Podiatrists are trained to diagnose, prevent and treat foot disorders.
The Podiatry service is for clients who have a condition that places their lower limb at risk of complications, or have a significant foot problem. A referral from a GP or other health professional is required for new clients who should hold pension card or health care card. Due to the demands on this service, EGHS is unable to accept self-referrals for our Podiatry services and general nail cutting on healthy feet is not offered.
The Podiatrists at EGHS can assess, treat and give expert advice on a wide range of problems affecting the feet, lower limbs, gait and mobility.
These problems may include:
