January 2021 Covid Update
Due to the latest changes in Covid restrictions, we are pleased to confirm that Bridgeham will remain open for patients with a medical need to be seen.
Bridgeham has been “highly commended” by the Institute of Osteopathy for our work in the previous lockdowns, and in the Covid precautions we have in place.
We ask you to please respect the safety of our practitioners, staff and other patients by not attending if you are unwell.
If you are experiencing symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has symptoms, we ask you to please cancel your appointment and rebook when you have a negative Covid test.
We can still offer you a telephone or video consultation if you are unwell with Covid symptoms or been advised by your GP to shield but are also in pain.
The following information is based on what we know as at today (6th Jan). Please check our Facebook page or website blog for further updates, or give our admin angels a call on 01293542245.
Please continue to attend your appointment if your symptoms are worsening or have plateaued at an unacceptable level. Our osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners, and the business is Covid secure. As in the first and second lockdowns, Bridgeham osteopaths can help to reduce the burden on NHS services by continuing to see patients.
Telephone and video consultations are also available for patients who are shielding or who prefer not to come to the clinic at this time.
Selena and Rachel are still able to see patients with a medical need for acupuncture, i.e. not cosmetic.

Our Pilates instructors can see patients for online Pilates. If you have an appointment booked, please let us know if you would like to make this an online appointment or move it to March. We can send you a zoom link prior to your appointment.

Jo will be recommencing Pilates Rehabilitation Workshops from next week – details to follow, or see our website to see the schedule. These workshops are designed for anyone who would normally attend for Pilates 1:1’s but are unable to do so currently or for those who would benefit from maintaining or improving their mobility.

Based on current information we are unable to offer massage. However, for anyone who is in pain or suffering from restrictions in their mobility which is affecting their quality of life, our osteopaths can see you and use massage as part of their treatment.
