covid Procedures at Onebody

The following information is based upon a comprehensive Covid-19 risk assessment for Onebody Clinic.

Onebody Clinic is open now for face-to-face appointments for Physiotherapy and Osteopathy. 

Over the last weeks, we have been offering only video based appointments to support the governments "Stay Home" message. We will continue to offer video consultations, and will be following a "Virtual First" approach to care. If we can help via video, that is what we will offer first. 

However, if your conditions requires urgent face to face help (you have worrying symptoms that need to be fully assessed), is time-sensitive (will get worse if not seen in a timely manner, such as post-surgery of injury), or has been worsening despite virtual consultations, then we are now able to offer face to face treatment. If you would like to find out if we can offer you face to face appointment, call us on 02070183980, or email us on info@onebodyclinic.co.uk and we can help you. 

As we start to offer face to face appointments, we continue to work to prevent the spread of covid by our fully overhauled infection control procedures.

These measures are based on the updated government guidance and the PPE advice as provided by the NHS, CSP and HCPC. They will be reviewed regularly.
