Podiatry is the branch of healthcare that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of foot health problems. It has largely replaced the more commonly known term chiropody.
The podiatrist is responsible for assessing and treating a wide range of conditions and is concerned with ensuring that the most effective course of treatment is offered. An important aspect of this work is the provision of advice on ways that members of the public can look after their own feet, including making appropriate footwear choices.
The department is staffed by registered practitioners whose main role is to provide NHS podiatry services across Oxfordshire.
Referrals for this service are accepted from any healthcare professional.
The service is available Monday to Thursday 8.30am to 4.30pm and Friday 8.30am to 4pm.
