What do we do:
The Podiatry service is a foot health service which offers advice, support and care based on clinical need.
Most patients are seen in local health centres. We have specialist services for Diabetes, Rheumatology, Musculo Skeletal Podiatry - adults and children, and Learning Disabilities.
Care is delivered in line with best practice and evidence by appropriately trained and clinically competent staff who are registered with the Health Care Professions Council who are an independent, UK-wide health regulator, setting standards of professional training, performance and conduct.
