Disruption to local area: Monday 10 April 2017

The Metropolitan Police have notified the British School of Osteopathy that the funeral of Police Constable Keith Palmer, who lost his life during the Westminster attack, will be held on Monday 10 April at Southwark Cathedral.

Due to the scale and sensitive nature of the event there is likely to be a significant police presence and disruption to travel in the area on the evening of Sunday 9 April and throughout the day on Monday 10 April.

This is likely to include:

• security checks within the areas immediately surrounding Southwark Cathedral
• potential road closures and diversions to cars and buses in the surrounding area 
• an increased number of visitors to the area, including members of the police force, VIPs and members of the media.

Both the BSO teaching centre and the BSO clinic are situated just outside the area most likely to be affected, but visitors to either site may experience some disruption as a result.

London Bridge station and Borough station will remain open as usual, but buses in the local area may be affected and members of the public are advised to plan alternative routes and/or allow additional journey time where possible. If you will be on foot in the area, please also be aware that additional security checks will be in place and you may be denied entry or diverted from particular parts of the area throughout the day.

To minimise any potential problems with accessing our sites on the day, staff members and students are advised to carry their BSO ID card with them as a precaution.

Patients visiting the clinic are advised to bring confirmation of their appointment - if you have booked an appointment for Monday 10 April and have not received email confirmation please contact the clinic on 020 7089 5360 or and they will be happy to arrange this for you.

If you are due to visit either of our sites for any other reason and are concerned about access please contact us.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
