Check out the 'Appointment News' and Appointment Screening' sections for details.
A Medical History form will be completed prior to your visit. At your appointment you will be asked what your concerns are regarding your feet and your medical history will be discussed and an overall assessment of the feet will be taken. If you require subsequent visits I will check that your medical history is up to date and continue to monitor your foot health.
Once we have discussed what is required and agreed the necessary action I will carry out the appropriate treatment. An appropriate foot cream or heel balm will be applied at the end of your treatment. I can also make devices to offload pressure, e.g. silicon moulds to help separate toes.
I will advise what you may need to do or use at home to continue to care for your feet. We will make a plan for further visits where necessary and If I believe you need further help I will advise you accordingly.

Tisbury foot clinic (Tisbury Foot Care on map) is situated on the High Street in a red brick building on the opposite side to the garage (Tisbury Motor Company on map) and next to the Victoria Hall which is on the corner of the High Street and Park Road. Parking is available on the street outside, round the corner on Park Road or there is a Free car park on The Avenue near the Fire Station next to the public toilets.
There are three steps with a handrail up to the door and you will see a sign for the Osteopathy clinic. Alternatively you can avoid the steps by going round the back off of Park Road up a driveway between Elizabeth Hall and the entrance for Tisbury Doctors Surgery. You will see a double garage with a pathway to the left where you will then go through a wooden gate round the side of the building to the front entrance avoiding any steps. If you let me know that you will be using this entrance I will leave the gate open for you.

HEALTHY FEET screening questions
*Track and Trace/NHS Covid 19 app
In the eventuality that I (the practitioner) get symptoms of Covid-19 within 48hrs of having close contact with you during an appointment and then later test positive, I am obliged under law to provide your name, telephone number or email and the date and time of your visit to the test and trace service. Please note that by attending the appointment you give consent for this.
I will telephone you on the day of your appointment to check that you are fit and well and that everything is alright from a Covid perspective for your appointment to go ahead. (including no high temperature, cough or loss or change in taste or smell). I am continuing to rearrange appointments for when you are better even if you just have cold-like symptoms. This is because the main symptoms in vaccinated adults often include headache, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat and fatigue.
These pre-screening questions and procedures are to keep both you and myself safe.
Just as we regularly visit the dentist, hygienist and opticians, we also need to consider our feet, particularly those who are getting older, are less mobile or are experiencing
problems or concerns about their feet.
Healthy feet help us to get the most out of life!
