College update following a change to the COVID-19 rules in Wales

Confirmation from the College that podiatrists can continue to practise

Following the First Minister of Wales' announcement on 16 December that non-essential shops and salons will close at the end of trading on Christmas Eve, and that from 28 December, Wales will move into an open-ended alert level four lockdown, we wish to confirm that this does not affect podiatry. Podiatrists can remain open, and can continue to undertake home visits and visits to nursing homes. You must still follow clinical triaging and PPE advice.
