Emma Thorpe

Foot Health Practitioner.

My Sole Purpose is to keep your feet, Healthy, Fit and Fabulous!

I manage most aspects of foot care from toenail cutting to diabetic foot care. This includes reducing thick nails and hard skin, removing corns, treating verrucas, looking after involuted nails, treating ingrowing toenails (non surgical), many fungal infections including Athlete’s Foot and high risk foot assessments.

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.
