Routine podiatry looks to resolve many problems you may have with your feet or lower limb.
It can be carried out at any of our community clinics and covers a broad range of services based on your medical need, which do not require the input of one of our specialist teams.
These services can include:
- Reduction of corns and callus
- Pathological toe nail treatment
- Diabetic foot care
- Clinical assessment of the circulation in the foot and leg
- Wound care
- Basic biomechanics
- Foot health education
- Sign posting to other organisations to ensure you get the right care at the right time
What happens during a routine podiatry assessment?
The clinician will review all necessary aspects of your foot health. To aid with this, it is always good to have an up to date medication list with you, and any information about your medical, surgical and social history which you think may be helpful. Our experienced clinicians will then make a diagnosis based on the presentation that day regarding any problem you may have and may even carry out any necessary treatment there and then.
Routine podiatry may only require one visit, or the clinician may discuss and agree a care plan with you which could involve multiple appointments at the most appropriate clinic location. This care plan may also involve one on one appointments or group sessions to ensure you are provided with the most up to date clinical care possible.
Routine podiatry does not involve social or cosmetic nail care; however, we will always do our best to provide every patient with the right information on how to effectively self-care or point you in the direction of someone who can help.
All treatment is carried out by qualified podiatry registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
