Covid-19 Update

What are we doing to protect you?

During lockdown there has been much soul searching and questioning if I should continue in Practice or not, given the level of investment required and the measures we must implement to ensure the safety of everyone. Although it will not be easy, I have decided not to be beaten and to continue with The Footings and make it as safe a practice as it could possibly be!  In future when attending clinic, you will be asked to:

 • Stand on a disinfectant mat 

• Use the hand gel provided

 • Put on a mask provided 

The Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) worn by the Podiatrist will consist of: 

• Scrubs 

• Disposable apron

• Face Mask 

• Safety Glasses 

• Mop cap 

• Disposable Gloves 

Only one person will be allowed on the premises at a time to ensure Social Distancing unless you are from the same household, or the patient requires a carer. 

• HEPA filtration unit will be constantly on during clinical sessions. 

• Deep Cleaning equipment is to be used at the end of each treatment 

• Whole room Disinfectant Fogging at the end of each session.

 • Sneeze Screens are being installed both in clinical rooms and Reception area to further ensure safety. 

As I am sure you appreciate these measures are gold standard and are being implemented to ensure safety for all concerned. As a result, I have no choice but to implement an increase in fees to reflect that standard. Therefore, Podiatry fees for consultation plus treatment will be £55. Appointments are now being prioritised for the most at risk patients, but extra clinics are being made available so we can catch up with everyone soon.
