Welcome to The Copperhouse Clinic
NATIONAL LOCKDOWN GUIDANCE FOR THE COPPERHOUSE CLINIC
1ST NOVEMBER 2020
As a clinical setting with fully registered Health Care Professionals to day we have a legal duty of care to stay open for Emergency, Urgent and Routine Patient Care status appointments. Usually 2 - 3 days after any government announement we receive extra legal guidance from the CEO's of all the professional health governing bodies with their ethical guidance and current status level we operate on. As before in the first lockdown we anticipate we will remain open but the status can change. Therefore please keep your appointments already made unless we contact you. If it switches to emergency status only - then we may cancel some. Learning from the last post lockdown please do not ignore any severe symptoms you may have as that is also important in musculosketal healthcare. Reception will operate in clinic on site and remotely Monday - Friday and all messages will be answered.
Please be patient whilst we re-group. In summary your appointment remains current. Also we continue to provide PPE, temperature and oxygen saturation testing for every patient.
Thank you. Sophie Combarel. Head of Practice.
2ND NOVEMBER 2020
WE REMAIN OPEN UNDER LEGAL CLINICAL GUIDANCE -
STATUTORY NOTICE : Statutory Instrument 350: The Health Protection
(Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 sent in writing
to registrants at 11.23hrs this morning. Please be advised that our
regulator does "not see that base legislation changing materially in the
near future. All of the local restrictions which have been announced
across the UK permit healthcare services to continue to operate.
However, we strongly urge members to review their risk assessments regularly, in the light of the changes in their local area and to seek out and take advice issued by their local public health teams.
In short – you are able to stay open and to practise in the safest way possible for you and your patients, unless the situation changes to such an extent that the BCA advises otherwise".
We await confirmation only now for the patients who have Sports Therapy Appointments as they often fall in to separate legislation. If we are notified to cancel we will call all patients as appropriate.
In summary please be advised that your appointments remain current unless we phone / email to cancel. New appointments can also be made. If you have special needs or are Vulnerable we are able to accommodate you in the appropriate manner at the current time.

Whether you are learning to walk again, have joint pain, bone inflammation, tired and aching muscles, stiff joints do you understand why it is happening? What pain is referred pain, systemic pain, ageing musculoskeletal pain, growing pains?
The kinetic chain of movement in our bodies changes throughout our lives but function, range of movement and pain management often needs to be a combined approach or care plan - even if only a short burst of another professional input is needed.
I learned this first hand when I had to learn to walk again years ago. I found stretch work i.e. pilates, yoga and specific exercise prescription was only one of the avenues I needed to truly progress. I was lucky enough to witness first hand when working for the trail blazing charity Scope that core stability was crucial for pelvic stabilisation that helped people walk and move better again.
This inspired me to train further as a podiatrist and further explore the impact of intrinsic muscles in the feet and hands and how this affected the body's ability to move well. It educated me to understand the importance of a cross boundary approach, i.e. when and how did full gait assessment, chiropractic, physiotherapy, deep tissue massage and orthopaedic surgery combine best, and in what sequence for a patient to maintain their musculoskeletal fitness from children to adults.
It is hugely rewarding to see every day of your working life patients improve from when they started and feel they can get back some control over their mechanical problems. There is also the service of routine podiatry for all the troublesome problems of thickened and fungal nails, corns, verruca and hard skin at the clinic. Whatever your concern, whether you are an individual, business or fellow health professional, please feel at ease to contact us for further information. Or you can book a Triage or Initial Appointment if you prefer with myself or one of the health professionals to clinically assess you as appropriate.
I hope you will find that our team are professionals that not just have the skill set but care very much as well. That is the ethos and foundation of our clinic and has been of my family for generations whom are very determined. We have worked in various clinical arenas between us, built a large hospital or worked within the NHS but always with a view to provide care with the dignity and kindness that makes you feel better and always respected.
