Foot care (podiatry) services provide assessment, treatment and advice for people with skin, nail or mechanical foot problems, and for people with diabetes.

A podiatrist or chiropodist can help you with common foot problems, including ingrown toenails and bunions.

My Treatments

A Podiatrist is skilled, trained and educated to assess, diagnose and treat problems of the foot and associated structures.

We recommend annual foot checks for all members of the family. Podiatrists are skilled in screening and health education, so a visit to the Podiatrist need not always be about sore feet. Your feet and your familys’ foot health are important. Podiatrists are able to provide advice on foot care, health education, gait analysis and footwear advice. Your Podiatrist can advise on workplace footwear the right type of shoes for you, or the most suitable shoes to prevent foot problems. Much of the work of a podiatrist is aimed at prevention and education. If you are diabetic you should be having an annual diabetic foot check. Your Podiatrist can perform this diabetic foot check and provide you with the necessary Diabetic foot care advice.

MChS HCPC

Letter of qualification

Registration with the HCPC now replaces the previous system of state registration. Some podiatrists may have used the phrase “S.R.Ch. State Registered Chiropodist” after their name, but this phrase should no longer be used and they should use the term “HCPC registered”.
