Central Health Reopens for Face to Face Appointments in Spondon

Central Health has reopened its Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Osteopathy clinics in order to help those most in need of face to face treatments.
The clinics are now open at Central Health’s main treatment and rehabilitation centre in Spondon, where a comprehensive range of safety measures have been introduced to create a secure environment and help manage the risks of Covid-19.
Since closing it’s clinics in March due to the Covid-19 situation, Central Health has been offering patients telephone and video consultations, and whilst those consultations will remain available for the foreseeable future, patients in urgent need of face to face treatments are now being encouraged back to clinic.
To be able to reopen safely and ensure all face to face treatments are being delivered appropriately, Central Health has implemented safety measures including staggered appointment times, hand sanitiser stations, clear social distancing markings and a one way system around the treatment centre. Clinicians will take a daily health test, wear PPE equipment when with patients and further increase their already vigorous hygiene regimes. In addition, patients will be asked to wait in their cars prior to appointments, required to take a non-contact temperature test on arrival and wear a face covering when possible.
The team at Central Health has also rearranged treatment rooms to comply with social distancing guidelines and all hands on treatments will be provided in the safest possible manner.


Commenting on the reopening of clinics, Kevin Huffington, Clinical Director at Central Health said:
“We understand that lots of people are now in desperate need of face to face treatments to help alleviate and manage a wide range of painful conditions. 
“So after undertaking a major risk assessment and taking on board advice from industry bodies and Public Health England, we’re now extremely confident that we’ve created the safest possible environment for these treatments to be delivered.
“The health and wellbeing of our patients and staff is always our number one priority, and whilst things might look a little different, we’re very much looking forward to being able to once again provide a full range of services for those most in need.”
