Podiatry used to be called Chiropody, in 1993 all suitably qualified practitioners became Podiatrists. Our practitioners are members of the College of Podiatry which regulates the profession and upholds standards.
Their professional and comprehensive training as well as their experience both privately and within the NHS enables our Podiatrists to be the foremost experts on the health of the foot, ankle and lower limb.
They prevent and correct deformity, keep people active, relieve pain and treat infections. They can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear.
Feet do a lot of work. By the time you are 50, you will have walked 75,000 miles on them. They are complex structures with many bones, tendons, and ligaments that have to work together perfectly to keep you moving.
By looking after feet our Podiatrist’s improve and sustain the mobility, independence and quality of life for their patients.
