Your feet deserve a little more admiration …….. considering that nearly a quarter of your body’s bones are in your feet! Each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, 10 tendons, 107 ligaments and 8,000 nerves! During an average day of walking the forces in your feet can total hundreds of tons! With this in mind my aim through clinical practice is to deliver excellent foot care to treat a variety of conditions and keep those important feet happy.
Having qualified from The university of Huddersfield with a BSc (Hons) degree in Podiatry I commenced my career within the NHS in Derbyshire. A few years later I relocated to Hertfordshire and spent 18 years in a different role with the latter 12 years primarily safeguarding vulnerable adults from abuse. I have developed the key skills necessary to effectively communicate with a diverse range of people and gather the relevant information required to enable me to make professional decisions. These skills are equally as valuable in my role as a Podiatrist.
Having returned to Podiatry 15 months ago and undertaken a return to practice programme I am now looking forward to the opportunity to work alongside Susan in the Southdown Clinic.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and am a member of The College of Podiatry. My commitment to my clients is to continually update my knowledge and skills by way of ongoing continuing professional development (CPD), to provide the best and latest foot care.
