The Footstops'  steps to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus

The Footstop has spaced appointments apart so that you will not come into contact with other patients and the clinic is thoroughly cleaned between every appointment. The Podiatrist or FHP will be in full PPE (mask, apron and gloves) and there will be a Perspex screen between you and the podiatrist. All staff members check their temperature at the start of every shift to ensure they are well before starting their shift.

Instructions for Patients

1. Please bring a mask or face covering with you to wear during the appointment

2. If you, or anyone in your household develop any symptoms of the coronavirus (cough, fever, loss of taste and smell) then please call to cancel your appointment. You will not incur a cancellation charge.

3. Please arrive on time; do not arrive early as the waiting room is now closed and you will have to wait outside until the time of your appointment.


4. Do not arrive late as we have to stick to a very strict timing procedure. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late we will refuse treatment and you will be expected to cover the cost of that appointment in full.

5. The main door will be locked, so on arrival please knock and wait patiently for the podiatrist to let you in.


6. Please sanitise your hands on arrival and before you leave the clinic.

7. Please check in using the NHS Track and Trace app using the QR code that is located in the clinic room and waiting room.
