What To Expect

During your first appointment a detailed medical history will be taken, including any medications that you take. A camera may be used (with your consent) to record the condition of your feet before, during and after treatment.

A foot health assessment will be carried out to include the condition of your nails, skin and circulation before making a diagnosis and discussing a treatment plan.

At Rossendale Footcare we aim to provide the best possible standards of care at all times. Our podiatrists are trained to degree level and are fully insured. They regularly attend courses to improve their knowledge and the services offered within the practice and maintain a program of continued professional development to ensure their skills are up to date.
