Podiatry at the Leaf provides high quality, specialist footcare at competitive prices, so that our service is available to everyone.  We provide podiatry services to private patients along with those referred through their GP.

Podiatry at the Leaf provides a comprehensive range of assessments and treatments for conditions and injuries involving the foot, ankle and lower limb. 

Our biomechanics / musculoskeletal (nerves, muscles, tendons, joints and bones) and sports injury services include

*We can also offer corticosteroid injection therapy (direct referral only) and musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging to aid diagnosis, treatment monitoring and specialist therapy included guided injections if required as part of your musculoskeletal assessment.

At your first appointment a detailed assessment of your problem will be taken followed by a comprehensive physical examination. The findings will be explained to you and you will be given plenty of time to ask questions in order to understand your condition. A treatment plan will be agreed with you and a personalised management plan will be created to help you manage your condition effectively.

 You will be kept informed at all times about the management and progress of your condition. Should you need an onward referral for investigations we can facilitate this on your behalf.

Whatever your age, choice of lifestyle, work or sporting activity, it's good to know that there is a clinic on your doorstep with highly qualified podiatrists who have the advanced skills, knowledge and experience to help you whenever the need arises.

Children's Podiatry 

At the Leaf, we also offer children's podiatry services.  The children's podiatry service is lead by Dr Stewart Morrison who has over 15 years of experience in managing foot problems in children. The service  accepts referrals of children and young people from birth to 18.  This service covers the full range of problems that children encounter and can include children with:
 - Neurodisabilities (e.g autism; developmental coordination disorder);
-  Intellectual disabilities (e.g. Down's syndrome, Prader-willi syndrome)
-  Neurological conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy)
- Musculoskeletal problems (e.g. joint hypermobility; foot pain)
- Rheumatological conditions (e.g. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis; collagen disorders)
- Orthopaedic issues (e.g. tarsal coalition; osteochondroses)

We also accept referrals for children with isolated concerns that may not typically warrant access to NHS services.
