Exciting news! The Westhill #amymacpod clinic is reopening on Monday, 1st June. With several strict modifications of course, and by adhering to government guidelines with regards to who I can treat in the clinic… but still, I’m so happy to be able to open the Westhill clinic again!
I have spent the last few weeks updating all documents, risk assessments, ordering a lot of PPE and making sure that all protocols and procedures adhere to those issued by the College of Podiatry.
The number one priority at this time is everyone’s safety, that’s both the patient and myself.
This means I am limited to who I can treat in clinic, as well as the type of appointment that can be made for in-clinic visits.
Who can book an in-person clinic appointment?
This document and traffic light system Who can I see in clinic? highlights who I can see in clinic from Monday 01 June and how patient foot conditions and ailments will be prioritised.
How in-clinic appointments are being booked.
At this time only people in the RED (high risk of ulceration, infections and severe pain) category are eligible for a face-to-face appointment. If you have been assessed as a YELLOW patient group, I will be calling you to chat about your ability to manage your foot complaint, with the possibility of being able to book you a face-to-face clinic appointment.
If you fall into the GREEN category (routine maintenance with no complications), I am unable to see you in clinic at present but am compiling a list and will be in touch as soon as I am allowed to treat you again.
I am continuing to offer video consultations for those who are not able/eligible for face-to-face appointments, these can be booked here.
If you are eligible for a face-to-face appointment, myself or Julie will book you in at the WESTHILL clinic only. The day before your appointment, you will receive a HEALTH and WELLNESS SCREENING form that must be filled out ahead of your visit.
If, on the morning of your appointment you don’t feel well, please DO NOT come to the clinic but email Amy on and we will contact you to follow up.
What to expect when coming to clinic for your appointment.
- Only the patient to arrive and attend the appointment in the clinic. Please arrive on time and not early, the clinic will be locked until the time of your appointment.
- Time has been allocated after each patient to ensure social distancing and clean down of the clinic space ahead of the next patient.
- I will meet you at the door at the time of your appointment and will be wearing full PPE. Temperature screening will take place before you enter the clinic and antibacterial gel will be available for you to use on arrival and leaving the clinic.
- Face masks must be worn and if you don’t have one, I can supply you with one for £1 and this will be yours to keep.
- I will get the doors for you and ask that you (if you can) please remove your shoes yourself when you arrive in the treatment room.
- Lastly, it’s card payments only at this time.
- Any questions?
