πŸ‘£COVID19 UPDATE 1st June 2020 πŸ‘£

​

We have been advised that we can now ease our restrictions on the type of patients that we are treating in our practice. Following advice from the Government and regulatory body (HCPC) our professional body, The College of Podiatry, has advised that we may now start to treat patients who fall into the green category of “mild conditions”. However this does not mean that we are returning to normal.

​

Firstly we must still ensure that we give priority to treating our patients who are classed as Red and Amber as they are at a greater risk of critical limb issues. Our Green patients should be seen only if self care advice or a video call appointment will not be suitable.


The welfare of our patients is a priority to us and we are ensuring that we have the appropriate measures in place for your safety and ours. Decisions on who to treat and when need to be based on the likelihood of a patient developing an infection, wound or losing their limb so thank you for your understanding as we process our backlog and urgent patients. We will be in touch with all of our cancelled patients as soon we can, we are booking a week ahead to allow maximum flexibility in case we become symptomatic.

 

If you have a problem before you hear from us then please contact us on 0141 779 9264

​

Our team is slowly but surely returning to work over the next few weeks and months. Mikey, Stephanie and Graham now have online booking appointments activated on the website.

​

Thank you for your support during this time.

New measures in place COVID-19 protocol for patients

  • When possible, we will ask you to update your medical / consent form digitally from home, if this cannot be done, we can record this for you and bypass signature and accept verbal consent obtained. This is not how we usually complete our form but it limits the devices you are touching for infection control purposes within clinic.

  • Please attend on your own, unless you require a carer to attend with you or if you are attending for a child appointment.

​

​

When you arrive for your appointment –

​

  • Please stay in car and call us when you arrive 0141 779 9264. We will come out and meet you at the entrance. If you have walked, please do the same and wait outside. Please bring an umbrella if needed. Our social distancing measures have to be in place to keep the building safe for staff and patients.

​

  • Please don’t arrive too early for your appointment as we will not be able to take you. Also, please don’t arrive later after your apt time as we won’t be able to take you.

​

  • Please leave personal belongs such as bags, jackets in the car or at home.

​

  • When you arrive at our clinical building, please do not touch the front door, it will be opened for you by the receptionist / podiatrist. The door will be locked at times to limit the amount of people entering at certain times of operation.

​

  • You will be asked to sanitise your hands on entry and exit.

​

  • Windows will be left open to improve circulation within the building. Please bring a jumper in case it is cooler. Weather permitting.

​

  • Please pay by card if possible, to reduce the handling of cash.

​

  • If you have a face mask, we are encouraging patients to bring and wear this or a face covering if they can. We will have our PPE on when you arrive.

​

  • Our appointments are spaced out so that we can reduce the amount of people within the building for your safety.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

We hope to see you soon.

Stay safe and well.
