Claire worked for several years as a specialist podiatrist in the NHS and has experience of working in a wide range of areas including: wound care, routine chiropody, diabetes, nail surgery, rheumatology and musculoskeletal clinics.

Can't thank Carol enough for the care she has shown to my ancient feet. Thank you!
Claire has been looking after my feet for 2 years now and they have never been better. I have had lots of problems with ingrown toenails and callus causing me so much pain it has meant I could barely walk. I can honestly say that since received routine treatment from Claire this has not been a problem, I am so grateful
My daughter had a particularly nasty verruca which caused lots of pain and discomfort. I received excellent advice from Claire at Winchester Podiatry and it has now gone
Very friendly and welcoming. I was put at ease form the start of my visit. I had quite severe heel pain and with strapping, stretching exercises and orthotics this has now fully resolved. Thank you!
My mother has been benefiting greatly from the care of Winchester Podiatry for some years now. The staff have gone above and beyond the service that I could ever have reasonably hoped for and have been an essential driving force when interacting with other health professionals. Claire and Carol have both been invaluable in maintaining the health of my mother
