A podiatrist (also known as a chiropodist) is a health professional who deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs.

The Wandsworth St George’s Podiatry Department aims to provide the best possible podiatric care, being delivered by fully qualified, enthusiastic and motivated staff.

All our staff registered and regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council.
We offer a range of Standard & Specialist services that cater for a range of foot pathologies:


Eligibility for Podiatric treatment is based on Podiatric need, i.e. a problem that cannot be treated by the individual concerned. This need will be assessed on an individual basis, it is not based on age or specific to certain medical conditions, such as diabetes.

Nail care will only be provided to patients who have vascular or neurological complications, are receiving anti-coagulant therapy or have a disability that prevents them caring for their own feet. If you are not eligible for the service we will suggest the most appropriate action to help with your problem, including nail care advice.
