We are registered with the Health Care Professions Council . This is a protected title used by medical professionals only. We continually update our medical knowledge by completing post graduate courses, and are regularly audited to ensure we meet registration requirements.

Most Health care providers such as Leeds Hospital fund, Simply Health to name a few, will cover the cost of your treatment dependent on your policy. Dee Smith is registered with BUPA but you will need a GP referral and a referral number before you attend your appointment.
I was a new patient and happen to mention that I had a calf cramp the night before which was tender. The Podiatrist listened to my pulses with a Doppler and assessed my calf. Within 40 minutes I was in A & E and on Warfarin as I had a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) which if left untreated could have killed me! Podiatry saved my life thank you.
I cannot stress how brilliant the service is. I had been limping for 6 months, seen physiotherapists and a foot surgeon with not much improvement. As soon as I walked into the clinic, the podiatrist spotted the root cause of the problem, one leg considerably shorter than the other. After 3 treatments, I am no longer limping and can get on with my busy lifestyle. I was impressed by the equipment in the clinic, which enabled me to monitor my progress by seeing actual footage of my gait!
Previous treatment from another podiatrist left me very nervous to have my ingrowing-toe nails treated and I don’t want nail surgery to remove them. Dee and Sarah have put me at ease and I no longer need regular treatment as the symptoms have subsided considerably.
