Do you go to one?
What do they charge and how is the service?

I go about four times a year. Current charge is £42.50 and lasts half an hour.
I come out walking on air, I could never achieve the same result doing it myself, and I don’t have all the necessary electronic equipment.
I recall someone saying Look after your eyes, teeth and feet they are keys to your survival.
I don’t hear of many people going but I suppose they must as it’s never easy to get an appointment.

Proves just how long ago i went to the chiropodist - £10!

I think £42.50 is well worth it though.

Not seen one since.

Eligibility for NHS podiatric treatment
Podiatric treatment is available in most parts of the country at present, and whether the service is available or not depends on the PCT (Primary Care Trust). The PCT is the authority responsible for managing a Trust’s funds and services, putting them firmly in charge of whether podiatry is available at all in the area.

Cases are usually assessed based on an individual’s needs, and where medically necessary podiatric care is available on the NHS. In most cases the criteria for whether or not free treatment available revolves around the question of mobility. If a person’s condition impacts their movement and quality of life, then treatment is provided through the NHS.

In most areas of the NHS diabetics are given priority podiatric treatment because of the complications presented by diabetic foot, a condition caused by diabetes that stems from poor circulation and sensitivity in the lower limb. Individual PCTs usually maintain their own referral policies however, and if you are diabetic it is worth familiarising yourself with your local PCT’s approach to referrals.

Referral is the main means by which podiatric services are provided through the NHS. If your doctor feels your individual circumstances warrant some specific podiatric care.
