Instruments Used.....

Sterile Vacum Packed Instruments

Due to cross contamination The H. P. C. (Health Professional Council), was set up, to "Protect" the "Service User".
Its aim, to make sure, that not only Podiatrist, but the general health practioner, who is treating patient on a day to day basis, are:-
1. Practising with a "Protected Title" Podiatry

2. Take yearly "Continual Professional Day" courses, keeping up-to-date with modern techniques, and academic  knowledge, resulting in sometimes qualifications, and a general "Portfolio" of education

3. Ensuring that the surgery and its instruments are sterilised and vacuum packed individually for each patient

4 Ensuring that the old instruments are  disposed of individually and recorded on a database for future record checking

5. Ensuring that the "Work Ethic" by which we were trained , is always upheld  to the strictest  standards.

Nail Care
I do not work within the NHS confinements, and cutting of nails is something that I do within my surgery.
There are many types of nails, from,
1 "Involuted Nails" whereby the edges are curled into the skin),
2 Psoriasis nails, which are quite thick and flaky
3. Onychomycosis - infected toenails.
4. nychocryptosis - Ingrowing toes nails.
5. Onychogryphosis - Rams Horn nails.
6. Onycholysis - Separation of the nail from bed.
7. Onychia - Inflammation of the matrix and bed.
The above is to name but a few, all can be dealt with at my surgery, or if need be, referred to for analysis at your local hospital.
