Welcome to Forbes Feet.
We knew you would find us eventually as foot care is becoming something for everyone. We are a small team and treat a wide range of patients from children to the elderly, diabetics and arthritic patients, to the everyday walker to the very athletic who trains regularly.
A Podiatrist / Chiropodist is a specialist of the foot, ankle and lower limb. Patients are often referred by their Surgeon or physician, GP, physiotherapist/osteopath or other healthcare professional but can self-refer if they feel they would benefit from one of the services offered by the clinic.
What is Chiropody/Podiatry?
What is the difference between a chiropodist and a podiatrist? There really is no difference. The term chiropody has been traditionally used in the UK for many years, whereas podiatry is recognised internationally.
The titles Chiropodist and Podiatrist are protected under the Health Professions Order 2001 and it is a criminal offence to use either title unless you are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
