Nicola Blower BSc (Hons), MCPod ,MFPM RCPS (Glasg), MSSF – MSK Specialist Podiatrist

C-19 statement

My clinics at all locations are closed for face-to-face consultations from 23rd March 2020 with a provisional re-opening date of 1st-29th June 2020 (this obviously may change), as it is not possible to comply with government guidance regarding safe social distancing and non-essential travel / interaction whist still seeing patients face-to-face.

All patients with booked appointments during these times will be contacted directly. Whilst we are not able to treat you face-to-face, it is still our priority to try to help you through this period with regards to any pain or foot and ankle issues you may have, so please contact us on 01733 559161 or on info@walkrite.co.uk if you need further advice in the meantime.

Hopefully we will return to clinical activity sooner rather than later.

Best wishes to all my patients in these difficult times.
