Podiatry/Chiropody Appointments During Coronavirus
Podiatrists/Chiropodists are registered allied health care professionals (SEE HCPC>ORG) and are permitted to treat emergencies during the coronavirus outbreak.
Emergency patients are those who currently have or who are at high risk of having INFECTION, ULCERATION, PAIN or INGROWING TOE NAILS. Only after a detailed consultation will the Podiatrist decide if your feet are at risk and an appointment be given.
During lockdown some people are struggling with their feet. It is very important to restrict the spread of Coronavirus. Therefore there will be no online booking, please call 01562 540 203 and I will speak to you directly. Please leave a message if I am unable answer your call.
If you are offered a routine appointment for long nails or hard skin removal, you are at risk of being unnecessarily exposed to coronavirus. Any person offering routine appointments during this time may not be insured to treat you. This is why it's important we conduct a telephone interview initially.
What to expect at your appointment
- PPE worn my me
- Hand gel
- Surfaces wiped between patients
- Spaced out appointments to avoid patient’s bumping into each other
- Air Purifier
- Sneeze Screen between patient and practitioner
