Rehabilitation during the pandemic using remote therapy
Owing to the current restrictions imposed on face-to-face physiotherapy consultations and treatment, our Milestones Clinic team have been using many varied ways to continue to support our clients while following the current government guidelines to minimise the negative impact on non-Covid-19 patients.
We are able to work within the legal, regulatory and professional frameworks that guide the safe management of our clients, the safety of the wider public and everyone working for and on behalf of Milestones Clinic.
We are successfully using the ‘virtual first’ approach with remote consultations utilising tried and tested digital platforms e.g. Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp and FaceTime.
These new ways of working are becoming embedded in our service to support rehabilitation going forward.
We are also able to offer some clients face-to-face appointments both at the clinic and in the community, working to a new set of working guidelines and protocols set out in accordance with documents from Public Health England to minimise risk to all parties.
