The Foot Care Room has strict hygiene and care policies which enable us to offer treatments to the highest clinical standards.
To book an appointment with your podiatrist, Katie Garrett, please telephone 01642 917169.
Patients have the right to expect to be treated in a safe, clean environment and to know that any reusable instrument has been decontaminated according to the level of clinical risk encountered. The prevention and control of healthcare acquired infections is a high priority of The Foot Care Room and as such is embedded into everyday practice.
All instruments are fully cleaned and decontaminated in accordance with a process outlined by the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. Standard Infection Control Precautions (SICPs) have been put in place to reduce the risk of transmission of micro-organisms during health care activities. These are necessary to ensure the safety of patients, health care workers and visitors to health care settings/environments.
We take our hygiene procedures very seriously and if you ever have any questions or concerns regarding this matter you can ask your podiatrist or contact us
