'I would classify myself as a general Podiatrist who treats a broad spectrum of foot problems. I have always enjoyed variation and I like how every patient's complaint is personal to them. This makes the job interesting as you never know what you're going to see on a day to day basis!'
Lisa qualified from the University of Plymouth in 2014 with a BSc in Podiatry, where she spent time working as a student Podiatrist in a number of different NHS trusts. It was there that she was able to shadow Podiatric and Orthopaedic surgeons, and this has provided her with an understanding of what surgical options may be possible for patients when conservative treatment is not suitable.
Post graduation Lisa joined the NHS. It was here that she gained experience in treating patients with Diabetes and liaising with other healthcare workers; both of which she still does today.
After about a year Lisa moved into the private sector and worked in two multidisciplinary clinics. Working alongside other healthcare professionals allowed her to offer a holistic approach to each patient and also share professional opinions regarding treatment plans. Lisa believes it is important where possible to involve other clinicians as many complaints are multifaceted.
Lisa started the business in 2016 in order to work independently and took experience from each workplace to provide a service that puts the patient's needs first. Her aim is to offer a healthcare service that treats an array of foot related problems with the most innovative methods, and she regularly undergoes training to achieve this.
Lisa loves running (for the most part) and the gym, both of which compliments her interest in treating sports injuries and alleviating foot pain.
Emily gained a first honours degree in podiatry from Northampton University in 2018 and has since worked in both the NHS and private sectors. Having worked in the musculoskeletal Podiatry clinics in the Cambridge and Peterborough Foundation NHS trust, she has an extensive knowledge of sports injuries and foot pain. In addition to this, Emily is a keen runner and has run five marathons as well as running for her local running club.
Emily keeps up to date with the newest evidence based practice and undergoes regular CPD that is provided both in-house and with regulatory bodies such as the Royal College of Podiatry. She has an interest in bio-mechanics and these appointment types are her favourite to carry out.
Fun fact: Emily has a beagle called Benji whom she absolutely adores!
