College of Podiatry updates its guidance to independent practitioners

College of Podiatry updates its guidance to independent practitioners

Following the government announcements earlier this week, the College can confirm that podiatrists can start to see Red, Amber and Green patients as detailed in its Treatment Grid from Monday 1 June 2020, including in devolved countries.

Patients must still be triaged and screened for COVID-19 symptoms and assigned a colour category. This is so that if the lockdown advice from governments changes in the future, the College would be in a position to adapt and advise which category of patients podiatrists could see.

Alongside the updated Treatment Grid and Decision Tree, the College has also updated its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document (you will need to log in to see FAQs document).
