About Me

Olivia Dowd



'Uncomfortable feet can affect your well-being'
I trained at the university of Southampton qualifying in 2002 with a degree in Podiatric medicine.  I am a member of the society of chiropodists and podiatrists and HCPC registered.  I have enhanced DBS clearance (Disclosure and Barring Service) formally called CRB (Criminal Record Bureau). https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check
Since qualifying I have worked within the NHS in London. I have worked in routine clinics treating corns, callus, verrucas and routine nail care as well as more complex foot problems such as in growing toenails and foot pain. I specialised in 'high risk' feet and worked in a multidisciplinary hospital clinic treating complex foot wounds particularly people with diabetes. I also worked in private practice covering a range of foot problems.  
I am keen to develop my skills and further learning.  I regularly undertakes training to enhance my skills and keep my knowledge up to date.
