The office will be closed after 5pm December 22nd for the Christmas Holidays. Merry Christmas to all, and hope you have safe and happy holidays! We will resume regular business hours Monday 8th January.
At Podiatry Professionals we consider your safety our highest priority. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we would like to assure our patients that we are taking every precaution necessary in the clinic and following appropriate advice from authorities.
Our main priority is our patients. Given one of our core values is communication, we feel it is important that we give you as much information as possible about the procedures we adhere to in order to maintain a hygienic environment but more importantly ensure the safety of all patients and staff.
Following the advice of Australian Government authorities, Podiatry Professionals are taking additional precautionary measures to minimise risk of coronavirus. These include:
– Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitization of work, reception areas and equipment.
– Providing additional hand sanitizer.
- Increased seat distancing in waiting room areas.
- Use of protective equipment including gloves and masks for the protection of both patients and staff.
– All staff are required to declare their health and travel status – we ask that patients extend the same courtesy prior to appointment.
Given more and more people are required to either isolate, work from home or are choosing to reduce exposure by staying indoors, we have been working hard on developing Telehealth video consults for some time now and we can now announce they are up and running.
Given our mantra is to ‘progress quality of life’ and we feel we can continue to do that via both in clinic appointments and Telehealth online appointments. Isolating at home presents a number of risk factors which can contribute to foot pain including increased bare foot walking, possible weight gain and likely increases in running (given gyms are closed) and this is the time we need to step up and be more accessible to our patients by providing value and direction.
If you feel unwell at any time, we respectfully ask that you do not enter our clinics for the safety of everyone. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience, we will be happy to reschedule your appointment if needed, including providing Telehealth Appointments.
We appreciate your understanding and co-operation during this difficult and uncertain time.
