For anyone with an upcoming appointment-
Since reopening in June, I am grateful that the trust patients have in us has not faltered, many have revisited us and have felt reassured that we are doing our utmost to be mindful and careful. The safety of our staff and patients is of paramount importance to us so we have made several changes in the clinic to ensure we offer the safest environment possible:
As you enter the clinic, there is sanitising gel on tap, we ask you to use the gel on arrival and departure from the clinic; a clear screen has been installed over the front reception desk; we have kept seating to the least possible in the area, in order to keep footfall to a minimum and maintain physical distance; the door handles, counter surfaces, treatment couches, etc. are all sanitised after every patient; the treatment times have been extended for all to give us time to sanitise the couches and ventilate the room after each patient.
In response to Government guidelines, I am ever mindful of keeping all visitors to the clinic as safe as we possibly can. We our doing our utmost to protect our patients and staff, with this in mind, upon your arrival to the clinic my reception team will take your temperature with a non contact infrared thermometer. Please don’t be alarmed or offended that we will be doing this, it is merely an informative and protective measure.
We have also registered with the NHS as part of their track and trace endeavours. This works by you, downloading the NHS COVID-19 app, which has been launched to help trace and stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We will be given a code which you can scan upon arrival to the clinic.
Prior to your appointment and before arriving to the clinic you will receive by email a Covid Risk assessment form which I ask you to complete. This has to be done before each appointment. I fully appreciate that this is time consuming,but I hope you understand that it is another responsible measure we need to take.
None of the above is meant to cause concern, rather reassurance that my clinic is a safe environment for all our patients.
We respectfully ask you to attend your appointment on time in order that we can adhere to the government guidelines of physical distancing and help the clinic run on time. We suggest you wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing, leaving coats and bags in your car. We do also have face shields for sale.
“You are the most important visitor to Alchemy.
You are not dependent on us. We are dependent on you.
You are not an interruption to our work. You are the purpose of it.
You are not an outsider to our clinic. You are part of it.
We are not doing you a favour by serving you.
You are doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.”
Adapted from quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Alchemy Health Clinic was founded in 1982, by Dr Nashir Karmali DC, as a Chiropractic clinic and here at Alchemy we tailor treatment for each individual and provide special care for the newborn and to those in their senior years!
Our youngest patient has been only a few days old and our oldest 104 years young!!
We will do everything we possibly can to offer you the best service and treatments possible
Alchemy, in its broadest definition, means transformation and purification: as is the refinement of gold from ore; similarly it is the refinement of health from ill health.
I believe that within each of us is a state of pure health. Our ability to rediscover, maintain and develop our optimum HEALTH, remains a challenge, both for the individual and the practitioner, at the time of illness as well as when one is feeling well!
Come, let us now walk and share this journey together.....
