Podiatry Service


Podiatry is a healthcare profession that provides preventative and palliative care to the ‘at risk’ foot and lower limb. The term ‘at risk’ means a foot that, if not treated/monitored, could develop into a serious problem like infection or amputation. Providing education about health is an important step to help people to maintain their own healthcare.

If you feel your foot or ankle problem is due arthritis, a sprain or strain, then please self-refer to our Musculoskeletal Team by visiting 

 If you are an existing patient who is already registered with our Podiatry Service and your condition is deteriorating, please call 01493 809977.

 The ‘Self-help’ section of our website will provide you with information and advice for a range of podiatry-related conditions. If you wish to see a podiatrist, you will need to contact your GP Practice who will refer you to the Podiatry Service if appropriate. If your foot is, or becomes red, hot or swollen, with new pain, you should contact your GP as soon as possible and request an immediate referral to Podiatry.
