The Institute seeks to serve the whole of the profession of chiropody. Its members include chiropodists, podiatrists and foot care professionals, employed and self-employed. The Institute certificate of membership is accepted by most employing and licensing authorities, who know that members undertake to adhere to a strict code of professional conduct.
The Institute is a democratic organisation with the election of officers both local and national being decided annually by members. All members therefore play an active role in their own affairs. The Institute believes a self-governing body should follow an independent line for the progress and well-being of both the profession and the public it serves.
Please email Bernie for information regarding joining The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and to have a membership form sent.

Looking for People with Foot Problems
Optomen Television, the BAFTA award-winning producers of Mary Portas: Queen of Shops, Kevin McCloud’s Man Made Home and Heston Blumenthal’s Feast is producing a brand new TV medical series for the Discovery Network and we need your help.
In this series, we’ll be exploring a variety of health conditions in the hope that we can raise awareness on them. We’re looking for people with Foot Problems to take part in the programme to discuss their condition and to explain to others what it is like to live with it on a daily basis. By doing this, we’re hoping to raise general awareness on the condition, its symptoms and the types of treatment/care that is currently available.
We’ll also be working with a number of specialists throughout this series and, for those who take part in the programme, we can offer a free (off-screen) consultation with one of them. So perhaps you’d like a second opinion or advice on the types of treatments/care that is available to you?
