Regulatory Bodies...

All our Podiatrists have undertaken a 3 year full time course at a school of podiatry recognised by The College of Podiatry. Originally, this was the only qualification in chiropody  recognised for employment by the National Health Service. This training led to the title of State Registered Chiropodist.

In 2018 the name of the school of podiatry was changed from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists to The College of Podiatry.

In 2002 the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) was established. This governing body was to regulate our profession and protect the titles of chiropodist & podiatrist. By law, anyone practicing under these titles must be on the HPC register, but not all registrants on this list have had the full time 3 year training.
