Foot Health Month - April 2019

Together we can raise awareness of podiatry

Our Foot Health Month campaign for 2019 will build on last year’s campaign, focusing on good food health, and raising the public’s awareness and understanding of podiatry – with a clear message that they should visit an HCPC registered podiatrist as the health specialists for foot and lower limb pain and problems.

New foot health leaflet and materials for you 

We have a redesigned, updated, foot health leaflet and poster for you to put in your clinics and practices, or to give out at health events or gyms, giving basic foot health advice and recommending when to see a podiatrist.

We will be promoting Foot Health Month extensively on social media and will provide campaign materials for you to share via our website, as well as tools and tips to help you support the campaign and make the most of the opportunities to raise awareness of podiatry.

Raising awareness of foot health in the media 

As part of our wider media campaign to promote Foot Health Month, we will be approaching journalists from national, consumer and local media, online media and consumer sites with a news story about the nation’s foot health based on a survey of the general public that we are commissioning.

College of Podiatry media spokesperson and Council member Emma McConnachie, said:

"We all want to raise awareness of podiatry and that starts with promoting a basic knowledge of good foot health – and that’s what we’re going to be promoting across the UK during Foot Health Month this April. I’ll be taking part in our podiatry practice in Stirling – make sure you take part too."
