Podiatry (formally known as chiropody) is the care of feet and the lower limbs. The job of a podiatrist (or chiropodist) is to correct and prevent deformities, as well as provide methods to relieve pain and treat infections. They will advise patients on the types of shoes to wear and can provide tailor-made insoles to correct problems such as flat feet and heel pain. In addition to helping people with support methods, podiatrists also help with issues to do with the skin and nails on your feet, for example, ingrown nails or cracked heels.
As a podiatrist works with the public and often within a team, it is important for them to have great communication skills and a caring nature.
A podiatrist's salary falls in line with the NHS pay structure. Therefore, a newly qualified podiatrist can expect to earn upwards of £22,128 a year and, with more experience, can earn as much as £41,787. If a podiatrist becomes a consultant, it is possible to earn more than this.
