A patient’s guide to podiatry services​

Common
concerns about
podiatry
treatment

Will it be painful?

Treatment is usually pain free and
should give immediate relief from
discomfort.

Will I get an infection?

All our instruments will be
sterilised or single use. Our
podiatrists are trained to prevent
cross infection and will wear
gloves and aprons for your
protection.

What if I still have discomfort?

We expect our patients to walk
out of the clinic in complete
comfort but if you do still have
problems we will offer you a free
follow up appointment.

Why is it so expensive?

Our podiatrists have spent many
years training and are experts in
their field. Consider how much
you pay for hair appointments or
shoes. Good foot health is key
to maintaining your mobility and
your feet require maintenance
just like a vehicle.

WHY DO I NEED HELP?

I want to walk in comfort and
without pain

I would love to wear open sandals. I just
feel so embarrassed if my feet are on show

I am concerned about developing
problems with my feet in the future.

I’d like to be able to wear different types of
shoes without it causing problems
