"The CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) is advising members in all sectors that they can continue to run physiotherapy services during the national lockdown, unless the government explicitly instructs them to stop treating patients. All relevant public health rules relating to social distancing and PPE must be followed to keep clinicians and patients as safe as possible.
Draft lockdown regulations are not expected to be made public until Tuesday 3 November.
To give members outside the NHS the clarity many have asked for, the CSP has sought assurance from Public Health England that all health care can continue in England. We continue to press for this confirmation and have been advised that it has to come from the Cabinet Office.
The prime minister signalled that non-Covid NHS services would continue to run during lockdown. Health services, including those in the charity and private sectors, continued in higher level areas of England when restrictions were applied.
Services based in gyms, leisure or sporting venues, and all non-clinical services, are expected to have to close in England during the lockdown period. Some very limited exceptions may be granted for organised therapy sessions for people with long term conditions or mental health issues.
As clarity is provided by PHE or the government, the CSP website will be updated."
Natascha is a highly skilled and experienced physiotherapist, having attained her MSc in Manual Therapy from Coventry university in 2012. Driven by the desire to help people, she takes pride in providing evidence based treatment backed up by the latest research. She has been the physiotherapist for Leander Club (the oldest non-academic and most successful rowing club in the world) since 2013, where she works with their squad of elite level rowers, and she continues to operate a private clinic in Reading.
Operating out of a private clinic facility in Reading, Natascha at Elite Performance Physiotherapy provides treatment for a wide range of day to day living and sports related injuries. Drawing on a wide range of knowledge, backed by science and passion, treatment is aimed at the individual to get them better and back to doing the stuff they enjoy as quickly as possible.
The clinic is open: all treatments will be conducted with me wearing appropriate PPE to hopefully safeguard yourselves and myself.
Social distancing of 2m between your car or the entrance to the clinic is entirely possible and hand washing facilities and/or gel is available to all patients.
I leave a gap between appointments to allow me to fully sanitise all surfaces that are in use. These arrangements may change without notice should government advice be altered.
