Frequently Asked Questions

We have tried to list a number of questions we regularly get asked at the practice.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us on 01252 545 454.

Consent Forms
• This practice uses consent forms for any invasive procedure such as local analgesics or any form of surgery.
• It is a legal document which states you understand what we are going to do.
• The use of consent forms ensures you understand the procedure and any implications.
• If you need more information or don’t understand don’t sign.

Local Analgesic
• A local analgesic is used to block the nerves which carry the pain sensation to the brain.
• A local anaesthetic is typically applied when either the condition or the intended procedure is painful.
• An injection is used to apply the local analgesic.
• Your Podiatrist will need to check your medical history and current medications before this procedure to ensure your safety.

Disabled Access
The practice is on the ground floor with a small concrete slope to the front door. All doors are wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs (both electric and manual). There is a disabled toilet at the rear of the building. Patients are normally seen using a bespoke hydraulic chair but we can also treat you in your wheelchair.

Home Visits
If you are genuinely housebound we are happy to provide a domiciliary service, this is usually on a Monday afternoon and will incur an additional charge based on travel distance and time taken.

HPC Registration
All professional staff are HPC (Health Professions Council) registered. It is a criminal offence to use the titles “Chiropodist” or “Podiatrist” if you are not registered. Registration requires certain professional standards and qualifications as well as evidence of continued professional development (CPD).
