Hillary Nossiter - Podiatrist

BSc(Hons) D.Pod.M. M.Ch.S. Registered on the Health & Care Professions Council

I graduated in 2012 from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh with an honour’s degree in Podiatry. Since then I have gained many years’ experience in both the NHS and private sectors.

As well as routine podiatry and providing footcare advice, I have an interest in the more specialist areas such as biomechanics/MSK, nail surgery and using the latest advanced technology for certain foot problems. I continue to update my knowledge and skill base by undertaking courses, attending branch meetings and conferences.

I also think an important part of the job alongside the podiatric treatment is getting to know the patients, listening to their needs and communicating effectively so that a tailor made treatment plan can be produced that suits the patient for optimum care.

Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, exploring the New Forest, Hampshire and Dorset coastline.

I am keen cyclist and ex ballet dancer, but still like to get on the dance floor. I also enjoy going back home to visit family and friends in Scotland and in winter during Christmas holidays I like to get back on to the ski slopes.

Chris Gillingham – Operations Manager

The Forest Foot and Health Clinic was started in the New Forest National Park 25 years ago by Hilary Nossiter. It quickly expanded from a single surgery, to four fully equipped surgeries, which also includes Physiotherapy. In 2020 Chris Gillingham and Jane Kraushaar purchased the practice and are continuing to build on the excellent reputation and high standards developed at the practice over the past 25 years.

Podiatry assessment includes taking a holistic view of the presenting foot problem. Consequently, we are able to offer the patient an in-house, cross-discipline, referral to treat any joint, muscle or postural related problem.

We regularly review our procedures to ensure that they comply with the national standards and best practice within the profession.

Patients can be confident that the very best care is being provided within a safe environment.

Our review scheme, amongst other things, ensures that:

  • All reusable podiatry instruments are properly cleaned and sterilised before use.
  • All Staff engage in continuing professional development to keep their knowledge and skills up to date.
  • The patient is always respected and appropriate care taken with patient records, both when in use and later when they are destroyed.
  • Confidentiality is paramount at all times.
  • Treatment options and cost are explained so that an informed choice of treatment can be made.
  • Referral pathways exist for clients who need specialist care.
  • Practice working methods are constantly reviewed.
