The Podiatry Service offers assessment, diagnosis and treatment of problems associated with the foot and lower limb. We help patients to maintain their own foot health through advice, education, and support.
We offer care for people with medical conditions that mean their feet are 'at risk‘ of developing complications such as foot ulceration, or people who have significant foot problems.
If you would like to find out how to look after your own feet, please see our routine foot care video below.
Referrals to the podiatry service can be made by using the ‘Referrals’ button on this webpage. Alternatively, patients can call Locala’s Single Point of Contact on 0300 304 5555 to make a referral.
Patients who are newly referred to the service will be offered either an initial phone call or a clinical consultation, where we will assess your needs. If you have any questions about your care, please contact Locala’s Single Point of Contact on 0300 304 5555.
Patients are regularly asked about their experience. Locala respects the privacy of our patients and their carers and is committed to listening to a diverse population. Therefore our surveys are anonymous and include equality and diversity questions for monitoring purposes only.
Patients often take part in completing patient stories, where they speak to a member of the Engagement Team and tell us all about their experience of using a service. A recent patient story completed with a podiatry patient told us that they are providing a ‘friendly’, ‘first class’ service.
Patients have said:
“Nothing could have been better the Podiatrist’s that removes my sons toe nail we’re so lovely and reassuring. Then the podiatrist that did is dressing today was brilliant too nothing was too much bother.”
“I think you have got it right so don’t change a thing.”
“Highly satisfied always met by kind friendly staff who are ready to help in any way.”
