Recently a patient asked us to include information for those patients who might be seeking the professional help of a Private Physiotherapist or Podiatrist / Chiropodist.

These professionals hold the following qualification:
Chartered Physiotherapist or Registered Physiotherapist
To find out the names of these practitioners working locally please goes to the following website:
Equally to find a professionally trained and qualified Podiatrist / Chiropodist who working locally and is registered with the Health Professional Council please visit:

As part of their treatment many patients already see a NHS Physiotherapist.
If you feel you need to do so then you will first need to make an appointment to see your GP.
If you have foot problems and suffer from certain medical conditions you may be able to self-refer to the Podiatry Department at Leigh Infirmary. Please ask at Reception for more details.
