    The FEET @ MACCLEFIELD Team

    WHAT IS

    PODIATRY / CHIROPODY?

    The practice has highly trained health professionals with many years of NHS experience who can assess the feet diagnosing, treating and preventing abnormal conditions in the lower limbs by therapeutic, palliative or orthotics means.

    These are just a few of the common conditions we treat:

    NAIL CUTTING

    REDUCING OF CORNS & CALLUSES

    TREATMENT OF VERRUCAS

    TREATMENT OF ATHLETE'S FOOT

    SURGERY ON INGROWN TOENAILS

    DIABETES FOOTCARE ASSESSMENTS & EDUCATION

    BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENTS

    PROVISION OF ORTHOTICS & INSOLES

    All Podiatrist/Chiropodists members of the College of Podiatrists must all be registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC). This means that we must undertake continued professional development which allows us to continue calling ourselves Podiatrists / Chiropodists. The practitioner must also attain a minimum standard of qualifications to be able practice. Anyone without those qualifications is not allowed to call themselves a Podiatrist or Chiropodist.

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    ON YOUR FIRST VISIT

    Chiropody / Podiatry

    An initial Consultation with one of our Podiatrists will include taking a full medical history. This also includes a list of your current medication. This information can influence the treatment we offer you.

    We will ask you about your reason for visiting the practice. The podiatrist will then look at your problem and do an assessment of your feet and legs.

    From all the information gathered it will be explained to you what needs to be done and answer any questions you might have.

    With your agreement the Podiatrist will undertake the necessary treatment.

    SHEONA BATH

    SHEONA BATH

    MEMBER OF THE COLLEGE OF PODIATRY. REGISTERED WITH HCPC (No. CH10774)

     

    I qualified in 1990 from the Glasgow School of Chiropody with a Diploma in Chiropody. In 1994 I upgraded the Diploma to a BSc. Degree in Podiatric Medicine from Salford University.

    My first job was in the Orkney Islands, Scotland working for 2 years there. I worked mainly in a clinical setting but also had to travel, by sea or air, to various outlying islands treating patients who were unable to attend the mainland clinic. I then moved to a job in Manchester working for 17 years with the NHS and Specialising as a Diabetes Specialist Podiatrist. I undertook research in the high risk foot and worked with a multidisciplinary team at Manchester Foot Hospital and Manchester Diabetes Centre at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

    In 2005 I set up my private Podiatry practice and I decided that it was time to try new avenues of opportunity so 2 years later I resigned from my post in the NHS and concentrated more on my practice.

    In 2011 I jumped at the opportunity to open my own premises on Charlotte Street and here I am now running a business that I love and have a lot of enjoyment from.

    Before my Podiatry career I gained a Diploma in Radiography and also spent several years working in Elderly Care. The key theme running through all my work is that I enjoy working with people and helping them.
