Podiatry consultations are taking place by telephone or email.
If you have any concerns about the health of your feet please do not hesitate to contact the clinic.
We are only open for emergency appointments.
If you have high risk feet, diabetes or urgent need, you can still be treated especially if they are at risk of ingrowing toenails, ulceration/breakdown or infection.
This would also include those that are in a vulnerable category who are over 70.
As Allied Health Professionals we have been advised to remain open to emergency appointments by our regulatory body. This will help relieve the burden on the NHS and maintain your foot health.
Podiatrists are key to the successful management of foot & lower limb pathology, supporting the management of high-risk foot patients.
Podiatry appointments during Covid-19 (Corona Virus)
Podiatrists are key to the successful management of foot & lower limb pathology. Supporting the management of high-risk foot patients, to help avoid complications such as ulceration and specifically infection is essential. With this in mind, we advise the following:
- If you show any of the signs of covid-19 infection you must self-isolate for 7 days, if any of your household show symptoms you must self-isolate for 14 days.
- All routine and non-urgent treatments and assessments will be delayed until further notice for patients with low risk feet. People with concerns about their condition can be offered a remote consultation.
- Patients with high risk feet diabetes or urgent need can still be treated especially if they are at risk of ingrowing toenails / ulceration / breakdown / infection. This would also include those that are in a vulnerable category who or are over 70.
- The Podiatrist will undertake a risk assessment on each patient, before a decision is made to treat.
- If a patient requires urgent Podiatry treatment but has or is suspected of having Covid-19 the Podiatrist will not treat you. You are advised to call 111.
- Prior to the day beginning, all patients booked will be screened as to their health, presenting complaint and risk, to assess if their appointment is required.
- Appointments will be staggered to minimise contact between patients. Please wait in your car in the car park until the Podiatrist advises you to enter the clinic. You may also be asked to wait in a separate room.
- A home visit will be available to high risk patients who are unable to attend clinic at the discretion of the Podiatrist.
- Please do not hesitate to contact the clinic with any concerns about your foot health.
- We thank for your cooperation in helping us all stay safe and well.

Chiropody / Podiatry
In the U.K. Podiatrist is the new name for Chiropodist. The name was changed in 1993 and now the terms Podiatry and Chiropody are protected by law.
Podiatry is a constantly evolving profession. Extensive training over a 3 year full-time course and continued professional development after graduation, enable podiatrists to treat a wider variety of foot and lower limb problems.
