Restore chiropodist and podiatry services

Get podiatry treatments going if enough ppe can be sought without affecting the NHS. Most treatments are one to one and working away from the infective end of the patient and practioner. Deep clean between patients and no waiting room use stagger appointments.

Why the contribution is important

Help prevent elderly, vunerable and diabetic patients from possibly needing hospital visits. Keep other patients mobile and active. Keep key workers mobile and able to carry on vital work .

    Agree with safe systems these services and voluntary personal footcare could be re introduced. Vol sector will need assistance with PPE.

    Agreed with the right measures including PPE and deep cleaning plus perhaps no procedures needing aerosols, this should be workable

    It should be possible with masks and gloves to reintroduce podiatry. Most seem to use disposable paper coverings for seats and with masks and gloves It should work? My corns and ingrown toenail are screaming out for this but, on a more serious note, diabetics must be at real risk missing this service.
