Podiatry covers any painful foot condition or mobility problem related to a foot or ankle condition, especially those complicated by conditions such as diabetes or arthritis.
Podiatrists work to help specific problems and maintain foot health. The orthotics service helps those who need support or correction for a physical deformity or weakness. Our teams can give a full range of advice including taking measurements for supportive footwear where appropriate.
Podiatry covers any painful foot conditions or mobility problem related to a foot/ankle condition and especially those complicated by conditions such as diabetes or arthritis. However, NHS podiatry does not include simple nail cutting for social reasons (e.g. just because the patient cannot reach.)
The podiatry service provides high quality expert advice and specialist treatment for conditions affecting the lower limb and foot. Our aim is to improve independence, mobility and well-being across all age groups. At an initial assessment the podiatrist agrees an individual management plan with the patient for an episode of care. It involves the podiatrist and patient working together to achieve the best outcomes to improve foot problems and maintain foot health. Encouragement and support for self-care is at the centre of all that we do.
