About Foot Care
Temporary pausing of new foot care referrals
Rideau Community Health Services is temporarily pausing the intake of new referrals for routine foot care (foot care nurse), as we are unable to keep up with the current demand. Clients are now waiting up to 12 weeks between appointments (optimal revisit rate is 6 weeks maximum). We will communicate out to all primary care providers in LLG when we are once again open for new routine foot care referrals.
Note: RCHS High-Risk Chiropody Program (ulcers, open wounds, infection) remains unchanged, so please continue to refer.
