Anita and I were honoured to be invited to the 2015 Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists Awards Lunch at the prestigious House of Lords.
We enjoyed catching up with colleagues and friends within the Podiatry profession who had made some great achievements in their Podiatry careers. The day began with a greeting from Lord Kennedy of Southwark, Chairman’s welcome followed by the Long service, citation and meritorious awards.
After lunch there was more opportunity to socialise with friends and to make new acquaintances.
Anita said it was apparent throughout the day that all the Podiatrists attending seemed to be happy in their choice of career even those that had been practicing for many years. Podiatry has so many facets to it now and it was great to meet with those that have their own private clinics, those working in the NHS, those involved in research, as well as the very valuable lecturers and heads of the Schools of Podiatry.
Anita and I have now been In the Podiatry Profession for 28 years and have embraced the changes and advancements. Anita and I have been able to expand our Practices in order that we may be able to provide more onsite services such as foot scanning, prescribing orthotics as well as the fitting and supply of footwear.
All this means that we are constantly looking at new ways to make improvements. We feel that the support of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists has been of great benefit to us.
