We would like to wish all of our patients a very Happy New Year filled with lots of joy and happiness!
Last year may have been a challenging year for everyone with the outbreak of COVID-19 and numerous lockdowns however we have pulled through and are stronger than ever through the amazing support from our patients, staff and local community.
There were a number of great achievements for us here at The Fane Clinic in 2020 that we wanted to share with you all.
February – Stephanie is Nominated for Women in Peterborough Awards.
We started the year with our wonderful Stephanie Burton being nominated for Emerging Leader of the Year in the Women in Peterborough Awards. Stephanie is one of our foot health practitioners and very much loved by all of her patients. Alongside her work here at The Fane Clinic, she is also studying a degree in Podiatry. We are all very proud of Stephanie’s achievements and although she didn’t win the award, we are thrilled her hard work was recognised in her getting through as a finalist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
February – Our very first Continued Professional Development (CPD) Day.
The end of February saw us host our very first Continued Professional Development day. The day was focused around gaining more knowledge on Diabetes. We welcomed Mr Somuz Miah and Mr Kevin Watts who did talks on the importance of foot healthcare on diabetics. The day was hugely successful and not only provided a wealth of extra knowledge for all our staff but a great team building day too.
March – We Welcomed Caroline Harper to The Fane Clinic!
Caroline Harper joined us in March offering her wonderful Sports Therapy treatments alongside our director Ady. Caroline is a wonderful practitioner and we were delighted to welcome her into The Fane Clinic team!
March – National Lockdown
March saw the rise of COVID-19 and the entire country go into lockdown. Although we briefly decided to close the doors of the practice, we are very proud that as a team we worked extremely hard to enforce measures to allow us to once again open our doors and continue to provide our much loved patients with the care and treatment they need.
April – New Website
We were delighted to work with Elara Web in April to transform our website and give it a new lease of life! We added new sections and features to the website to give our patients a better understanding of who we are and what we do. We tried to simplify the usability of the website so everyone is able to navigate around with more ease.
April – Contactless Footcare Packages in Peterborough
Whilst our doors of the practice were closed, our Foot Health Practitioners, Stephanie and Louise, decided to create beautiful Foot Care packages which included lots of wonderful items to care for your feet. Stephanie and Louise delivered these contactless across Peterborough to ensure anyone who purchased a foot care package was able to receive it in a safe way. We wanted to show our support to all of the frontline workers so we have discounted our Footcare packages for all NHS workers.
May – The Fane Clinic Re-opens
With strict protocols in place to protect both our patients and our staff, we reopened our doors! We carefully assessed how we can minimise the risk of COVID-19 for everyone and put in place measures to be adhered too. These included all patients being collected from their cars to minimise contact, temperature checks before entering the clinic and all practitioners in full PPE.
May – Competition for NHS workers in Peterborough
We decided as a way if showing our support and appreciation for all NHS and key workers, that we would launch a competition to give away 2 Foot Care treatments in clinic. We asked the community to nominate keyworkers they felt deserved to win and picked 2 winners from the many nominations!
June – FREE Ultra Cool Foot Gels for NHS Staff
Our hearts really went out to all of the amazing NHS staff who were working extremely hard in the heights of summer and so we decided as a way of saying thank you, we decided to gift as many Ultra Cool Foot Gels as we could. We travelled to deliver these to different hospital departments, ambulance services, surgeries and clinics around Peterborough and surrounding areas. We also offered contactless collections of these for NHS staff.
June – We welcomed Yellow Rose Hypnotherapy to The Fane Clinic!
Elizabeth Lorimer brought a brand new concept to the practice in June – clinical hypnotherapy and life coaching. We love the amazing work that Liz does and her patients feedback is always extremely positive. Hypnotherapy has helped many of our patients to combat many different difficulties in life and we really welcomed the fresh approach that Liz brings. We are currently offering FREE initial consultations for new clients so it’s a perfect opportunity to give something new a go!
September – Mr Somuz Miah joins The Fane Clinic!
Consultant Podiatrist, Mr Somuz Miah joining our team has been a very exciting part of 2020 for The Fane Clinic. Somuz is very highly qualified and brought a completely new realm of services and treatments to Peterborough that were not previously available in the area. He offers treatments such as Toenail Surgery, Steroid Injections, Botox for Hyperhidrosis, Dry Needling and many more!
October – The Fane Clinic guest speakers in Peterborough Parkinson’s Coffee Morning
Stephanie and Louise were delighted to be special guests for Peterborough Parkinson’s Coffee Morning on the 22nd October. The event took place virtually on Zoom and our Foot Health Practitioners did a live Foot Care Treatment to show guests what the treatment entails and the huge benefits this treatment has to those suffering Parkinson’s.
November – Christmas Hamper Raffle for Peterborough Parkinson’s.
Throughout November we raffled off a wonderful Christmas hamper to try and raise lots of money for our partner charity – Peterborough Parkinson’s. With the help of our patients, friends and family members, we managed to raise a total of £204 which we were extremely proud of.
November – The Fane Clinic offers COVID-19 Testing in Peterborough.
We were extremely troubled to hear that people were having to travel hours and paying hundreds of pounds in order to get hold of private Coronavirus tests and so as a medical clinic we searched to find a solution for the community of Peterborough. We were delighted when we were able to bring our COVID-19 Testing service to Peterborough. The COVID-19 test takes a blood sample and gives a result to patients in just 15 minutes with a 97% accuracy.
It’s clear that despite the huge difficulties we faced as a nation in 2020, The Fane Clinic still have many achievements in 2020 to be thankful for. We would like to thank all of our patients for continuing to support us during the epidemic and throughout the past year.
From everyone in The Fane Clinic team, we would like to wish our patients, friends and family a very happy and prosperous New Year!
