COVID-19 National Lockdown Update
Open As Normal
John Cookson, Podiatrist is vaccinated against Covid-19

As you may be aware podiatrist have now been made “essential workers” to allow us to provide our service.

Thankfully as a health care professional I can continue to operate through the lockdown.

I must implement strict safety measures in the clinic all of which must be adhered to by patients to ensure the safety of the patient and myself.  The pandemic is not over and measures still need to be taken to ensure the safety of not only people entering the clinic but also vulnerable people at home in our families.

Please take note of the following measures:

Full high standard of hygiene and cleansing will be completed between each patient as always.

All instruments will be sterilised and new set per patient.

Podiatrist will be wearing full PPE equipment.

If you arrive early for your appointment, please use sanitiser provided .

Please then take a seat in the waiting area.

Please understand this is a difficult time for us all and I am doing my best to make this work.
