Prahran Foot Clinic along with other allied health services will remain open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The Australian Minister for Health, The Hon. Greg Hunt MP, confirmed that all Allied Health clinics will be able to remain open and are encouraged to do so. Utilising Allied Health services reduces demand on General Practitioners and hospitals during what is a very difficult time.
Prahran Foot Clinic will continue to provide treatment whilst implementing additional infection prevention and control measures. All staff have undertaken the Department of Health COVID-19 Infection Control Training and in addition both Podiatrists are Registered Nurses making Owain and Jesse acutely aware of maintaining our gold standard infection control standards.
We encourage anyone who is experiencing lower limb problems to consider arranging to see one of our Podiatrists as opposed to placing undue pressure on General Practitioners or hospital emergency departments at this time.
