New Procedures

Things are a little different at Cathedral Osteopaths Ripon whilst we still have cases of Coronavirus in the UK. We want to keep you safe and still be able to support your needs with Osteopathy.

  • We will need to talk to you ahead of your appointment to make sure you are well and not in the high risk group for Coronavirus.
  • The reception area has changed

We have decluttered reception to make it easier to clean and sanitise,  there is no complementary water or magazines. There is one wipeable chair and some hand sanitizer, face masks are available – we are not charging extra for these at the moment.

Your practitioner

Obviously we cannot maintain distance for your treatment so we will be wearing appropriate PPE.  We wash our hands and arms up to the elbows before and after every patient.

Everything is sanitised before you arrive.

All surfaces and door handles are cleaned with appropriate cleaner bwtween every appointment.

We have wipeable pillows now, we stopped using couch covers back in March to make it easier to clean.

When you have an appointment please observe the following

  1. Please complete the online mandatory COVID survey ahead or your appointment. (Someone will contact you to complete this if you do not have access to the internet or an email address)
  2. Wear loose comfortable clothing for your treatment
  3. Arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time,
  4. Come alone (unless under 16 yoa or if you require assistance)
  5. You must wear a facemask before entering the premises.  If you are exempt from wearing a mask let us know when booking.
  6. Use hand sanitizer on entering the premises
  7. Only bring what you need for your appointment (please avoid bringing bags etc)
  8. The WC is not in use for patients. There are public toilets opposite the Cathedral.
  9. We will contact you to rearrange your appointment if your osteopath reports any symptoms or has been told to self-isolate.
  10. If you have any symptoms of COVID please let us know and we will cancel your appointment. We will not charge the cancellation fee.

We hope that these changes will not interfere with the good service that you expect from us at the Cathedral Osteopaths but rather enhance your feeling of well-being that we have your health and safety at the core of all we do. We look forward to welcoming you back into the practice.
