The government has recently announced that London is to be placed in Tier 2. This does not change the ability (beyond the measures we have already put in place) of our practitioners to provide care for you at the clinic, so we continue to offer appointments in the COVID safe environment we have created at the clinic. Below are examples of the steps we have taken, or ask you to take to help us keep everyone as safe as possible.
- All staff that exhibit Covid-19 symptoms or other flu-like symptoms are asked to stay home.
- We are vigorously sanitising all areas constantly throughout the day.
- All staff will continue to sanitise equipment after each patient use.
- Staff use all the appropriate PPE.
- Staff are to sanitise/wash their hands before and after each patient interaction.
- Furniture has been re-arranged to allow at least 2 metres between each patient.
- Patients are asked to sanitise their hands on entry to the clinic.
- Those accompanying patients are asked to wait outside the clinic.
- We have staggered appointments and reduced staff levels to the minimum to reduce the risk of infection.

The COVID 19 pandemic is affecting our ability to provide you with our usual range of services and treatments. The current situation is that some practitioners continue to work within government guidelines. These have recently been eased so that some practitioners, such as Philip Waldman (Osteopathy) and Julie Day (Podiatry and Chiropody) are able to provide a wider range of treatments beyond the urgent / emergency care only restrictions that were in place.
During Lockdown Sue Turner offers motivational and clinical hypnotherapy sessions by Skype, What’s App or phone. This works very well and Sue has had some significant successes with this method, in terms of helping people quit smoking, prepare for interviews, overcoming insomnia and anxiety.
We are trying to balance the needs of our patients against the needs to be responsible and maintain the highest standard possible. Those practitioners that are working have carried out risk assessments and brought measures into place. Measures include increasing our cleaning / disinfection routines, limiting the number of people present in the clinic at any one time and staggering appointments so that people don’t cross paths whilst at the clinic. You will need to be triaged over the phone before you attend the clinic to confirm you aren’t, for instance, suffering any symptoms of a COVID 19 infection or an upper respiratory tract infection.
We will update this information as soon as anything changes, which it surely will in this very fluid time.
We are going to disable online bookings for now, so that we have full control over the booking schedule. If you’d like to find out if a particular practitioner is still taking appointments, please either call the clinic on 0207 352 3087, or contact the practitioner direct via the practitioner page.
In the meantime, all of us at Chelsea Natural Health wish you well.
