Before your appointment

Please check which hospital your appointment is at and bring with you any:

  • medication that you are currently taking
  • relevant medical history. 

Changing or cancelling your appointment

Please telephone us on 020 7188 2449 as soon as possible so we can offer your appointment to another patient. 

At your appointment

Patient having a leg castedYou can expect your first appointment to last from 45 minutes to an hour. Follow-up appointments last 15 - 30 minutes.

You will be assessed and diagnosed by one of the podiatrists, and given a treatment plan if needed.

As this is a teaching hospital, students supervised by qualified staff might be involved in your care. It is valuable training for students and does not affect the quality of your treatment in any way, but please tell us if you do not want them to be present or involved. We will always respect your wishes.

After your appointment

Any aftercare information will be given to you at the end of your appointment and we will let the person who referred you know your diagnosis and treatment plan.

If you have any concerns or problems, please contact the clinic directly and one of the staff members will help you.

I highly recommend the foot health clinic… very organised, always on time and I received great care
