COVID-19 Pre-Assessment Form

Due to the increased volume of phone and email queries about Podiatry Service Provision, we have decided to run Emergency podiatry clinics in-line with criteria announced by the HSE.

We understand our patients are concerned for themselves and their loved ones and we can assure you we are doing everything we can to operate as normally as possible in these extraordinary times, while at the same time minimising the risk of exposure to our patients and families.

Our Emergency Clinics will have strict pre-assessment criteria which will keep us and our families safe. Our usual high standards of de-contamination, sterilisation and general disinfection between patient appointment slots remain in place.
