Sportswise Coronavirus Update - We offer remote consultations only!
We have kept Sportswise open as long as possible for face-to-face consultations because we know how important a role it plays to so many of you and for our community. However due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), it has become clear that for everyone’s health we need to stop hands-on treatment. We acknowledge that pain and disability are distressing but the risk of spreading the virus must supersede the need for your treatment at this time. As such we will be temporarily closing Sportswise with from Tuesday 24 March until further notice.
We can continue to support you through online video consultations using Skype
Are you wondering how video consultations work? Alison has written an article where she explains why remote consultations can be of benefit when you have an injury as well as what you can expect during your video consultation.

Most insurers are happy to cover your continued care remotely but you will need to contact them to confirm this.
