This service offers assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot conditions, with advice as required. Clinics are held on Tuesdays and the service is by appointment only. Patients can access Podiatry services by the completion of an application form, which is completed by a health care professional, either from the Surgery or Podiatry Clinic.
All Patients are given a standard assessment to determine the level of Podiatric need and the medical risk status. Most foot problems are treated, although some conditions may require an onward referral to a specialist clinic.
All patients can also expect to be reassessed annually to ensure any medical history is kept up to date. Social nail cutting is not undertaken by this service. If there are basic nail requirements and no medical risk factors, relatives and carers are expected to help with basic nail care.
