The Podiatry Service provides education, support and treatment for patients with problems affecting the foot and lower limb. This is a service based on clinical need and risk, with priority given to those patients with the highest foot health needs and risks. Access for an assessment of your needs is by referral via a health care professional such as your doctor or nurse.
Please note that there is a waiting list for this service for patients whose referrals are not triaged as putting them at immediate medical risk and that the service is provided by NHS Plymouth on a part-time basis and is independent of Yealm Medical Centre.
You may or may not be offered on-going care depending on your individual needs and the exact nature of the problem you have and the risk of potentially serious complications.
