COVID – 19 and Podiatry

What are we doing in our clinics about COVID-19?

  • TFC Podiatry remains open to provide service for our patients. We have
    implemented strict infection control measures within our clinics. These are
    some of the things we are doing to keep our clinic safe for our patients and
    staff:
  • With the latest advice from the Chief Health Officer, we would like to
    encourage all of our patients to wear a face mask to appointments if possible.
  •  You will notice all of our Podiatrists will also be wearing PPE during
    appointments. This includes gowns and faces masks during appointments.
  •  Temperature checks on arrival for staff and visitors.
  • We also ask that upon entering the clinic please use the hand sanitiser
    provided.
  • 1.5 metres of social distancing rules are in place throughout the clinic and
    waiting areas.
  • Strict infection control measures remain in place. This includes regular
    disinfection of surfaces within clinical spaces and waiting areas.
  • TFC Podiatry is a low bulk clinic. This means that we have a small amount
    of patient and practitioners onsite at any one time.
