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.
