What is Podiatry
Podiatry is the management of problems of the foot and lower limb. It is a medical service offering care to those who have specific podiatry problems or medical conditions.
All NHS Podiatrists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
As many people over 60 are fit and healthy and in common with all other NHS services there is no automatic entitlement to Podiatry treatment for those who are retired.
The Podiatry service offers a range of specialist treatments and services including:
- Toenail Surgery
- Wound Care
- Foot Health Promotion
- Provision of Insoles and Orthotics
- Electro Surgery
You can be referred to Podiatry by your GP, at your first appointment your podiatry needs will be assessed, many people only require a short course of treatment/ advice to improve their foot condition and will then be discharged. Some people with more complicated foot problems may require a longer course of treatment.
