Podiatry professionals treat foot and mobility problems, and address their causes. This can involve the removal of a painful corn and perhaps the prescription of an orthotic or support to help avoid its recurrence. Advice will be given on all aspects of your foot health and footwear, and a follow-up appointment may be necessary. We are committed to providing the best treatments available, and keep up to date with recent research and innovations within the profession. We will liaise with other professions, if necessary, (such as physiotherapists) in order to ensure you get all-round care.
Established in 1985, The Foot Clinic was originally started as a one-person private practice with the clinic's founder, Sue Summers. By 1994 we had grown into an independent business, running from Ipswich Road, where we have been ever since. Over the years, we have continued to expand to such a degree that we now offer services from our base on Ipswich Road and outreach clinics in Manningtree, Wivenhoe, Dedham and Hatfield Peverel. We currently have 7 qualified podiatrists working here who are all HCPC registered. The clinic is open 5 and a half days per week, with an evening surgery on Thursday's, often running three surgeries concurrently.
We now have a patient base of over 15,000 clients, many of whom have been with us since the early days. We also hold The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists certificate of Practice Accreditation, which requires rigorous standards and codes of practice. Colchester Foot Clinic is one of a few private practices to fulfill the strict accreditation criteria.
