Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic
Covid 19 - latest update
Following the government announcement yesterday that all non essential business has to close. We have decided we can not open this week and we are now closed.
We will be monitoring the answer machines and are available for telephone and Skype consultations . If you would like to speak to a physio just leave your name and number on the answer machine and we will get back to you within 24 hours. If you would like to speak to a specific physio just ask for them by name.
We will do our best to support the NHS during this time by trying to reduce patients seeking advice at minor injuries or A and E.
Covid 19 update
Like every other business in Scotland I have been in turmoil these past days over whether to close the clinic or how long to try to stay open.
With so many loyal patients still needing to come in for treatment it is a difficult decision to make. And as a business it is equally difficult because the diary is busy. Our client base has not been told to stay away and they are sore and still wanting to book in.
However, at the end of the day like every other employer I have a team of staff and their extended families to look out for and their health comes before everything. And as a country we are trying to 'flatten the curve'.
I hand on heart cannot guarantee safety for my staff and patients and their carers within my clinic. It is impossible for us to treat and keep 2m away from our patients and therefore claim not to be spreading this.
Ultimately it also feels wrong for us to still be operating, albeit while we are taking all the precautions we possibly can, while so many other people in Scotland are taking heed of the request to stay at home. This is not the time to 'stay calm and carry on'. We are all being asked, where possible, to down tools and stay put and we all have to try and do this.
I finally decided yesterday to close the clinic. I am so sorry to have to cancel appointments and let our patients down 'mid treatment' but this decision feels right in every way.
In addition, closing the clinic frees up my physios to go back into the NHS, as they are all trained in respiratory physio, and assist our NHS colleagues in the difficult weeks ahead.
Rob and Kirsty will be in two days next week for the last few patients that really need seen or for people to pick up insoles, tape etc and then we will close on Friday.
After that we will be on hand Monday to Friday to give advice by phone and Skype and we look forward to seeing you all again when this is all over!
Emma -our podiatrist is going to continue a weekly emergency service herself as some of her treatments can't wait weeks.
Please call us if we can help in any way 01786 480048 in the coming weeks.
Thank you all for your support! We are lucky to work in a brilliant community 👍
Stay safe everyone!
As soon as you walk through the doors at Physiofocus our friendly reception team will put you at ease. We want our patients to feel valued and for a small part of a busy hectic day, cared for. Our standard of care and patient satisfaction is reflected in the word of mouth referrals which we rely on and our strong work ethic recognised for over ten years by Investors In People Awards.
Over the past twenty years we have had the privilege of treating every age of patient and we now have teenagers from 1999 bringing their own families along! No two days at the clinics are ever the same. Some days we are helping an older person achieve the range of shoulder movement to maintain them living independently, others we are strapping up an ankle before an athlete heads off to a major competition.
We are registered with all major insurance companies.
