We are open 5 days a week, Monday to Friday (Liz works Saturday mornings).
Usual hours are 9 to 5.30.
We do not have a receptionist but use an answering service for appointment bookings. This local company works normal office hours, but please phone any time, they will return any messages left after hours as soon as possible.
If you have a question you can either phone the answering service who will pass the message on to us. Someone will then phone you back. Or you can email us directly via the contact us part on this site.
There are really two businesses working under the umbrella name of Osteopathy Nelson. Alison, Alf and Liz are one business and Brian, Anna and Nick the other. We manage our practices slightly differently this is explained below:
If you have had an accident part of the costs may be paid by ACC, and you will be responsible for paying us the balance (called a co-payment or surcharge). You can fill in the claim form once you are at our clinic or if you have already seen someone else about your problem, and they have initiated the claim, please bring these claim details with you (ACC45 number, date of accident and diagnosis codes).
Alison, Alf & Liz: We book all new patients in for an initial one hour appointment, but sometimes don’t need all this time in which case we will adjust the fee accordingly.
