"Podiatry Scheme at Calverton Health Centre"

About: Specialist services / Podiatry

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

As my wife is a beneficiary of the County Health Partnership's Podiatry Scheme I should like to record my total appreciation of its function. On every occasion she has been welcomed as someone of importance and the podiatrist has demonstrated a very genuine desire to relieve pain and help her walking process. She, the podiatrist, has carried out her work in a meticulous, unhurried, friendly manner which is truly commendable and valued.

It is also worthy of note that, whilst sitting and waiting for your appointment, every person comes out of the treatment room with a smile and claiming to be 'walking on air'. A wonderful tribute to staff and Scheme.

My comments apply equally to the reception staff at the Centre. They too are equally welcoming and helpful on every occasion.

In contrast to many National Health schemes, I cannot see any way of improving this service - long may it continue - please

My sincere thanks
