A request for podiatry treatment should be made by completing a Podiatry referral form or by phoning 01942 483483 with a list of your medication and the referral can be completed by the admin team for you.
This can be completed on behalf of the patient by other health care professionals.
Assessment appointments will only be sent to those people who have met the access criteria. Treating minor foot problems and nail care in the healthy individual is no longer the role of the NHS Podiatrist.
