CHIROPODY & PODIATRY
Paola qualified as a registered Podiatrist (encompassing Chiropody) in 2001 from Southampton University. In brief, following gaining her degree in Podiatry she went on to work full time in Gloucestershire for the NHS. It was during this period that Paola gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in specialities including Diabetes, Rheumatology, wound care, nail Surgery and Chiropody, working both in hospitals and community settings.
Paola then moved to Somerset where she continued to work for the NHS, running Assessment Clinics, triaging, training students, working within Musgrove Park Hospital and carrying out domiciliary wound care and general Chiropody. It was during her years working for the NHS that Paola gained experience that could enable her to successfully move on and work within private practice.
Since 2006 Paola has worked at The Wellington Road Foot Clinic. All areas of Podiatry interest Paola due to her varied experience, including nail care, general Foot health and all the associated problems encompassing all ages from 3 to 103.
She regularly receives referrals from GP's and health professionals for her services.
Paola is happy to see patients with all sorts of problems including corns, calluses/hard skin, nail problems. You are welcome to phone the Wellington Road Foot clinic if you have any queries.
Paola is registered with HCPC and is a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and regularly attends courses to keep up with professional development.
