Foot Care/Foot Health Practitioner

 

Foot Health Practitioners deliver routine foot care wherever it is needed.  They are trained to recognise and assess foot conditions, treat appropriately and refer when necessary.  Many people need simple foot care to maintain mobility and quality of life. Being overweight or diabetic increases the need, both of these conditions are rapidly increasing in prevalence in the population.

Working as independent practitioners in the private sector, Foot Health Practitioners deliver their skills in a wide range of settings. They work with other health care professionals wherever necessary for the well-being of their clients.

They may visit individual clients in their own homes, attend clients in Rest Homes and Nursing Homes, or visit industrial and commercial sites for the benefit of employees.  Many Foot Health Practitioners establish their own surgery-based premises in order to provide a service to a local population.
