We can offer this service to people based anywhere in the UK.
If you are geographically too far away for subsequent in-person treatment, we’ll be glad to signpost you to finding the treatment you need.

  • What does the Online Video Consultation entail?
  • One-on-one Podiatry consultation, lasting up to 20 minutes, using video conferencing software.
  • During your consultation the Podiatrist will make an assessment, taking a detailed history and asking you to perform certain movements and tests if required.
  • You will be able to ask the Podiatrist questions to address your injury or problem concerns.
  • Treatment may include: medications, stretching/strengthening regimes, posting of medical devices, or self care advice. You may also be emailed information leaflets regarding specific treatments should a physical appointment be required to resolve your symptoms.
  • For patients under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will need to be present during the appointment.
  • How does it work?

1. If you click ‘Book’ at the top of our website you can schedule an appointment for a time that is convenient for you.

2. Following your booking, you will receive email instructions, including; 
 
  • A link to your medical history form which must be completed prior to the appointment. In this form you can describe the purpose for consultation. You will also be able to upload photos for the Podiatrist prior to the appointment.
  • Steps to access your video consultation. You will require a device with video and audio capability.

3. Five minutes prior to your allotted time find a private and quiet place, ensuring a strong internet connection and sufficient battery power. We recommend that you have an empty floor space to be able to perform any assessment that may be required during your consultation. 

4. At your allotted time you will have a one-to-one consultation with a Podiatrist, in which they will ask questions, offering diagnosis and treatment. 

5. Follow up appointments, if required, can be arranged. 

  • How private is the Online Video Consultation?
  • We use secure software to connect with you for the consultation and have secure network access for our computers. You are responsible for ensuring your device is secure.
  • The same privacy and confidentiality requirements that apply to face-to-face consultations apply to video consultations.
  • Your podiatrist will take written notes throughout your appointment but we will not video or audio record your session.
  • If your Podiatrist believes that taking a photo or video recording will benefit your treatment plan they will ask for your explicit written consent via email prior to taking any images.
  • Will I still need to attend in person?

A certain amount of examination can occur remotely and you will be advised accordingly. However, if you require further direct examination, then a clinical appointment may need to be scheduled.

Please see our FAQ or Contact us with any queries.

Give it a go, you’ll be surprised about what you may be able to get out of our appointment.

Whether you are a new patient or a regular, you will be advised of our prices and no treatment will be undertaken without your prior consent.
