Hello to my wonderful clients. How are you all doing? I’m sure that you were all pleased to hear that the Prime Minister recently announced that many of us will now able to start cautiously returning to work. I’m pleased to say that this includes my team and I. However, our revised opening hours will be kept on review and may change as we continue to get medical updates from our governing bodies; GOV.COM, NHS and CoP (College of Podiatry).
As some of you may have seen from our last blog post, we have been able to treat some emergency appointments during the lockdown. Although we cannot see all patients, I’m pleased to announce that we are now able to include a further group of patients.
When booking appointments, strict triage rules will continue as we prioritise our appointments.
– Are at risk of ulceration
– Are at risk of the break-down of ulcers
– Patients with infections
– Patients experiencing severe pain
We are also able to accept patients who are key workers, who if not treated, would not be able to continue to work.
If you need to book an appointment at our clinic or arrange a home visit for those eligible, please call 01226 759660. A surcharge of £3 per appointment will be added to all appointments.
To make your visit as safe and as efficient as possible, we ask that you follow the below protocol:
– Please arrive just on time – our waiting room will not be available during this time.
– Please arrive to your appointment alone or ask your chaperone to wait outside.
To minimise the risk of infection, we are adhering to the strictest of hygiene practices as usual. Additionally, we will be allocating extra time in-between appointments to allow us to clean our workspace and reception area thoroughly.
We will also be wearing PPE including aprons, double gloves and face protection.
We appreciate if payments are made by card where possible.
