Podiatry

Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of common and more complex lower limb conditions associated with the toenails, soft tissues and musculoskeletal system with the purpose of maintaining or improving foot health (Farndon, 2006).

At the outpatient clinics we can provide gait (the way a person walks or runs) analysis, biomechanical assessments and manufacture orthotics, and podiatry care including neurological and vascular assessments and nail surgery.

Our inpatient service covers all wards focusing on wound care and pressure relief, as well as providing routine podiatry care. We are part of the diabetic foot ulcer ward round carrying out neurological and vascular assessments when necessary.
