How To Use The Service

Before your visit

Think what about health issues you have been experiencing and what questions to ask. Please bring any medication you are on with you. You will be sent a letter with details of your appointment.

During your visit

You will be asked to report to your local community health clinic reception. A member of staff will call you from the waiting room. You can expect to have an examination and you may be expected to complete some forms. Your medical records will be updated. You will be advised of the next steps in your treatment.

After your visit

A care plan will be put into place during your visit and you will either receive a short term package of care to treat an acute problem for which you will be given pre-booked appointments, you may be given a long term care plan for which you will be advised to rebook a new podiatry appointment as required, or you may be discharged from the service with the appropriate advice as no further treatment is required.
