Foot Care

Our clinic aims to provide a fully comprehensive foot health service for conditions affecting the foot.
In recent years, the Foot Care Clinic has seen a surge of applications and selection criteria for treatment have been revised.

First priorities, individuals with:
  • Diabetes (specifically those at high risk of foot complications)
  • Raynaud's disease
  • Paralysis (paraplegia or hemiplegia)
  • Morbid obesity (BMI>40)
Of these, all individuals whose feets have been affected will be prioritized, following evaluation bythe professional.

Second priority:
Should there be any additional availability, individuals 70 years and older can also be seen.

Follow-ups for this group of individuals will be made according to the integrity of their feet and the availability of the professional.  Persons with little risk and having any pathology affecting the level of integrity of their feet can expect follow-ups every 6 months.

If the diagnosis requires additional medical care, referrals to the appropriate service or professional will be made by their family doctor.

 
Do clients require a referral from their doctor in order to have access to the services?

No, but certain criteria applies
