** Covid- 19 Update **
Regarding Podiatry and essential services, the following statement has been released by the Ministry of Health.
“Podiatry services are non-essential with the exception of acute care, for example in the case of someone with diabetes. Therefore you must cease all non-essential face to face contact, and only treat people face to face who have acute needs.”
It is the view of PodiatryNZ that all acute care cases be referred to secondary care.
If you have Diabetes and concerns please contact Bay Feet and I can put you in touch with Secondary Services. You can also contact your GP or to call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.
PodiatryNZ members are urged to comply with the intent and advice from the government. “Everyone should stay at home. This is the best thing we can all do to stop the spread of COVID-19. This will save lives.”
To all current and future patients, PodiatryNZ recommends that all members in private practice suspend all face-to-face consultations immediately and cease physical practice completely when the Alert Level 4 is implemented.
Bay Feet will now be closed for at least 4 weeks as part of a nationwide self-isolation, beginning in 48 hrs.
If you believe you have an emergency, please contact your GP / Medical Centre.
If you need to contact me please phone 06) 845 4774 or email and I will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
Four weeks is a long time but together we can slow the spread. Please take care, be kind and look after yourselves #Uniteagainstcovid19
