    First contact podiatry

    FIRST CONTACT PODIATRY My name’s Richard Keating and I have been a qualified podiatrist now for 7 years. I’ve a well-rounded experience within my profession having previously worked in community foot care, private practice, university lecturing and orthopedic hospital settings. I moved to Northamptonshire just recently and have started working across GP practices in the local area. I will be based at Byfield Medical Practice every Tuesday. The First Contact Podiatry service has been set up to reduce strain on GP services and allow patient’s access to a suitable specialist from their first consultation. If you have a foot or ankle pain or problem (whether that be heel pain, a toenail complaint or joint problem) then it may be more suitable to be booked in with the FCP Podiatrist at first consult than booking with the GP. I will be able to undertake certain joint injections and nail surgery and also deal with foot pain, however the service is not for ongoing regular foot care, for example toe nail cutting. Appointments can be booked with me by calling the surgery
