Hmmm, So this is a moving house update but will likely have an addition mention when I get further guidance from my governing body regarding if things will change with Lockdown 2.0. I am hoping not much will happen as the rules from the first one regarding Chiropractic still haven’t been lifted but we will see.
After a fair few years at 15 High Street the clinic is down sizing to a tiny office on Granville Road for at least the next year. It is a 5 minute walk from St Albans City Station. There is on street parking with permit restrictions for Zone P (No parking from 13:00-15:30), and there is a steep single space off street directly in front of the building for your use which will be kept free.

UPDATE 22nd June 2020
So, back to normal?…Not quite. There are a significant number of changes that have had to be made to the whole process of treatment but we are starting appointments again this coming Wednesday. For the first few weeks of teething appointment times available to book online will be limited, please see the availability through the Fresha booking, either on the Fresha App directly or via our booking links.
Opening times will also differ slightly, if you had a previous treatment time that is not available with the current opening hours please email email@example.com and I will see what I can do.
Changes for me. I will be treating in full PPE. Face mask, visor, gloves, gown, scrub tops. There is a cleaning schedule between each patient and a new screening/validating process on booking and attending clinic.
Changes for you. All patients must wear a face covering/ mask for the duration of their appointment. There are no longer toilet facilities at the clinic. There is no longer a waiting room. There is no longer a water fountain. No visitors unless career, parent or guardian.
There are risks of catching coronavirus when you attend for chiropractic treatment during a global pandemic, there is therefore a new consent form I must have everyone understand and sign prior to treatment. It can be found here and will be emailed to you on booking an appointment.
This will not be a permanent situation, we are not back to normal but we can start getting back to better.
Clinic Closure due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
UPDATE 14th May 2020
Urgh, everything continues. We are not yet at a position to start opening again yet for adjustments. I have now got virtual clinics being trialled and have got a good exercise/ stretching advice regimes I can tailor make so please do let me know if you are looking for some guidance/advice in this time and i’ll ping something along to you. Hope all are well and I will be providing further guidance when everything opens again, there will be changes (use of PPE during appointments, no visitors and longer sessions to accommodate no waiting room) but I will explain all these plans when we get a start date. Stay safe.
25th March 2020 – Clinic Closure due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
It is with regret that after consultation with colleges, the MCA ( Mctimoney Chiropractic Association) and the ongoing government advice I am cancelling all appointments booked at Complete Chiropractic for the next three weeks, after which we will review. During this time all online booking through Fresha will be disabled.
I will be in contact with all patients who have an appointment booked during this time.
Any patients who require urgent treatment will undergo a telephone triage appointment beforehand, whereby consideration will be given to determine if treatment can be conducted at the clinic.
Treatments in the clinic will only be conducted as a last resort and after alternative methods have not been successful, eg telephone advice, regular pain relief medication and 7 days rest and may be at non-standard times due to my ongoing nursing commitment.
If you have concerns about the current healthcare situation please see the links below which may help facilitate answers to concerns you currently have.

Please remember I am only an email away and if you need any advice or support whilst the clinic is closed do not hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to thank all of my patients for the continued support and loyalty and I look forward to seeing you soon.
Please look after your loved ones and stay safe.
