For over 20 years Street Feet has been providing a home-visiting (domiciliary) podiatry service to people living in the Reading, Basingstoke, Newbury & Winchester areas. In this time we have provided foot-care to people in private houses & flats, care & nursing homes, commercial offices & shops, with even the odd visit to a narrow-boat on the River Thames.
Why home visits
Although we may not be able to offer certain specialist treatments, there are a few benefits to having a Podiatrist visit you at home. The main one is that you do not have to travel anywhere, which means you have no transport or parking costs to incur. It also means that if you have painful feet, or mobility concerns, you don’t need to worry about physically getting to a clinic – the emphasis to arrive on time lies with us.
How we are working during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak
The Coronavirus pandemic continues to be a headache for us all. To ensure the continued safety of you & our staff, we are following guidelines set by Public Health England.
To minimise any potential contamination to your day-to-day living space, when we visit we would like to work in an area that has lots of fresh air. This can be in the garden, a conservatory, a porch or even a garage.
The only part of you & your house we need to touch is your feet & the floor. Before we arrive, we would request that you have a chair in a spacious area for you to sit on (we do not need a chair as we bring our own). As the virus is transmitted by being in close proximity to one another, we have fine tuned our practices to ensure we spend as little time as possible actually in physical contact with a patient.
We will don eye/face protection, a mask, an apron & gloves before we approach you to undertake assessments or treatment. We would recommend that you wear a face mask whilst any physical treatment is being undertaken.
To ensure minimal contact with your home, we will not wash our hands in your house, but will use alcohol gel before & after treatment. In addition, all equipment that we have used (leg rest, stool, bag, etc, will be thoroughly disinfected following treatment.
