Podiatry, as a profession, is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of the feet and its surrounding structures.

As providers of comprehensive foot care, our podiatry service prides itself on delivering a caring and quality service.  We provide experienced health professionals who will come to you on a regular and reliable basis.  Our comprehensive, ongoing podiatry service ensures that the best care and strategies are put in place to keep feet comfortable, safe and mobile, and to help minimise the risk of unnecessary complications that can easily be prevented.  This is also achieved through the ongoing monitoring of foot health, in particular of those with circulation problems and diabetes.
