Under the supervision of fully trained academic staff our students use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to provide a wide range of treatments. Our podiatry clinic can help with foot problems in children, nail surgery for an ingrowing toe nail, biomechanical issues, foot-related sports injuries and can even modify or create bespoke orthoses.

Our academics are all experts within the field of podiatry, two of which have recently been awarded the prestigious Fellowship Award from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Faculty of Podiatric Medicine.
