Changes for a Covid Safe Clinic

We are taking every precaution to ensure we are all Covid safe.  These are the  changes we have had to make.

  • Everyone has to come in through the main entrance where you will have your temperature taken.
  • You will be given a mask if you haven’t got one of your own – nobody is allowed in the hospital without one unless they are exempt.
  • The lift has been completely overhauled and is now (almost) a pleasure to use.
  • When you get to the second floor, you will ring the bell as usual and, once you enter, you will be asked to clean your hands.
  • Reception has been changed and there is a barrier in place in front of the desk to protect you from close contact with the receptionist.
  • We can accept payments by card now, as well as in cash or by cheque.
  • We’ve changed the clinic timetable so there will only be one person waiting in Reception at any one time.
  • That means that you have to stay downstairs in reception until 5 or 10 minutes before your appointment.
  • We have had to close our toilet, so please take this opportunity to use the toilet on the ground floor, which is having extra cleaning, before you come up to us.
  • Your practitioner will be ready for you because they have extra time now to clean the room throughly between patients.
  • All practitioners will be wearing the PPE that is necessary for them to keep you safe and volunteers and staff will be wearing masks.
  • Sadly, we are unable to offer anyone refreshments.
  • Because we have to keep everything clean, please don’t bring in any unnecessary bags and we would also ask you to ask any carer to wait in the downstairs reception so we can keep people apart in our small clinic.

Got any questions – please give us a ring on 0207 739 2533

Impact of COVID 19 on Hoxton Health
Like most charities and many businesses COVID 19 has had a big impact on our finances and has reduced our ability to deliver services by about 1/3rd.
We want everyone to be able to live as painfree and healthy as possible.  This is why we are always fundraising to keep providing subsidised treatments.  If you are shopping on line you can help us by making us the charity of your choice.

More lung strengthening exercises

As we learn more and more about the effects of Covid-19, it is becoming more and more obvious that your respiratory strength is really important. Here is a video by a London hospital doctor that you can do to improve your breathing. It’s not too late to improve your lungs.

 

Strengthening your lungs

Helen is a singer. She’s made a video of an exercise Ingo Titze invented to help singers strengthen their lungs. Right now, we all need to do that, so take a look at this exercise and practise, practise, practise.
