Founded in 1919, we are the longest running independent provider of training in Foot Health in the UK, with a reputation for excellence in teaching and pastoral support. We also provide medical indemnity insurance & offer a variety of high quality CPD subjects to help enhance practitioners clinical expertise.
We are committed to developing and supporting our Students and Members. Most recently, our Diploma in Prescription Only Medicines was included on the HCPC's list of approved programmes, alongside our Local Anaesthesia Diploma.
Our extensive ten bay clinic also includes a surgery facility with a dedicated biomechanics area where students will learn to use a variety of equipment. Amongst this we also have a Biomechanicc system which uses a computerised pressure plate for stance and gait analysis. The main surgery area takes into account patient privacy with individual cubicles and includes a separate sterilisation room with a state of the art autoclave ultrasonic cleaner combination unit.
The surgeries, reception and student common rooms are fully air-conditioned with access for disabled and less mobile patients. In addition, the building is fully air conditioned, with the largest lecture theatre not only air-conditioned but incorporates an air exchange system. The first floor consists of a fully equipped lecture theatre seating 100 with a raised stage, 2.4 square metres screen, PC with Internet access and full PA system.
Our student common room has a number of PC's with internet access and has access onto the rear garden. Included in the common room is a bookstore run by Wellow Book Services. The bookstore is open whenever a CPD workshop or Medical Emergency Procedures day is running, including during the week when clinical training is taking place.
