What to expect when you arrive at one of our clinics
The following instructions are to help protect both yourself and your Physiotherapist, as well as help to prevent further spread of the Coronavirus. Please don’t worry about having to remember the following procedures, as your Physiotherapist will be there to help and guide you through each step of the process.
- Please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible and wait outside the clinic main front door (for Gracemount appointments your physiotherapist will greet you in the mezzanine area outside the gym. Please do not enter the gym).
- Please don’t knock or try to open the door
- Your Physiotherapist will open the door at your appointment time and ask you to first sanitise your hands with alcohol gel
- You will be provided with a new face mask to place over your mouth and nose, using the ear loops
- Your temperature will be checked using an infrared “no contact sensor”
- Your Physiotherapist will then let you into the clinic and you will be taken directly to the treatment room. For your safety, the waiting areas have been cordoned off and our reception staff will all be working from home
- Please avoid touching doors and handrails
- Physiotherapist will co-ordinate a clear passage for you to enter or leave the clinic
