Do you get discomfort walking or running?

Podiatrists are expert in the biomechanics of the foot. We are very fortunate in Huddersfield to have a university department of Podiatry. They open up their services to the community. They charge a nominal fee, and will be very interested in your problem, and will work with you to solve it.

The department can be contacted by phoning 01484 472201 or by e-mailing

Care Phones

Care Phone

A care phone is the name of the phone that goes with the call for help pendants that you may have seen some people wearing.
