Community Podiatry Pathway: COVID-19 update
In line with national guidelines, we are not currently accepting referrals for routine podiatry conditions.
Our urgent service will accept the following criteria:
- Patients with foot wounds that require podiatry input.
- High risk patients (including patients with diabetes) with callus and/or vascular insufficiency who are at immediate risk of ulceration
- Infected ingrown toenails which require nail surgery
- Patients with urgent diabetes foot wounds or suspected critical limb ischaemia should be processed via agreed urgent secondary care pathways.
We are also delivering a podiatry advice telephone line and email service.

Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who have been trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
They help keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
Our Podiatry service offers preventative and general care for people who have a foot problem combined with an underlying medical condition. To access this service you’ll need to be referred by a healthcare professional.
