January 2021 Lockdown Update
Because osteopaths  are exempt from the new government lockdown restrictions , Osteopathy East is remaining open until further notice.  We have had to make a few temporary changes to the clinic and to the process of booking an appointment due to the COVID-19 crisis:
  • Increased hygiene, distancing and protection measures within the clinic for the safety of patients and staff. These changes can be viewed in the clinic COVID-19 policy.
  • All practitioners at Osteopathy East manage their own patient bookings and need to be contacted directly. To make an appointment with Rick please book online via this website as all patients will need to complete a COVID-19 Triage Questionnaire before being able to attend the clinic.
  • This questionnaire is included in the booking confirmation email sent to every patient immediately after they have booked online. Currently Rick is unable to treat anyone who hasn’t completed this questionnaire.
  • Please be assured that despite these changes, osteopathic quality and effectiveness remains unchanged.
