Frequently Asked Questions

What is telepodiatry?

This is the use of digital communication systems to carry out online foot health  consultations using video and audio link delivered straight to you no matter where you are.

Why use telepodiatry?

Unfortunately, foot problems are still going to arise despite lockdown! Telepodiatry support will help to reduce pain, discomfort, loss of mobility and anxiety whilst face-to-face consultations within the podiatry clinic are not possible.

Who is telepodiatry suitable for?

Anyone, anywhere who is experiencing skin and nail problems, discomfort,  inflammation, swelling, infection, foot pain and footwear issues or if you are in need of advice, reassurance and preventative measures to avoid more severe issues from developing.

How can a non- hands-on approach help me?

We can carry out an assessment via video link, and in most cases make a diagnosis. Based on this we can use our expertise, knowledge and experience to craft a home management plan to help alleviate your pain and prevent it from getting worse. This process will be like consulting face to face.

We can email you any advice sheets needed whether it is for wound care or a home rehabilitation programme for heel or foot pain, so we can support you throughout.

If we feel that you need treatment in the clinic during the telepodiatry consultation, we may offer you an appointment for urgent care at our Basildon and Billericay practices or a home visits. 

What if I need footcare products?

If you need foot care products to help treat your condition, we can organise getting these to you as long as we can comply with the distancing rules.
