Coronavirus update - updated 25th March
Following robust and urgent government direction to minimise unnecessary contact, and in line with the College of Podiatry guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to significantly restrict treatments and limit all routine care. If you have an appointment scheduled with us, we will be in contact prior to your appointment to provide further advice.
We will be available to contact by telephone and email during office hours (9am-5pm) should you require advice or to request emergency treatment. Our podiatrists will endeavour to give you the best possible advice.
Emergency treatments attended to include:
ingrown toenails showing signs of infection,
wounds and ulceration, or
corns or callus showing signs of potential breakdown/infection.
We will triage all patients by telephone in the first instance and if possible, please could you send photos of your foot problem to our email address below.
Our aim is to prevent development of other problems which require access to GPs & hospitals. Simple podiatry measures can prevent more serious complications and reduces the burden on NHS services. For example, several of our podiatrists are also able to supply antibiotics if required.
From all the team at Instep, keep well and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
