Podiatry and Orthotics

19th March 2020

On government direction the Podiatry and Orthotics Department is now closed to routine follow up review appointments. This will be the case until restrictions on activity are lifted.

We will contact any patients assessed at increased risk or referred as urgent to discuss how we are able to assist them during this difficult period.

Please monitor this page for information which will alert you to when the phone lines are allowed to re-open, in order to book review/ follow up appointments. This will depend on government advice.

If you have an urgent problem, or wish to discuss your concerns, please phone the usual number where you will be asked the nature of your concern and a senior clinician will phone you back.
