Foot Health Month 2018

June 2018 is Foot Health Month


Our feet are incredible. Made up of 100 moveable parts including 26 bones and 20 muscles, they are a masterpiece of natural engineering. 

That’s why the College of Podiatry is urging everyone to discover how simple it is to keep them in peak condition. 

Our awareness campaign - Foot Health Month - is running throughout June to highlight the importance of foot health and of checking and taking care of our feet, and of course visiting an HCPC registered podiatrist with any pain or problems. 

Look out for us in the media and social media throughout June - follow #FootHealthMonth2018

Free foot health leaflets 

We have developed a brand new foot health leaflet, which will be given out free by podiatrists in their clinics and practices. Look out for a Foot Health Month 2018 poster in the window of your local podiatry practice and pop in to get yours!

Julia Bradbury supports Foot Health Month

Walking advocate, charity campaigner and TV presenter Julia Bradbury is known for her passion for the outdoors and has hosted some of our favourite TV programmes including Countryfile and Watchdog.  Her own walking series over the years include the stunning Wainwright Walks and Coast to Coast in the Lake District, and Railway Walks (BBC). Earlier this year she also hosted ITV’s primetime two-hour channel take-over Britain’s Favourite Walks: Top 100, following the success of her previous ITV series Britain’s Best Walks. Julia is the Keynote speaker at the College of Podiatry Conference in November in Bournemouth, and a supporter of our work to promote foot health this June in Foot Health Month.

She says: 

“Walking means so much to me and I believe it’s vital both for health and for emotional wellbeing. As a walker I rely on and respect my feet and know how important it is to take care of them. A visit to my podiatrist is a part of my health and fitness routine and helps me keep my feet in prime condition.

“I’m delighted to support the College of Podiatry’s Foot Health Month.”
