Podiatry

The Podiatry Service assesses, diagnoses and treats a wide range of health problems affecting people’s feet and lower legs. These may include in-growing toenails, sports injuries, foot ulcers, severe sepsis, severe foot deformities or functional problems.

Access to the service is determined by a patient’s level of need and the extent to which any medical conditions (eg diabetes) put the foot at risk of serious complications, such as losing the limb. Referrals accepted into the service are likely to include people who have diabetes, weakened immunity, peripheral vascular disease, peripheral neuropathy or severe foot deformity.

Please note:

From Friday 8th May 2015, the Emergency Podiatry Clinic at Leatherhead Clinic will now be held in the mornings, from 8.45am-11am (so no longer 1.30-4pm).

"I would like to convey my sincere praise for all the care and attention I have received from all the podiatrists...I found them to be so kind and caring."

All patients referred to the service for general podiatry (‘non urgent’) will be invited to a foot health education talk. The session includes an individual foot screening with a podiatrist to determine the most appropriate treatment. ‘Urgent’ referrals are normally seen within one week.

Toenail cutting and treatment of minor corns and callus are not provided for patients who have no specific medical conditions.​

Podiatry Clinics are based in community health centres, clinics and hospitals across the CSH Surrey area. Home visits are only available for those who are housebound.
