LATEST LOCKDOWN GUIDANCE
Podiatry treatment WILL continue during January / February 2021 Lockdown.
Podiatry has been identified as an essential healthcare activity by the government and consequently Dereham Podiatry Practice will remain FULLY open for podiatry and biomechanical treatments during the present Covid lockdowns.
During this period, the safety of our patients and staff is paramount, and full Covid biosecurity arrangements will be carried out, as we have been doing over the last few months.
Our waiting room and toilet facilities will not be available, and patients need to present at their appointment time at the main door, where they will be triaged for covid infection and then allowed to enter. It is essential that you come wearing a facemask correctly (visors alone do not protect the podiatrist). Treatment will not be available if you refuse to wear a mask (if necessary we can provide a mask).
We will minimise your time with the podiatrist, consistent with carrying out a full and safe treatment and following the governments Covid distancing regulations. Between patients, treatment rooms are extensively cleaned and aired to prevent Covid spread. All treatment rooms have HEPA filtered air exchange systems, which fully change the air every 12 minutes. Each day, all treatment rooms are deep cleaned at the end of session.
We would be very grateful if all patients could pay by contactless card.
At all times, the safety and health of our patients and staff are our main priority. This is an anxious time for everybody but we hope that all can feel safe at Dereham Podiatry Practice in these difficult times.
