Dip. Pod. M – M.Ch.S – HCPC Registered
“I qualified from Durham School of Podiatric Medicine in 1979 and after 30 years of practice I still find the lower limb and general foot problems interesting and challenging.
Following qualification I worked for 4 years full time in the N.H.S followed by the part time posts as a senior within the hospital, practical skills teacher and Marks & Spencer’s podiatrist in Newcastle whilst establishing the practise from 1982 with Mrs V Smart.
I am fascinated by all aspects of my job but have a special interest in the treatment of verruca by cyotherapy (using liquid nitrogen), nail surgery (to resolve persistent nail problems) and basic bio mechanics to conservatively address posture and gait.
My working week is Monday pm, Wednesday and Friday home visits. I am in the practise on a Tuesday, last appointment 4.30pm and Thursday, late night, last appointment 6.30pm and alternate Saturday mornings (2nd and 4th) 9.30am-12.30pm. “
