Updated Covid-19 Advice for Patients (April 2022)

Here at Keith James Physiotherapy, we maximise the safety of our patients and staff by following ongoing advice given from Public Health England and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy following the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Please do not come into the clinic if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19. The recently updated list of symptoms includes:

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick

We continue to take measures to protect our staff and patients at the clinic, including:

  • We ask you to arrive at your appointment time and not any earlier.
  • Patients should come to their appointment alone (unless they are a child or require a carer).
  • Please use the hand sanitiser to and from entry to the clinic.
  • Please minimise your contact with handrails and furniture.
  • Please wear appropriate clothing for your appointment. Patients with upper limb issues should wear a vest top and patients with lower limb issues should wear loose fitting shorts.
  • We have staggered our appointment times to reduce waiting room traffic.
  • Staff ensure all clinic areas are cleaned regularly with disinfectant and between patients.

As always, you can be reassured we are staying up to date with advice and guidance on best practice. Should you have any concerns or queries, please contact us on (0117) 330 6820 or email [email protected] for more information.
