1. How long do podiatry treatments last?

I like to spend quality time with each of my patients so each treatment lasts up to 30 minutes.  For your first appointment you will need to be here 5 minutes earlier so that you can fill out a medical questionnaire to help me with your treatment plan.

2. How much does it cost?

I hope that you find the service that you receive at Oaklands Clinic great value.  The treatment will involve taking a full history and listening to your concerns and discussing the treatment options available as well as undertaking the agreed treatment.  This currently costs £33

3. Can I claim on my medical insurance?

Yes you can. You can claim on many different medical insurance policies for your podiatry treatment such as Simply Health, HSA, and Saturday Hospital Fund etc.

4. Do I need a G.P. referral?

No you don’t need a referral from your G.P. or from anybody else. I am happy to see you if you are just looking for peace of mind or if you have a clear problem that needs treating.

What training do podiatrists have to do to maintain their registration?

All podiatrists must undertake a minimum of 30 hours of additional training a year.  This can be a mixture of courses, workshops and general reading.
