Practice Accreditation – 2018

We are pleased to announce that we have again retained our accredited practice status to the College of Podiatry which lasts for the next two years.

The aim of the Practice Accreditation Scheme is to help ensure best practice, achieve a high standard of care to patients and to ensure the correct protocols and procedures are followed to practice safely and effectively within the profession.

Once accreditation has been granted the practice agrees to the potential of being inspected and this year was our lucky year!

It was therefore arranged that the Private Practice Officer from the College of Podiatry was to visit our practice earlier this month for a full inspection of our clinical environment and all our protocols that we have in place which range from:

  • Adhering to NICE guidelines
  • All our decontamination processes and infection control are in place
  • Adhering to all clinical standards set by the College of Podiatry
  • Auditing notes and that we have peer review scheme in place
  • Complying with GDPR and patient confidentiality
  • Having a clear fee structure
  • In depth treatment planning
  • Onward referral to other specialisms including vascular, podiatric surgery, orthopaedic surgery, GP, physiotherapy, Diabetology
  • Safeguarding processes in place (adult and child)
  • And many more

The feedback we gained from the officer was excellent and we can only thank all the team involved that keep our standards flying high.

Thank you for reading.
