- What should I bring for my appointment?
No, you don't need to be referred by your doctor or specialist. Your GP may recommend that you see a Podiatrist however if you have a particular concern you can contact our patient services team and they can forward your query directly to the Podiatrist.
Of course. We are recognised by all the major insurance companies. Just check your own policy for its terms and conditions.
You must pay after each appointment, unless you have made arrangements with our Patient Services team beforehand. You will get a receipt at the end of each session which can be used for tax or health insurance companies. Please check on the payment methods accepted in each clinic.
Of course, but the cost of a Home Visit will include travel time from the clinic so the cost of treatment may be higher. Please call us for more details.

Podiatry is a branch of western medicine that mostly concentrates on the foot and lower limb. Our qualified Podiatrists carry out routine Chiropody treatments as well as nail surgery and the treatment of diabetic foot conditions. In addition to this, Podiatrists are proficient in Podiatric biomechanics, including gait analysis and orthotic prescription.
Chiropody is the treatment of conditions including corns, callous, verrucae, ingrown nails etc. Our Podiatrists can also carry out these chiropody treatments.
A podiatrist is qualified to diagnose and treat foot and other walking/running injuries. Should your podiatrist feel it necessary they will liaise with your G.P or surgeon to resolve your issues.
Orthotics are customised insoles, made to control foot function and influence how the body works when walking or running. Temporary orthotics are also available in our clinics.
Bring with you shorts (above knees) and one of each of your shoes.
Initial consultations normally last 30 minutes. Follow up appointments for the same treatment will last up to 20 minutes although the clinician my advise on a longer/shorter treatment time based on your condition.
