Preparing for your appointment

 

How long are podiatry appointments?

Initial appointments are up to 45 minutes with subsequent routine appointments lasting up to 30 minutes. Some treatments and/or assessments take longer but will be discussed at your initial appointment if this is required.

Do I have to be referred by a doctor?

We do accept GP referrals but anyone can refer themselves for treatment. Please be aware that some insurance policies require your GP to authorise treatment so please check if a GP referral is needed if you have private medical insurance

 

What happens at the first appointment?

Your check in process - 

It is best to arrive about 10 minutes before your appointment.

What should you bring with you for your Holistic Experience

Foot and lower limb pain management could be cause by multiple causes - poor posture, back problems, poor circulation  -  there are over 300 conditions so you might be surprised at the things we ask!

However, the smallest detail is often relevant so we would appreciate full disclosure of all known medical history.

if you are unable to access our file for whatever reason please  call us on 075636 56666 and let us know.

 

 1. Your confidential medical history form

Without your confidential medical history your podiatrist cannot assess, diagnose (where appropriate) and treat according to your individual needs.

2. Initial Assessment Questionnaire

Please download and print our initial assessment questionnaire which will comprise your confidential medical history file..

At your first appointment at Soft Soles Holistic Podiatry, you will be asked to fill in your confidential medical history form, (you can download a blank form  at the bottom of this page, fill it in and bring it with you.

 

3 .Please also bring with you a list of any medication you may be taking, including any supplements and/or complementary medicaments to add to the form

 

(the receptionist can photocopy this from a repeat prescription if this is easier for you).

4. Please also bring four or five footwear items regularly worn..e.g shoes, trainers, heels, sandals, slippers socks and/or hosiery to further aid your diagnosis.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

During the first appointment, your podiatrist will make an initial review of your form, then we will discuss your problem with you and then sometimes further initial assessments will be conducted.

 

Once this has been carried out, your podiatrist will discuss a provisional management plan with you.

Once you are happy and if/where time allows, treatment will commence.

 

In most cases, treatment is carried out on the first appointment.


 

On average, we treat about ten new patients a day in addition to attending to our existing clients (not including domiciliary visits to nursing and care home and private residents.)

We want you to be one of our  special clients.   We will give you our complete focus whilst you are with us - please read through the information below and download/complete our forms where required
