In-clinic policy during the COVID-19 period:
Ideally we are moving all our services to remote support. However, if you need an in-clinic
assessment, athletes are required to self asses their health prior to any appointments.
Let us know if you have any signs or symptoms of illness; or have potentially been in contact with anyone who has, so we can advise on the best way to proceed.
In order to comply with distancing recommendations, only one person is permitted in the clinic at one time. (unless you need a parent or guardian present).
We will also require you to follow our hygiene protocols whilst in the practice.
