Podiatrists have a key role to play in helping people maintain their health and social wellbeing and live independently within their own community. This is especially so for patients with complex medical conditions such as diabetes.

Footwear Service

The Footwear Service provides stock, modular and bespoke footwear to patients who are considered at risk or are deemed to have a clinical need for specialist footwear.
