Diploma in Podiatric Medicine 1992. Member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists since 1992. Registered with the Health Care Professions Council. This is renewed every 2 years.
To maintain registration I have to prove Continuing Professional Development, by attending Podiatry Conferences and study days on various specialities relating to Podiatry. To comply with NICE guidelines and infection control measures.
I have been caring for people since the age of 18, originally as an SRN and then as a Podiatrist. I have gained a lot of knowledge of medical conditions and foot problems over the last 26 years.
My main approach is to treat foot problems, to provide comfort and to prevent ulcerations to the feet.
This caring nature of mine, spills over into my spare time with helping injured birds.
I deliver my professional and friendly podiatry services from my home-based clinic located in the Oakdale area of Poole.
With treatments available for many podiatric conditions and a raft of satisfied customers, I am confident my services will improve your foot problems.
Understand the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist
Chiropodists and podiatrists, deal with the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the lower limb and are qualified to treat people with arthritis, diabetes, nail surgery and sports injuries. They work with people of all ages but play a particularly important role in helping older people to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.
Podiatrist and State registered Chiropodists have to undergo a 3-year full-time training and be registered with the Health Care Professions Council. These qualifications are necessary for employment within the NHS.
