Podiatry

*Update

Please note that NHSGGC Podiatry will be operating a reduced service in response to the current Covid restrictions. 

The service is open, and services are being provided differently. Patient consultations are now being delivered in a range of ways to help meet the needs of all patient groups including online, telephone, video and face to face. Click here for more information on what to expect at your first appointment.

Patients may be asked for more information at their first telephone call to help them navigate to the most appropriate service or professional.

Please check out our range of self management support pages found in the 'Help and advice footcare section' in the coloured tiles below.


Welcome to Podiatry

The Podiatry Service in NHSGGC provides triage, screening, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and foot health education to patients with a lower limb condition or a systemic condition that affects the lower limb. The service aspires to be needs led and person centred to support and enable self care where possible. Patients, (and carers and family members where indicated) are involved in the development and delivery of treatment plans where appropriate.

All our Podiatrists are registered by the Health and Care Professions council (HCPC) who ensure that staff meet their standards for training, professional behaviour and health.

 

What is Positively Podiatry?

‘The range of medically linked professional interventions and competencies that deal with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and deformities affecting the human foot’

 From listening to patients and colleagues, many people are unsure about the role of a podiatrists and what to expect when attending an appointment. We want to change that by launching the 'Positively Podiatry' campaign which provides patients and colleagues with simple information about the positive contribution podiatry makes to the health and wellbeing of individuals at all ages and stages of life.   

Our focus is to ‘Protect Limbs and Prolong Lives’.  

 

 

We do this by:

  • Providing care for individuals who have developed tissue damage to their feet
  • Helping people with foot and ankle pain or injury to rehabilitate, enabling them to remain fit and active   
  • Focusing on supporting individuals with their goals to maintain health
