Podiatrists are the experts in treating a variety of foot and lower limb conditions which cause pain and suffering, leading to loss of mobility. From musculoskeletal foot and ankle pain, including those caused by sports injuries, to skin pathologies such as corns, ingrown toenails and conditions associated with underling medical conditions.
We provide a range of services designed to manage foot problems, including:
Podiatrists work with people of all ages and play an important role in helping all to stay mobile and independent.
This service is open to residents of Cwm Taf Morgannwg who have foot or lower limb problems which affect their health or mobility.
Each case is assessed on an individual basis and, if treatment is required, an agreed treatment plan will be implemented reflecting what matters to the patient.

The podiatrist will assess the health of your feet and lower limbs. If any issues are identified, these will be discussed with you and your podiatrist will explain how these might affect your future health or mobility.
Your podiatrist will work with you as you make choices about how you will manage these risks, before you agree a plan to manage your condition; which may require you to make changes to your lifestyle habits.
If your condition is unlikely to affect your health or mobility, you may not be eligible for NHS treatment.
