The Community Partnership Scheme aims to increase awareness of osteopathy and the UCO Clinic within the local community and to make osteopathic treatment more accessible to members of local business and community organisations.
Members of the scheme benefit from discounts on UCO Clinic appointment fees for all their members/employees, providing access to high-quality osteopathic care at an affordable rate.
Currently, community partner members typically pay £19 per appointment, in comparison to the standard UCO Clinic fee of £25, and an industry average of £45.
How does it work?
There is no cost involved for our community partners - we simply ask that partners promote the clinic and the discount to their members. Partners must also be a business or organisation with employees/members (we are unable to offer Community Partnership discounts to individuals), and evidence of employment/membership of the organisation must be provided to take advantage of the discounted rate. If partners would like to offer reciprocal deals to UCO students and staff we are very willing to discuss this.
To join the scheme member organisations must simply sign a partnership agreement which sets out the following:
- who will have access to the discounted rate
- what identification must be provided to claim the discounted rate
- who the point of contact for the partner organisation will be
- the renewal date for the partnership agreement.
Community partner organisations can also opt-in to receive our occasional community partners e-newsletter which provides updates on UCO Clinic news and special offers.
We are also happy to provide promotional materials, osteopathic talks and demonstrations to community partners to further promote osteopathy to partner members.
