For family reasons, I regret that my practice will remain closed until further notice
I started training as an RGN in 1986 but after injuring my back in a lifting accident I decided to switch to chiropody. I completed my training with Scholls in 1994 and then spent the next ten years running a variety of surgery based and domiciliary practices in the Salisbury area and in London. One of my most successful practices was at the Old Orchard Surgery in Wilton, then headed up by Dr Andy Hall. As well as providing general chiropody services, I ran a popular weekly diabetic foot clinic as well as a nail cutting service for the elderly and less able. I was registered with the then Health Professions Council (HPC) as a chiropodist and was a full member of the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOPC).
In 2004, I stopped working as a chiropodist to concentrate on looking after my five children and supporting my soldier husband. It was great fun as my husband was a Gurkha officer and we therefore spent most of our time with these lovely people. You can find out more about Gurkhas by following the link at the bottom of this page.
My husband left the Army a few years ago - he now runs a strategy and leadership consultancy and writes action adventure thrillers and books about Gurkhas - and my children are old enough to allow me to return to work. We have also returned to the Salisbury area which means that I have had the opportunity to re-establish myself in my old career as an HCPC registered podiatrist / chiropodist.
I am now looking forward to returning to work as the COVID-19 lockdown begins to ease. I aim to provide high quality care at an affordable price and I am very much looking forward to getting to know new patients, as well as catching up with my previous patients.
