  • palliative foot care for anyone at risk or with a podiatric need
  • vascular and neurological assessment, and wound management  
  • nail surgery using a local anaesthetic
  • biomechanical assessment which may lead to the prescription and manufacture of orthotics for children and adults
  • alternative therapies including marigold and acupuncture  
  • steroid injections
