Podiatry Service (East and North Hertfordshire)

About the Service

Podiatry provision in Hertfordshire is divided by location. Patients registered with a GP in West Hertfordshire who have diabetes care come under the Herts Valley Integrated Diabetes Service.

Patients that are registered with a West Hertfordshire GP that do not have diabetes have their care provided by Central London Community Heathcare NHS Trust.

The podiatry service aims to promote positive foot health and provide a range of services for people with foot health problems. The service is targeted to those with the greatest podiatry needs, those who have a medical condition or are taking medication that puts their feet at greater risk of damage or infection.

The service is provided by a dedicated group of podiatrists who are trained to deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb. All staff involved in your care keep you informed throughout your treatment and give aftercare advice to help reduce foot problems. All of the podiatrists (chiropodists) are registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Criteria for accessing the service varies according to where you live in Hertfordshire. Please see the "Who is eligible for this Service" section below for more details.
