In light of the current Government advice, The College of Podiatry advises that: A frontline health care worker is a medical professional who delivers essential or routine medical treatment and that includes podiatry in whatever sector it is delivered.
Please note it is advised to follow the Royal College of Podiatry decision tree as part of the risk assessment before proceeding with every treatment.
We wanted to reassure all of our patients, in these trying times, about the high standards of podiatry practices we have already been working to for the longest time. As a practice we work tirelessly to ensure we meet the high standards that are expected of us.
We do this because this is a huge part of our values as a practice, and not because we are told to do it by the regulators.
For that reason, all our patients should feel confident that they are safe at our practice. You may have already observed many of the stringent standards we work to first hand and of course many procedures designed to protect both you and our team members also take place without being seen in the surgery.
We have just won top awards this month for excellence, including a 3 rated 50 point checklist incorporating, hygiene and cleanliness, of which we are scrupulous and we have been receiving awards for some years now. In addition, I was asked in a letter from the houses of parliament, when David Cameron was P.M. to appear as an expert for the Private Healthcare raising healthcare standards. A copy of which can be seen on our gallery page.
I hope this goes some way to reassuring you and gives some confidence that you feel safe in our hands.
We have just received a delivery of newly developed hand sanitiser for use at our clinic :-
Clinisept and Coronavirus
In response to the many enquiries we have received regarding the effectiveness of Clinisept+ against Coronavirus, Clinisept+ has been rigorously and independently tested and proven to be highly effective in killing all enveloped viruses, including Coronavirus, in under 15 seconds.
Clinisept+ is a new chemistry and therefore not yet registered as a skin disinfectant. However, Clinical Health Technologies is working towards attaining this accreditation which would enable us to legally state that Clinisept+ is rapidly bactericidal, fungicidal, viricidal and sporicidal – as per the independent test evidence.
Given the exceptional situation with Coronavirus and Clinisept+’s ability to protect against infection, Clinisept are currently in discussion with the authorities regarding the wider use of Clinisept+.
