By authority of the elected Board of Executive of the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, Deans of our faculties of Podiatric Medicine, College of Podiatric Surgeons and College of Foot Health, and working together with Health Education England and the other major professional bodies in UK podiatry, the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists have agreed, with those other organisations, to jointly issue the following worded statement:
Foot Health Consortium
Health Education England (HEE) has invited key stakeholders to join the newly established Foot Health Consortium. We are delighted to be a member of this Consortium. The Consortium has been established to advise HEE on the current education, training and scope of practice of the different groups of practitioners working in foot health. The priority of the Consortium is to design and develop an agreed framework with appropriate educational resources. The aim is that the model will be applicable to all sectors of this workforce and will be recognised, understood and accepted by service users and practitioners.
Podiatrists are trained to assess, diagnose, treat, prevent and rehabilitate complications of the feet, ankles and associated structures….. see more here
