Home Visits: AVAILABLE
From June 1st a home visit service is now on offer to all.
Your safety is paramount:
Following evidence that the coronavirus can be passed by merely breathing and talking and that it can stay airborne for some time in an enclosed space, visits will be conducted in a suitable outdoor space (garden/patio) accessed without entering the house. The patient will sit in their own chair, while the podiatrist will bring his own stool and foot support, so there will be no physical contact other than with the foot which will be sprayed with alcohol before and after treatment. Both parties will wear a mask which will be provided if you do not have one.
NB If you or anyone in your house has symptoms of coronavirus or suspects they could be infected please inform the podiatrist and rearrange the appointment..
Bristol Footcare is a practice of Mr. A. Thomson BSc(Hons) MCPod who has been treating a wide range of foot problems for 20 years, having qualified with a degree in Podiatry at the London Foot Hospital, a part of the University College London (UCL) medical school.
Mr Thomson has worked in both the NHS and private sector in the UK and helped establish a diabetic foot clinic for the government of Kuwait.
The practice aims to provide treatment for a very broad range of foot problems, from those simple maintenance needs to the complex needs of diabetic feet and biomechanical conditions.
Please take a look around the website where you'll find information on some of the common foot conditions and some useful advice. If you're still not sure if you need an appointment please call and let us advise you further.
