Continual Professional Development
All members of the Blackhall Podiatry and Chiropody team strive to update and improve their knowledge. Our Podiatrists are highly skilled practitioners both in general practice and in their area of special interest and are constantly updating their education. We regularly attend postgraduate courses and conferences to ensure the latest techniques are employed. In addition, continual refresher courses in aspects such as cross-infection control and first-aid are attended by all team members.
