Are you being treated well?
Clean instruments, reduced chance of cross infection.
Whether you are coming to have a foot treatment with the Podiatrist at the surgery or coming for a special pampering treatment with the Beauty therapists we will ensure that unless we are using disposable products then all instruments are sterilised according to HCPC clinical guide lines which recommends the use of an autoclave.
An autoclave is a pressure chamber that is used to sterilize equipment and supplies. When these items are placed inside the autoclave they are exposed to high temperature steam (usually around 132 degrees Celsius or 270 degrees Fahrenheit) for about twenty minutes.
We have a clinical environment where walls doors and floors are disinfected once a week or if required sooner.
We are fully aware of contagious infections and how easily they can be transmitted.
Cross contamination and cross infection is an issue that needs to be addressed and therefore we review our policies on a regular basis and remain committed to the cause.
So Relax in the knowledge that all is Clean and Safe
