FAQs

Will my referral be accepted?

              Your referral may be rejected and the application returned to you if:

1) The patient is under the age of 5 years old

2) If the referral form has not been completed properly. In order to process your referral we need your name, address, date of birth, telephone number and the reason why you want to see a podiatrist.

What should I expect from my apointment?

                Every patient receives an initial assessment from a fully qualified Podiatrist. The outcome of this assessment will decide the type of treatment that you may receive in the future. Please be aware that regular access to podiatry care on the NHS is determined by how severe a patient's underlying medical conditions are and whether they are likely to develop a complication that could be severely life changing or require hospital care, unless they receive regular podiatry treatment.
