The Podiatry Service provides a specialist role in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of people of any age that have a foot problem combined with an underlying medical condition that may put their foot health and mobility at risk.
They provide treatment of skin and toe nail pathology, nail surgery procedures, management of foot and ankle musculoskeletal problems with provision of orthoses (a brace, splint, or other artificial external device serving to support the limbs or spine) and injection therapy and wound care with debridement (medical removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue to improve the healing ) for foot ulcerations.
Home visits are provided for bed bound patients.
You can access this service if you have a GP in Coventry.
Your GP or health professional will need to submit a referral on your behalf.
