Coronavirus Situation

We have continued to stay updated with reports from the Public Health England (PHE) and the WHO about the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure we continue to follow the recommendations being made by health officials and stay aligned with the best practices during this time for the health and safety of our patients and The Footcare Centre Team.

THE SURGERY REMAINS OPEN FOR ESSENTIAL, URGENT OR EMERGENCY CARE ONLY 

We have taken extra measures to ensure a safe environment for those visiting the surgery.

Steps Taken So Far

We have always diligently upheld practices to reduce the risk of infection transmission in the surgery and currently we are striving to go above and beyond during this exceptional time. We continue to use hospital grade cleaning products throughout the day and ensure all surfaces are thoroughly disinfected with each patient visit.

Extra Precaution Going Forward

Going forward all patients will be screened when confirming appointments and on arrival.

When confirming appointments, we will specifically ask patients if they are displaying signs of high temperature, shortness of breath or continuous coughing.  If confirmed we will request they do not attend their appointment, ask them to self-isolate for 7 days, and schedule an appointment for at least 3-weeks later.

If a patient arrives at the surgery displaying signs of high temperature, shortness of breath or continuous coughing, we will give them a mask, ask them to self-isolate for 7 days and we will contact them to reschedule their appointment.

Visitors To The Clinic

We will be asking that ONLY THE PATIENTS enter the treatment room. We request patients do not bring additional guests or family members with them unless absolutely necessary. We will avoid congestion and maintain spatial distancing by requesting additional family or guests do not wait in our waiting room, but rather choose to wait in an alternate low density area outside the surgery such as their car to minimise the number of people in the surgery.

We will continue to do our utmost to protect our patients and The Footcare Centre team during this time and thank you for your understanding.

Please let us know should you require any assistance.
