Sunderland Podiatry service update
Patients on the waiting list for Sunderland Podiatry services should shortly be receiving a letter.
The Sunderland Podiatry service unfortunately had to suspend all routine podiatry appointments due to the impact of COVID-19 and the Trust is now in a position to gradually restart our routine clinics with all of the necessary safety precautions in place.
They will be advising patients that it is likely there will be a considerable delay before their next review appointment and to ask for their ongoing patience and support at this time.
Patients will be advised not to contact the service and that the Trust will be in touch as soon as it is feasibly possible to offer patients an appointment slot.
They are continuing to offer a limited emergency service for higher risk patients, i.e. those with diabetes, presenting with wounds or ulcerations. However, this does not include routine nail cutting at this time.
For any emergencies patients are being asked to continue to contact the Outpatients Appointment Booking Office on 0191 5410101.
