We are still open!
At the request of the Health Minister Greg Hunt ‘all Allied Health businesses can continue working and are encouraged to do so. Face to Face services for many remain vital so where possible, we encourage you to continue’.
Richmond Podiatry uphold the strictest of infection control protocols and have made some changes to the clinic to ensure the principals of ‘social distancing’ can be maintained. We will be enforcing strict hand hygeine protocols for all of our patients and staff in addition to our existing protocols.
In addition, the government have encouraged Telehealth consultations for those patients who may be in self isolation or quarantine or do not require face-to-face contact (please let us know if this is your preference). For our elderly or disabled patients, we will also be offering Home Visits if the patient is more comfortable self isolating (in which strict social distancing protocols and infection control will be followed).
Finally if you are experiencing any of the following, please stay home:
- Fever (your temperature will be taken upon entry to the Epworth Centre)
- Sore Throat
- Breathing difficulties or wheezing
- Any other signs of Respiratory infection
