FAQs


Parking

Once you are in Lairgate, proceed along the road until you see the Windmill public house on the right. The turning to crown terrace is just opposite the public house. This turn is a little tight and cars may be coming down the private road so please exercise caution. Once in the private road, proceed slowly to the end and you will see the carpark which serves the office and garage complex. Please park in any available space in the middle of the car park but avoid blocking the access to the garage units.

If you wish, you may choose to proceed further along Lairgate and take the next left turn into Grayburn Lane (one way). About half way up Grayburn lane on the left there is a signed entrance to the public pay and display car park.

Other car parks are available within ten to fifteen minutes walk from the practice.

Home Visits

If you think you need a home visit please telephone and ask to speak to the osteopath. In general, home visits are only made in circumstances where the patient cannot leave the house due to the severity of the condition. Sometimes a home treatment can help, however in many of these cases the best policy is to have a telephone consultation followed by advice for self help. Often the GP may need to be involved to prescribe medication to relieve pain, reduce swelling and relax muscles. Once the patient is mobile they can be examined more easily.

Disabilty Policy

The practice at Beverley is up a short flight of stairs. If you need full disabled access, we are sorry that we cannot provide this here. Mr Larter may be able to visit you at home. Otherwise I would be glad to advise you of other local osteopaths who may have ground floor disabled access. Please call me and I will be happy to discuss your concerns.

Telephone advice

If you would like to find out more about your condition and whether osteopathy can help you, please call and a time will be arranged for you to have a telephone conversation with the osteopath.

Will I need to undress & what should I wear?

You may be asked to remove some clothes depending on the area which is troubling you. Underwear is always left on and in many cases only a small amount of clothing needs to be removed. Some patients like to bring loose clothing or a sports top and shorts. If you are not sure, please ask to speak to the osteopath before your appointment.

Can I bring someone with me?

Some patients like to bring a friend or family member with them. This is absolutely fine, however you should be aware that medical information and details of operations and medications will be talked about. It’s best if the person who comes with you is someone who you know well so you can be relaxed whilst discussing these matters.
