Podiatrists (Chiropodists) can continue to practice during the current lockdown

On the 4th January 2021 the Prime Minister announced that England would return to a full lockdown with immediate effect.

However, access to healthcare is not affected, meaning that Podiatrists (Chiropodists) in England can continue to practice. This includes undertaking home visits and visiting nursing homes.

We want to assure all of our patients that as per Public Health England guidance, we have implemented stringent COVID-19 infection prevention and control procedures for the safety of our staff and patients.   


Despite the unprecedented challenges facing us, we will continue to provide our mobile Podiatry (Chiropody) services across Huntingdonshire.  Appointments will be offered subject to triage by our experienced Podiatrist (Chriopodist). The triaging system is in place to ensure that priority is given to those patients assessed as being at highest risk of developing a foot problem.
