Podiatry and primary care

Podiatry and primary care


Whether you are a GP, general practice nurse, practice manager, allied health professional or a member of the public, welcome to our website and thank you for visiting. 

We have put together some quick links to resources designed to help you better understand about foot health and what role podiatrists play in keeping the UK mobile and supporting public health. 

In the first instance, please watch our video 'what is podiatry', which tells you all about the vital work a podiatrist does.

Annual foot health campaign

We also run an awareness campaign each year - Foot Health month - for the public and other health professionals highlighting the importance of foot health and podiatry. 

As part of this year's campaign, which runs in April, we are also reaching into GP surgeries with foot health leaflets and posters. These will be displayed in 5000 GP surgeries around the UK, during March to May, and we have written to all GPs, practice nurses and practice managers in those surgeries about this campaign. 

Primary healthcare professionals - your surgery may be one of those so please look out for our materials and please feed back to us on our campaign.

This campaign is kindly sponsored by Scholl.
