Practitioner information

We explain about our practitioners here

What is a practitioner?

At FOOT CARE we use the term 'practitoner' as a term to describe members of our team who provide  services across our clinics. Our practitioner team consist of 'Foot health Practitioners' or[FHP's], Chiropodists and Podiatrists and student Podiatrists. Usually throughout the summer months we utilise experienced pedicurists and manicurists too. We have an experienced clinical Podiatry manager that oversees all areas of our clinical team and regularly provides 1-2-1 meetings and training events with our Practitioner team to keep them current and up-to-date. We also utilise a growing network of 'Locum' Podiatrists; in the unfortunate event your 'usual' practitioner is absent or under the weather. All of our Locums are expected to provide the same level of service as our usual practitioner team members. If you wish to apply to become one of our locums, please contact us here.

Why do we have different types of practitioner?

At FOOT CARE, we like to try to keep our pricing structure as affordable as possible, we regularly check similar businesses to see their rates to see how we can improve on ours.


We also offer a price match guarantee. If you find a like for like service with the same practitioner type providing the same service, we will better it and provide an additional 10% discount. Additionally, having a number of different practitioner types means we can provide more services, gauge further, and second opinions to better the service we provide to you.

Research has previously shown us that often what can be classed as 'routine or maintaining' foot care can be much more expensive 'than we feel' on the face of it, ought to be. By utilising a number of different practitioners, across a network of types we can provide a fair and affordable rate, whilst still providing quality foot health to our existing and new patients. Price match terms here.

Do I need a consultation?

Ideally, a consultation is the best way to proceed forward.

Although, you can choose from a range of our treatment options available on the bookings page.


Choosing to have a consultation ahead of treatment is the best course of action to take if you have a number of different foot problems. 

Allowing time to discuss any worries or concerns you may have with your foot health, ensuring that the best course of action can be taken for your care plan, spending time directly as a 1-2-1 also ascertains that you are utilising the best type of practitioner for your needs. 

Consultations, sometimes also find other foot ailments that you may otherwise have not noticed, such as an infection or an ulcer.

As standard with our consultations:

  • Privacy and comfort

  • In-depth assessment of your foot health

  • Thorough foot examination

  • 1-2-1 with the practitioner

  • Pulses and circulatory check

The practitioner will complete assessment paperwork with you and medical history during your appointment. A review for onward referral where applicable. Results of examination, pulses and circulatory check can be onward sent to your gp. Your practitioner will advise the best course of action to take in regard to any foot ailments found, the practitioner will then rebook you as appropriate and advise of time-scales for treatment.
