What does our service do?


Podiatry services aim to keep the population mobile, help users keep their independence and maintain their quality of life by providing an expert and complete range of foot and lower limb care, for those with a clinical, medical and/or physical need. This can range from routine corn, callous and nail care to the extremely specialised ‘high risk’ cases such as diabetic foot ulcer care, nail surgery, complex biomechanical assessment and treatment, through to provision of insoles and orthotics.
 

Treatment plans are individual to the user, aiming to resolve the problem or at least reach a level of maintenance and comfort. They also include personalised education, strongly promoting self-care.
