Podiatry

Our experienced podiatrists can visit you in your home to offer advice on how to look after your feet and find appropriate footwear.

We have podiatrists who work as part of our ‘allied health’ team. This also includes occupational therapists, physiotherapists, therapy assistants, and care aides. They work together to make sure you get the best outcome from your care.

Our podiatrists will visit you in your home to:

  • complete an assessment of your feet and footwear
  • treat and monitor all aspects of foot care, from basic nail care to foot infections, ulcers, corns and callouses
  • help you find correct footwear to increase your comfort and stability
  • offer advice on foot hygiene
  • provide support to increase your foot health.

We can provide this as a regular service at your home if you have difficulty getting to a podiatry appointment.

How much does it cost?
