When arriving at the Harrison Clinic, you will be met in reception, where we will register you with our clinic. Children and babies are very welcome at our clinic and we are very used to having them around. You will be offered drinks and invited to make yourself comfortable in our waiting area. Your practitioner will then collect you and take you to one of our treatment rooms.
Our team covers a broad spectrum of treatment modalities and each will have a slightly different way of conducting your appointments. However, all initial appointments will involve taking a full and thorough case history. This will involve finding out about your present problem and its history, your lifestyle and details of your general health and well being. This will be conducted in a relaxed way and you will be invited to ask questions throughout.
If you are seeing one of our osteopathic, physiotherapy or massage team, they may need to examine you at this point. They will be looking for the cause of your complaint and more importantly any underlying problems. You may be required to undress to your underwear in order for your practitioner to examine you thoroughly (gowns are available). If you are uncomfortable doing this, please let the practitioner know.
After your examination, your practitioner will discuss their findings with you and recommend the best course of treatment. If appropriate, treatment will be carried out at this first appointment. If any further tests are required to aid diagnosis, they can be arranged for you either privately or through your GP in the case of NHS tests.
We encourage you to ask questions at any time throughout this consultation and of course during any subsequent visits to us.
Our receptionist will arrange any future care that you may need at your best possible convenience. You will be provided with our welcome pack containing all our contact details should you require any help between appointments or in the future.
Care at The Harrison Clinic is always designed with your very best interests at heart. It is not The Harrison Clinic’s intention to replace the care of your GP or the medical profession. We positively encourage communication with all health professionals.
