I completed my 3 year full time Diploma in Podiatric Medicine in 1987 at The Sussex School of Podiatry. I am a member of The College of Podiatry (CoP) and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I have over 30 years’ experience in the field of Podiatry/chiropody. I have worked in the public sector, where I specialised in the management of the diabetic foot at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and now work in the private sector only. Over the years, I have gained experience in most areas of podiatry and chiropody, however, I, now, have keen interest in nail reconstruction using LCN Wilde-Pedique and enjoy the rewards and satisfaction that thorough, routine chiropody treatments bring both me and my clients.
I am committed to updating my clinical knowledge and am keen to network with other healthcare professionals. I hold the office Chairman of the Berkshire Branch of The College of Podiatry and help organise study days and meetings for my colleagues within the profession.
Since being in my teens I always knew I wanted to work within healthcare. I, especially, enjoyed dissection as part of my A level syllabus and when looking at professions within healthcare I realised I wanted to be a specialist in one particular area of the body. Podiatry, therefore, suits my skills and interests. The bonus is the relief I can give to patients and the satisfaction that brings.
In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. You will either find me walking the dog or up at the stables in my spare time. I am also involved in supporting the Village of Hope, Leprosy Colony, East Delhi, so some of my spare time is used to fund raise for them and I enjoy giving talks and presentations about my time spent out there.
