Covid-19 UPDATE

Bounce Podiatry is OPEN

 

The College of Podiatry has confirmed that Podiatrists and their clinics can remain open including home visits. 

 

The provision of healthcare and medical appointments are not affected by the COVID-19 tier system or periods of Lockdown, including those who fall under the restrictions in England. 

 

At Bounce Podiatry we adhere to the strict rules, guidance and recommendations from the College of Podiatry and Health England (updated 5/01/2021).

 

Bounce Podiatry has followed all government and the College of Podiatry guidelines about social distancing, PPE and clinic hygiene. All staff have been vaccinated.

 

24 hours before your appointment you must confirm your current health with our Coronavirus Self-assessment Form. A reminder will be sent by email or by telephone call (if no email facility) and MUST be completed and returned.

 

If you have signs of covid-19 you will be asked to self-isolate and contact us in 14 days.

What if I feel unwell on the appointment day?

 

If you feel unwell on the day, please let us now asap by phone and we can discuss how best to progress with the appointment, but do NOT come in if you feel unwell. 

We will be sympathetic to late cancellations during this time but ask that you respect our business by letting us know as soon as possible so that we may offer it to another patient.
