Covid-19 update: acute patients can book appointments.

As a result of the release of the Government’s Recovery Strategy on 11th May, we have decided to resume face-to-face consultations for patients who need urgent care, should they choose to do so. Any decision to offer urgent face-to-face care will be taken in consultation with the patient and is likely to be made in situations in which, for example, the patient is experiencing escalating pain and progressively worsening symptoms that do not respond to conservative management or medication as expected, or is suffering with symptoms which would otherwise result in face-to-face contact with another healthcare provider (e.g. GP, A&E, or walk in centre). Each situation, which may include other conditions, will be subject to an individual decision by the chiropractor and patient.

Patients will be asked to wear a face covering, and to assure that they are not experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid-19 (high temperature, and/or a new, continuous cough). Our chiropractors will be wearing full PPE, and the treatment room sanitized between appointments to insure a safe environment.

Please call 01373 463098 if you require further information or an appointment.

Welcome to the site of Frome’s original natural therapy clinic which was established in 1982. We started practicing on the ground floor of our house in Oakfield Road in the days when chiropractic was little known and very often frowned upon. Despite this, patient numbers rapidly increased, and by 1989 we outgrew our premises and moved to a purpose built clinic in Bridge Street, where we have remained for over 20 years.

Over this period of time there have been enormous changes particularly in the chiropractic profession: a Parliamentary Bill was passed, the Chiropractors Act, in 1994 which officially recognised the practice and insured that only qualified people could call themselves a chiropractor. The General Chiropractic Council was established soon after this which is finally answerable to the Privy Council.

We moved to the new Frome Medical Centre, where we have a suite of rooms on the first floor. The Centre is a wonderful new facility for the community with every conceivable service available giving patients a vast array of treatment options.

We are delighted to be involved in this new beginning for local health care and look forward to further developing natural health in Frome.
