About the practice

Sawbridgeworth Osteopathic Clinic has been providing osteopathic care in Sawbridgeworth since 1980 It was set up and is run by Neil Mellerick, who has remained as the practice principal since then, and who is currently the sole practitioner. Neil graduated in 1977 from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in London. He initially worked in a busy East London practice while establishing the Sawbridgeworth practice on a part time basis. In 1981 he helped set up the BSO's sports injury clinic, then in 1982 transferred to teaching part time in the BSO's general clinic. He has continued teaching at the BSO one day a week and is now a member of the Senior Clinical Management team. As an experienced osteopathic educator, Neil was one of the first practitioners to be registered with the newly formed GOsC in 1998, following which he was a member of the assessment panel dealing with applications from the main body of the profession. He has gained an excellent reputation with other local healthcare professionals, and maintains a wide referral network for patients requiring additional investigation or treatment. Sawbridgeworth Osteopathic Clinic is open 5 days per week, and we only accept bookings by prior appointment. We aim to provide an appointment within 24 hours of your call if possible, and we offer a regular early evening surgery on Wednesdays. We are closed all day Thursday and on Friday afternoons, but offer appointments on Saturday mornings. Initial enquiries may be made by telephone or e-mail and we have an answering machine to take messages when we are out of the office, or engaged in a consultation. We will always try to return calls the same day or early the next morning and reply to e-mails within 1 day. Regular appointment sessions are 30 minutes, starting on the hour and half hour but a new patient consultation takes longer and is a 45 minute appointment. We do not charge extra for this initial consultation. We always aim to offer some treatment at the first visit but complex cases may require the whole session for examination, diagnosis and subsequent discussion.
