Adam Smith Podiatry - How do I know if I'm high risk?

Should I book an appointment?...

At this point in time the Covid-19 pandemic is restricting access of many patients to their usual healthcare and the term ‘high risk’ is being used as a method to screen people. However, we realise that many people aren’t aware of what this means to you. This ambiguity is resulting in a great deal of confusion in whether you should seek treatment from us or not. Currently we are operating a reduced service in the clinic and a diminished availability in home visits, this is not only to protect our podiatrists and employees but also in lessening the risk to our patients especially those self-isolating with underlying health conditions. Our current availability for appointments therefore is being managed by whether there is an underlying risk of complications if our patients don't get treatment. We have created a couple of different tools to clarify this and help you seek the right type of appointment that is available for you at this time.
