It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of the Birkbeck Clinic
Unfortunately the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have had a devastating effect on many small businesses. Due to guidelines we have been unable to treat any patients for three months and have therefore received no income at all for that period. We initially contacted Bexley Council on 24/3 to advise them we had temporarily closed as part of the lockdown and since that date we have repeatedly contacted them to claim rates relief and grants as outlined by the Chancellor. Despite our pleas we have been continuously ignored. We have also lobbied local MP,s, the Osteopathic governing body has intervened but still we have received no support, rates relief, funding or even communication from either Local authorities or government. Sadly the opposite is the case and instead of assistance we have been pursued for payments of rates, fees and licences. At this time we are still actively trying to lobby for change and we have made an official complaint with regard to Bexley Councils handling of our case. We have been informed that we will not receive a response to our complaint until early July. Their lack of interest in supporting local business and consequently employees has forced us to take this very difficult decision.
The telephone lines are no longer being monitored, however, we can still be contacted via email - - if you have any questions or if we can be of any further assistance
