2021 LOCKDOWN

Covid-19 safety at Dereham Podiatry Practice
from 19 July 2021

On the advice of Public Health England and the Royal College of Podiatry, Dereham Podiatry Practice as a primary healthcare setting will be maintaining its existing (pre 19th July) Covid-19 safety arrangements.

At present, case numbers of the delta coronavirus variant are very high and rising in Norfolk. Our patients are of a wide age range, with many falling into vulnerable or shielding groups. Only 62% of our population has been vaccinated, so that our younger patients may not yet be protected, and the inoculation is not fully effective for everybody. We wish to remain cautious in our response to the July 19th lifting of Covid regulations to protect both our patients and staff. We know from canvassing our patients that you are fully supportive of our response.

The present arrangements will stay in place, so that all patients entering our premises will have to wear a mask, the waiting room will remain unavailable (you will be called at the door for your appointment), and the toilets will not be available.

We will keep you Covid-safe by maintaining our intense cleaning programme, distancing patients in the Practice in time and space as well as keeping treatment times to the minimum, good ventilation, and using HEPA filtered air in the clinic rooms. All staff will remain in high level PPE protection, both for their safety and yours.
