Your first appointment includes a full medical history and normally lasts one hour. Verruca treatment plans are available. I am fully insured and DBS checked.
Frequently Asked Question:-
What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?
If someone is using the title Chiropodist, it means they qualified before 2003. Since 2003 anyone qualifying will be either a Podiatrist or a Foot Health Practitioner. A Podiatrist will have a University Degree and be registered with the HCPC (the Health & Care Professional Council) and they are really the Doctors of the Feet. Podiatrists can prescribe medications, use anaesthetics and perform surgery amongst other things, in addition to basic foot care. A Foot Health Practitioner should have a Diploma in Foot Health from a recognised college and insurance which covers them to treat the majority of general foot problems. I am a Foot Health Practitioner and qualified at the SMAE. Institute in Maidenhead, which is the longest established Foot Health Training College in the UK.
