"Have to ring up every time to get an appointment"

About: Community Health Services / Podiatry

(as the patient),

I am suffering with advanced prostate and take chemo tablets and steroids they are working to keep the disease at bay.

No fixed podiatry appointment on a regular basis. Have to ring up every time to get an appointment.

I saw Carrie this morning who gave me some good advice about footwear and insoles.
