Bristol Coronavirus
Posted 13/03/20

At Bristol Neurophysio we're keeping a close eye on the situation with the current Coronavirus.

Many of the people with whom we work are in the most vulnerable categories of the population and our approach needs to protect both clients and staff.

We already have a comprehensive infection control policy in place to which we will be adhering as always and we are keeping a close eye on government and NHS advice and following this in order to minimise the risk to our clients and team members.

In accordance with the latest advice, any of our therapists and support staff who develop symptoms of a fever and cough will be self-isolating for seven days.  We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause but it is the appropriate response in the circumstance.

We are also implementing the following approach for clients:-

- If we treat you in clinic and you have developed a new cough or fever then please stay at home and email or call us to rearrange your appointment.

- If we visit your home to provide therapy and you or another member of your household has developed a new cough or fever, please email or call us to rearrange your appointment.

We are reviewing our appointment cancellation policy to reflect this advice.

Please contact us for more information if you have any queries.


Some kind words

Our daughter’s renal failure means that she is delayed with standing and walking at 2 and half years of age. We first started seeing Jules a few months back for an intense block of physiotherapy to build the strength and skills needed for her to eventually stand and walk.  It was really important that the physiotherapist specialised in paediatrics and could work alongside the NHS physiotherapists we also see. Jules immediately put us at ease with her friendly and professional approach and has built a good, trusting relationship with our daughter.  She uses play as a way to get our daughter to engage with the therapy.  Our daughter has really enjoyed all her physio sessions to date and we have seen a notable improvement in her movement.  She has begun to pull herself up and can climb up small steps as well as shuffle down stairs in a controlled manner!
