What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?

A Chiropodist is only allowed to cut toenails and remove hard skin. A Podiatrist is a lower limb and foot specialist. This means that their scope of practice extends to dealing with high risk diabetic patients, rheumatology, paediatrics and nail surgery. A Podiatrist will also be trained to carry out gait analysis of the lower limb and foot, allowing for biomechanical assessment and diagnosis of chronic pain.

I am so embarrassed my feet are such a mess. Can you help me?

Everybody thinks they have really bad feet. Rest assured that the Podiatrist will have seen somebody with much worse feet than yourself, so please just relax and don’t worry! Remember, we work with feet all day and everyday.

I work 5 days a week, so when can you see me?

We run a clinic every Saturday, so if you work during the week, we can still see you.

Can I pay by credit/debit card?

Yes, we accept all major credit and debit cards. Currently, American Express payments can only be accepted via our online booking system.

I want to be seen by the same podiatrist every time. Is this possible?

This is not a problem. We also believe continuity of care is better if the patient sees the same Podiatrist each time they come as both will be aware of the existing treatment plan that is in place.

Are you suffering from toenail or foot problems?
