Dietician and Podiatry

All patients will be referred to the Dietetic department based at Lever Chambers (for patients with diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol problems and obesity, etc.).

The podiatry service is a screening service for Diabetic patients only. Diabetic patients now have screening for their feet at the same time as their retinal screening appointment (eye screen). The podiatrist will then consider the risk involved to your feet and you will either be seen again at the next retinal screening appointment or will be asked to attend an alternate clinic for treatment with the chiropodist. It is important that all diabetic patients attend for an annual check of their feet to look for neuropathy (nerve damage).
