The Student Clinic Acupuncture Appointments

These appointments are in our multi-bedded Student Clinic, in a curtained cubicle. Please email clinic@citycollege.ac.uk if your condition requires a separate space (subject to availability). You will be treated by our third year students in a highly supervised clinical setting, under the watchful observation of professional Acupuncture supervisors. This ensures our patients receive the appropriate treatments.

 

Your third year Student Practitioner may be male or female. The fully qualified Supervisor, who may be male or female, might also come into your cubicle to confirm the third year Student Practitioner’s diagnosis. On rare occasions, there may be one or two further Students on Clinical Observation training days, and these also may be male or female.

N.B. We are not able to guarantee a male or a female Student Practitioner and/or a male or a female Supervisor.

 

Please note our Student Clinic is on the 2nd floor. There is no passenger lift in our building.

 

For your safety, appointments will be managed in order to allow for sanitising the treatment cubicles between Patients.

 

Acupuncture appointment costs are:

£20.00 per treatment

£15.00 for concessions (Retired/Unemployed/Student)

Payments are accepted by debit card or cash. We are not able to accept credit card payments for Acupuncture treatments.

 

Please note that your first appointment will last approximately 120 minutes, as you will go through the full Initial Consultation. Please familiarise yourself with the information required in the forms that you will be sent in advance of your appointment. You will be able to complete these forms with your Student Practitioner on arrival for your first appointment. Follow-up appointments will take approximately 90 minutes.

 

Acupuncture requires a Patient to remove or loosen various items of clothing, but your modesty will be preserved at all times with the use of screens whilst you are changing, and only the area being treated will be exposed. Our Acupuncture Student Clinics do not provide towels to cover Patients during treatments. We are allowed to place some of the disposable paper treatment couch roll over our Patients, so if you feel you might prefer to use a towel/shawl/pashmina during your treatment, please do bring your own towel/shawl/pashmina with you to your appointment.

Cancellation Policy

Please note that our Student Clinic appointments are always very popular. We have a minimum 24-hour advance cancellation policy. If you book an appointment and you find that you are unable to attend, please email us immediately to cancel, and we will then be able to offer your appointment to another patient. If you cancel less than 24 hours prior to the appointment, please be aware that we do charge the full amount as a cancellation charge.
