There isn’t really a difference. The term Chiropodist is being phased out in favour of Podiatrist which is a more internationally recognised term and also to show that the profession now requires a degree level education. Many Podiatrists practice without the degree but they will have demonstrate to the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) that they are suitably qualified to practice.
FHP’s are not Podiatrists as they do not have the same level of qualifications. They are generally regulated by the Professional Standards Association for Health and Social Care (PSA) and should not be confused with a Podiatrist.
This varies depending upon the treatment required. Our treatments vary in length and equipment required which all needs to be factored into cost. We are a private clinic and do not offer NHS services.

You should bring anything that you feel is relevant. For example, if you are struggling with footwear issues, bring them along.
We do ask that you bring a list of any medication and health issues you have. The more information we have about you the better as we can build a better picture of you as an individual and tailor our treatments to your specific needs. It is generally a good idea if you can to arrive around 10 minutes before your appointment to fill out patient information sheets.
