ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN CLINIC AND AT HOME!
As a responsible Healthcare professional at this time of uncertainty regarding the Corona-virus, I would like to assure you that all appointments are spaced out to allow ample time for disinfection between patients, and that the correct personal protective equipment is being used at all times.
There are facilities for handwashing, antiseptic hand-gel is available, and as usual, all instruments used are either single-use or sterilised for each person.
For those who are still remaining at home and are unable to come to the clinic, a home visit can be arranged, again all necessary precautions will be taken, following the recommended guidelines.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
Look after yourselves, and keep safe.

What is the difference between a chiropodist and a podiatrist?
Nothing at all, they are exactly the same. Both are health care professionals registered by the HCPC (Health Care Professional Council) and entitled to use the protected title Chiropodist or Podiatrist. They are trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs and are qualified following a lengthy university training.
What is the difference between a Podiatrist and a Foot Health Practitioner?
A Podiatrist is a registered healthcare professional, but a Foot Health Practioner is not, however the latter will have undertaken some basic training in foot care but will need to refer onto a podiatrist if further or more complex treatment is required.
