Coping with Covid-19
As a member of the College of Podiatry and the Health and Care Professions Council, we follow the advice given by these bodies in order to enact our practice. Everything from treatment guidelines, best practice measures and advice regarding certain conditions through to insurance and regulation comes from them.
Earlier in the year, the CoP announced that we could only stay open for urgent care. Anybody who knows us, knows the business is new and urgent care is few and far between in private podiatry (rightly so) so with a total lack of patients (and the need to protect a new born son), the decision was made to close up until the situation blows over.
I (matt) have been working pretty much non stop at various sites over the previous few years and had built up a huge patient case load at Bourne and Kirton meaning very little time away from clinics, especially when we started getting The Lincolnshire Podiatry Clinic ready.
In a purely personal aspect, the timing of a break couldn’t have been better, spending more time with family, seeing the little one grow up while having the chance to reflect on, shape and improve the business has been fantastic.
With this in mind, we are very much looking forward to being back, adding to the clinic, improving our service and keeping that personal touch, even through the masks!
