Do you struggle to find a professional, qualified foot care professional in the Bakewell area?
Do you know the difference between a podiatrist, chiropodist and foot health practitioner?
Where is the foot clinic going to be?
We decided to expand our service into Bakewell because so many of our patients were having to travel to one of our High Peak clinics in search of our expertise.
As Podiatrists we hold degrees in podiatric medicine (no longer diplomas) and have annotations after our titles which allow us to administer local anaesthetic and use and sell approved prescription only medicines. Podiatrist is the newly updated term for chiropodist, which is being phased out. As Podiatrists we are registered and audited by the Health & Care Professions Council ensuring a high level of competence and professional development. The HCPC registration now replaces the previous State Registration. We are also registered with many private medical insurance companies, allowing you to claim back part, or all of the cost of your treatments, so check beforehand. A foot health practitioner is not a podiatrist or chiropodist and is not registered with the HCPC and has attended a correspondence course.
We chose to set up our clinic above Roger Sherwood Hairdressing, not only because the salon has an excellent reputation, but it is is perfectly situated in the centre of Bakewell with the added benefit of parking and lots of coffee shops to tempt you after you attend clinic! If however, you are unable to walk up the stairs to the clinic we are happy to attend to your footcare needs in the comfort of your own home after clinic has closed.
Our aim has always been to improve the foot health of local people by providing excellence in patient care and continually striving to exceed expectations. We have achieved this in the High Peak and have gained a fantastic reputation. We provide a comprehensive service of nail cutting, corn and callus removal, treatment of ingrown toenails, verruca, cracked heels, foot pain and vascular and neurological assessments. We look forward to welcoming you into our clinic from May onwards for all your future footcare needs.
