Description of Service

Podiatry is a health profession which specialises in the prevention, diagnoses, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders of the foot and lower limb.

Our principle target population are inpatients and outpatients who have foot problems of an extremely serious nature such as foot ulceration, infection or acute Charcot's foot (neuroarthropathy).

These patients are most at risk of admission for a lower limb amputation which could have a significant impact on their morbidity and mortality.
