Podiatry clinic of the year
Established in 1995 by Hilary Nossiter and her husband, The Forest Foot & Health Clinic is a podiatry clinic and surgery offering foot care and physiotherapy services. Podiatry assessment includes taking a holistic view
of the presenting foot problem, with the option of in- house cross-discipline referral to treat any joint, muscle or postural related problem. In February 2020, Jane Kraushaar and Christopher Gillingham purchased the practice and are continuing to build on the excellent reputation and high standards developed over the past 25 years. Jane and Christopher also own another award winning clinic – New Milton Foot Clinic.
The judges praised the extremely high levels of care provided at the clinic, where the patient is always respected and confidentiality is paramount. Treatment options and cost are explained in detail so that an informed choice can be made, and referral pathways are available for clients who need specialist care. All staff regularly engage in professional development to keep their knowledge and skills up to date and practice working methods are constantly reviewed. All clinical staff hold a
BSc (Hons) qualification and are registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). Meanwhile, the friendly customer service team are welcoming and professional as the first point of contact for new and existing patients.
