FAQ - What is a Podiatrist?

Frequently Asked Questions

A Podiatrist spends 3 or 4 years at university learning specifically how the foot works when you walk and run. Podiatrists are autonomous healthcare professionals who aim to improve their patients’ mobility, independence and quality of life. They assess, diagnose and treat people with problems of the feet, ankles and lower limbs. Only clinicians who have completed the extensive university degree course and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) can call themselves a Podiatrist or Chiropodist.
