Appointments are available to be booked in advance. Our online booking service enables you to see real-time appointment availability and choose an appointment time to suit you. This service shows availability more than 24 hours in advance – there may be availability within those 24 hours for emergency appointments so please do call to ask should you have a pressing issue.
Appointments for adults are £60 for an initial consultation, then £45 per session thereafter; with children under 16 priced at £40 for an initial consultation and £30 thereafter. Babies under the age of 18 months old are charged at £25 per session. We also offer concessionary rates for students and the elderly at £50 for an initial consultation, and £40 per session thereafter.
Appointments take place at Ed’s practice:
4 Stonely Drive
The practice is on the ground floor and there is parking directly outside on the drive. Alternatively should the driveway be full please park in front of the house before the driveway. We would be grateful if you would refrain from parking outside the other houses on the street to respect our neighbours.
Most patients self-refer as it is unusual for osteopathy to be available on the NHS, although it is an officially recognised method of treatment. Further information about this can be obtained by contacting your local Primary Care Trust.
For those wishing to take advantage of their private medical insurance, please speak to us about which insurance providers will cover osteopathic treatment. It is also worth checking with your insurer which conditions are covered and what their restrictions are in terms of the length and frequency of any treatment plan.
The first visit will include a full case-history and physical examination before any treatment is started – at each session you will have a brief run-through of recent developments in your condition to re-assess the chosen treatment plan to ensure that it continues to meet your needs.
It is impossible to speculate how many treatments you might require without first conducting an assessment: some people only need a ten minute session to get them back to full fitness, other people require a series of appointments over the space of several weeks or months – we will always advise you honestly.
We offer an online booking service – enabling you to book your next appointment when it suits you. The calendar is updated in real-time with our available appointment slots. Please feel free to call us on 07775 481235 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries you wish to discuss before booking.
