NEWS AND COVID-19 UPDATES

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19)                                        UPDATE: 15.06.2020                                                            

 

CLINICAL PRACTICE OPEN FOR BOOKINGS AND SERVICES IN JULY.

I hope this update finds you and your family in the best of health.

We at Snowfit are pleased to announce that the shop and bookings will be opening on July 4th. The physio clinic services aim to commence on July 18th subject to guidelines. The services will not return to normal activity as strict health and safety procedures are required to adhere to guidelines set by the Chartered Society for Physiotherapists (CSP), The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and UK government health authorities. The safety of our patients and staff is always the priority.

  • Physio First state we should be confident to open services and practices to see patients face-to-face, subject to your country/area's lockdown restrictions and following the relevant safety and government guidance.
  • Our governing body HCPC say as a registrant we need to do all we can to minimise risk to yourself, colleagues and patients.
  • Normal face-to-face consultation remains closed following latest government updates on phased re-opening and CSPs advice. CSP state that “any clinicians need to be able to justify benefit of face-to-face consultation are demonstrable greater than the risk of transmissions”.
  • Virtual or remote consultation appointments will be available from July 4th and are in many circumstances as beneficial to face-to-face consultation.
  • NEW: Emergency face-to-face consultation adhering to strict safety measures according to CSP guidance. Please read below for further information.
  • NEW: If uncertain, please feel free to call for a 10 to 15 minutes informal talk and hopefully I should be able to answer any questions you might have.

For an emergency appointment I would like to inform you of the following changes we have implemented to reduce the risk to you, your families and to our staff as a result of COVID-19.

  • Pre-screening questionnaire and medical questionnaire to complete online less than 24 hrs before your appointment.
  • There will be no reception or waiting area to limit risk of any transmission.
  • All patients will need to phone the practice from outside the building or their car ON arrival and you will be advised when to enter the practice.
  • Upon arrival patient’s temperature will be taken. Patients with temperatures above 37.8°C will be rescheduled. Please do not take any paracetamol prior to the appointment as this makes the readings inaccurate.
  • Please wear suitable clothing for treatment, face masks or face covering to your appointment and use hand sanitation (provided) on entry and exit of the building.
  • In clinic, extra time has been allotted between patients to allow thorough cleaning of all surfaces. The therapist will use PPE (visor, mask and apron).
  • For patients in treatment, only the patient will be allowed in the practice. Please contact if a parent or for any other reasons somebody require attending with patient in clinic.
  • Social distancing must be maintained as far as possible. Please avoid using the toilet in the practice if possible.
  • Payments for treatment or items need to be made by card.

Due to these guidelines, I will be working on specific days and on limited capacity seeing far fewer patients.  So if you have been waiting for face-to-face appointment please book early and be patient with us.

The shop team will wear facemasks and/or shields and hand sanitising will be ready available all over the shop. If you have any concerns, please do contact us by phone or email on [email protected]

Best Wishes
Christian Simonsen

CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19)                                       UPDATE: 24.03.2020

 

PLEASE READ AS MAY CONCERN YOUR PHYSIO CLINIC VISIT

 

These are somewhat unprecedented times.

Therefore, I have with the support of Snowfit decided to provide new patients and valued existing patients 30 minutes free telephone consultations (or Facetime, Zoom) with advice and support.

Patients and staffs health and safety is our number one priority. Hence, we are avoiding any face-to-face meetings and working from home. The situation will be re-evaluated on a continuous basis. This we believe complies also with the most recent advice provided by the medical community and government Public Health England to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus. We really appreciate your understanding and consideration. Stay safe and in good health.

For free consultations please contact 01603 716655 and the physio clinic (will be transferred to the physiotherapist at home) or email: [email protected] .

Telephone opening hours are weekdays (Tuesday-Friday) between 10am and 4pm.

CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19)                                      UPDATE:16.03.2020

 

PLEASE READ AS MAY CONCERN YOUR PHYSIO CLINIC VISIT

I hope everyone reading this is in good health. This relates to the importance of self isolation and protecting the general public from the Coronavirus.

I would like to advise if you or anyone else in your proximity/household have been in contact with anyone with Coronavirus, or have the symptoms of high temperature, persistent cough or breathing difficulties, please inform the clinic in advance or cancel your appointment.

Furthermore, the Coronavirus can be asymptomatic, so if you have visited the clinic and subsequently develop symptoms within 7 days of visit, please inform me immediately.

If any of this is the case, please follow the current government and NHS advice and guidelines.

Understandably, in the event that I myself need to self-isolate and you have an appointment, I will contact you to cancel your appointment and rebook at a future time of convenience for you.

The clinic will follow medical and Public Health UK advice and guidelines on cleaning, sanitation and possible implementation of closure. Should closure arise I will provide an online/telephone advice service to patients. Further details will follow if needed.

DONJOY FITTING CENTRE                                              DATE:01.12.2019

 

Snowfit is pleased to announce that we have become the official Fitting Centre and provider of DONJOY braces and supports in Norfolk. Our in-store physiotherapist Christian has received specialist training from DJO Global, with special thanks to Craig Wilson, to give advice on knee braces and to measure bespoke DonJoy Defiance 3 custom braces.

The Defiance III (bespoke), Armour, FP and OA Adjuster 3 knee braces depicted provide outstanding support to ligaments, cartilage (menisci) and/or more degenerative conditions. The technical features of DonJoy knee braces with a Fourcepoint hinged system mean they are great for knee prevention, protection and rehabilitation. The braces are designed for high impact sports such as skiing (professionals choice), but also for sports such as tennis, rugby, football, horse back riding, golf, motocross, cycling etc.

Below you will find a selection of our demo range. These are available for customers and clients to come and try out in the shop. Our Physio will complete an assessment to ensure customers’ get the correct brace, fitting and size to match with your specific functional requirements and/or sport.

The braces we hope will help people overcome aches, pains and injuries, hopefully allowing you back on the slopes skiing, or to continue with any other activities and/or sports you love doing.

 

If you're interested in trying them out or simply learning more, please feel free to contact us.
