Welcome to Queensferry Podiatry
Welcome to Queensferry Podiatry

As of Monday 1st June we will be phoning our previously cancelled patients who are eligible for treatment. 

 

Following government and professional advice we have now been advised that we can ease our restrictions on the type of patients that we are treating in our practice. Now that we have entered Phase 1 of the pandemic management we are allowed to see a slightly expanded group of patients, including the Green category,  These include:

 

Acute or limb threatening conditions - RED category
Debilitating or life affecting conditions - AMBER category

Mild conditions - (GREEN category).

 

However this does not mean that we are returning to normal.

 

Firstly we must still ensure that we give priority to treating our patients who are classed as Red and Amber as they are at a greater risk of critical limb issues. Our Green patients will only be seen if self care and telephone advice is not suitable. 

Decisions on who to treat, and when, need to be based on the likelihood of a patient developing an infection, wound or losing their limb so thank you for your understanding as we process our backlog and urgent patients. We understand it may be some time since you have had your feet treated but we are required to comply with the UK government guidance, our professional body (College of Podiatry) and our regulatory body (Health and Care Professions Council).

Since lockdown, we have had to cancel over 500 appointments. Kirsty will be contacting patients week by week to allow us to be flexible around other therapists and possible changes to the government guidance. Not all of our podiatrists are able to return to the clinic yet and our opening times and appointments will change. Please be patient if you call the clinic as our receptionists are not able to return yet. Do not come to the clinic unless you have an appointment.

 

If you develop an urgent issue before we contact you then please phone us on 0131 331 1296.

 

We thank you for your patience while we try to contact as many patients as we can. If we contact you and you are unable to attend, then please get in touch when you want an appointment.

 

We have received all of our required PPE and made changes to our clinic, including protective screens, to keep our patients and staff safe. We will not have our normal appointment types just now and during this time a podiatry appointment will be £38. This is due to the extra time required to carry out appropriate cleaning in between each patient and the global shortage of medical supplies causing increased costs. We will not be offering 'Short' appointments and will only be offering a limited house visiting service.

 

We hope to see you soon and thank you for your understanding. Kirsty is also available for telephone advice if you can't attend for a clinic appointment.
