Moray Community Podiatry Services - NHS Grampian
Record Number: 1836
Phone: 01343 553077
Moray Podiatry Services are provided by appropriately qualified NHS podiatrists in health centres and hospitals across the Moray area.
Patients are asked to attend a clinic for treatment. Where a person is unable to attend a local clinic due to their very poor mobilty, there is a very limited home visiting service.
The podiatry service does not provide a simple nail cutting service, but we are happy to show anyone how best to do this for themselves (or family member) or signpost to others who can help with this.
General community podiatry clinics are held in Elgin (Elgin Health Centre and The Glassgreen Centre), Lossiemouth, Forres, Rothes, Aberlour, Dufftown, Tomintoul, Keith, Cullen, Buckie (Ardach Health Centre and Seafield Hosp), Fochabers .
Some podiatry specialist clinics or resources are held centrally in Elgin such as Nail Surgery clinics, Diabetic clinics, Muscloskeletal (MSK) clinics and podiatrists with a clear Educator remit to support the national Self Care Agenda/Secondary schools programme/Education of patients or other professionals or agencies - education may be given on a one to one basis, or as part of a larger group .
Eligibilty for Treatment
The podiatry service can be accessed by anyone (regardless of age) who has a foot care need as determined by a podiatrist at an assessment appointment. This may include a wide range of conditions such as people with gait abnormalities, foot or toe deformaties, medical conditions such as diabetes/arthritis and resulting foot problems, or acute conditions such as ingrowing toenails.
Where there is any doubt as to a person's eligibility for treatment the Podiatry Manager should be consulted.
