For the January 2011 meeting we were given a very interesting and thought provoking talk by Kirsten Jones, a local Podiatrist/Chiropodist on foot care. It certainly brought home the importance of looking after your feet and the potential consequences if you do not, the pictures were quite gruesome!. She gave much good advice on how to avoid the potently serious consequences and answered question from those present. She also explained that there is in fact no difference between a Podiatrist and Chiropodist. The name Podiatrist was brought in when those practising in the profession where required to hold approved qualifications and register with the professional body, however Chiropodist is still in common use.
