Yes. If you would like a friend or family member to accompany you please feel free to bring them with you.
Children are welcome to accompany their parents or carers, and we have a small selection of toys for younger children. However some parents feel that they are more able to relax if they do not have to worry about their children.
We ask that all patients under 16 are accompanied by a parent or carer with parental responsibility for the full duration of their treatment.
When we are treating new babies it is not unusual for both parents to want to attend the appointment, we understand this and it often proves helpful if the child is unsettled as it allows one parent to focus on the child whilst the other discusses the case history, or the proposed treatment and advice with the osteopath.
