Foot health practioners (FHPs) are trained to keep people’s feet in a healthy condition and advise on day to day care. There are many conditions that they can either treat or refer to other professionals, for example GPs and podiatrists.The conditions that a foot health professional treats include corns, calluses, warts, ingrown toenails and fungal infection. They trim nails carefully to prevent nail problems developing. They are trained to offer guidance on footcare to ensure health and comfort.

I trained at The SMAE Institute in Maidenhead (Paul-please insert link to The SMAE Institute here). I have a Diploma in Foot Health (with merit). I am fully insured to practice. I hold a current first aid certificate and I am a member of the Association of Foot Health Practitioners. I have to update my learning regularly as part of my professional expectations.
