About

Podiatry/chiropody as a profession, is aimed at treating foot problems, and addressing their causes. This can involve the removal of a painful corn, and perhaps the prescription of an orthosis or support to help avoid its recurrence. Advice will be given on all aspects of your foot health and footwear. A follow-up appointment may be necessary.

More about us

Treatments

Your initial appointment will include the podiatrist / chiropodist assessing your foot problem, leading to a diagnosis and future care plan. Information about your general health such as medication taken (prescription list) is important for the podiatrist, as many health problems can be reflected in the feet.

Your initial appointment lasts up to 45 minutes and includes treatment with advice, guidance and support.

Treatments are offered through a Clinic Service.
