Our service is periodically closed for in-service training. This half day usually occurs 4 times a year.
Individual staff members also undertake their own personal training to make sure they are always up to date with clinical developments and can review their knowledge regularly. All members of staff must also attend annual mandatory training such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), Manual Handling and Fire Safety.
We appreciate the importance of continued professional education.
Undergraduate and post graduate students undertake part of their clinical programme within the department. You may therefore be treated by a student podiatrist under the direction of a qualififed podiatrist. Should you not wish the student to treat you please speak to your podatrist who will carry out your treatment instead.
