Updated PPE Guidance and College of Podiatry recommendations

Updated PPE Guidance and College of Podiatry recommendations

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the four-nation public health bodies updated guidance on infection prevention and control for health providers who are treating patients who are a possible or confirmed case of COVID-19. Podiatrists should use Table 4 and Table 2 for selecting PPE when treating patients.

THIS GUIDANCE MUST BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR CLINICAL GUIDANCE AND DECISION TREE
