Note from Judy Bowen-Jones:
Usually I would take full details of your current health issues and past medical history face to face, as part of your initial consultation. But because of Covid-19, we have been instructed to keep any close contact to a minimum. So, for the time being, I am asking clients to complete this online questionnaire and submit it in advance of their appointment. In this way, we can reserve face to face time for physical examination and treatment.
On receipt of your completed questionnaire, I will call you briefly to discuss any questions.
Before your appointment you will also be required to complete separate Covid-19 Screening and Consent Forms.
