Podiatrists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of problems and diseases that affect the feet. The Podiatry team contributes to keeping patients mobile, this includes educating people on foot health and where appropriate giving advice about self-managing their foot care.
The podiatry service is based at Barnstaple health centre and also covers Bideford hospital, Torrington hospital, Holsworthy hospital, South Molton hospital, Chumleigh Surgery, Caen Medical centre, Ilfracombe.
This service offers individual appointments for people with routine and musculoskeletal foot pathologies. Patients can be referred to the service by an NHS practitioner or they can self-refer.
