    Are we or not? Private sector? Government list is so vague, School has no idea, hopefully our society will find out today, I need it in writing apparently to show my school, feeling a bit lost. :(

    You should contact the College/Society - they should be able to provide that info.

    I not in UK and only scan comments on this, but I get the impression that no one is sure yet.

    Apparently the College is about to send an email to members confirming that, yes, podiatrists are 'keyworkers'.

    Are podiatrists keyworkers?

    Are podiatrists Keyworkers?

    The UK government has advised the following health category for keyworkers whose children can attend school:
    Health and social care

    This includes but is not limited to doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, and other frontline health and social care staff including volunteers; the support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector; those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributors of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.
    In light of the current Government advice, The College of Podiatry advises that: A frontline health care worker is a medical professional who delivers essential or routine medical treatment and that includes podiatry in whatever sector it is delivered.
    We would advise you to also follow your children’s school advice. The government is also advising that if it is possible for children to stay at home (not with grandparents or vulnerable people) then do so; therefore, if you do have the facility to keep them home please do so.
    If the Government advice changes, we will, of course, advise members as soon as possible and we would advise you to check back here regularly
