Covid – 19. Update to Patients. We are still open!
Ever since this crisis began, we at the Sussex Foot Centre have taken all measures necessary to protect the health and wellbeing of both our patients and ourselves also. Our decision to remain open has been continually assessed in light of the advice from the Government and the College of Podiatry. As of today, 25th March, the Government has stated that Podiatry and Chiropody clinics can remain open. The release states that exceptions to the closure of businesses and premises are: Medical services (such as Dental Surgeries, Opticians, and Chiropody and Podiatry Clinics).
The decision to remain open has also been taken with the assurance and the confidence that we can provide a sterile and hygienic setting for our patients. We understand just how much our patients rely on us, as many present with a host of complex needs. As such, we are determined to continue treating those at risk of foot infection, those who require emergency appointments, as well as any online and telephone advice. By doing this, we are thus providing crucial preventative care, which will ultimately keep our most vulnerable patients out of hospital and any from harm. Thank you for your continued support at this time. Stay safe.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with Covid – 19, then you must not come into clinic. You are required to self-isolate for 7 days, and if any of your household are showing symptoms, then you must self-isolate for 14 days.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Chiropodist / Podiatrist?
Minor surgeries are carried out by podiatrists, including nail surgery (for ingrowing toe nails), and electrocautery (permanent removal of persistent verrucas, unresponsive to conservative care). In addition we are very proud of our extra training enabling us to administer cortisone injections into the foot and ankle for persistent pathologies which haven’t responded to conservative care.
Alongside routine chiropody and podiatry, we also treat the feet in the context of various systemic conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, peripheral vascular disease, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and many more.
What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?
The profession, like its name, is constantly changing due to the extensive training given to students and the continuing education that enables podiatrists to treat a wide array of foot, lower limb and kinetic chain problems. But never forgetting how the profession started and continuing to treat the more routine corns, callus, and nail care.

Who should see a Podiatrist?
It is estimated that 9 out of 10 of us will experience foot problems at least once in our life, this can happen at any age, at any time. It is important to see a podiatrist before any foot problems become worse. Get advice from your podiatrist about any family history of foot problems and how they may affect you (e.g. crossed over toes, bunions, flat feet, etc).
