In Oxford since 1981
Established by Elizabeth Humble-Thomas who has over 30 years experience, which means she knows everything there is to know about feet! Oxford Feet is a well-equipped and well-regarded modern practice with good links to all the local GPs and hospitals.
"I qualified in 1981 after spending three years studying at the London Foot Hospital. I then spent a couple of years in the NHS in west Oxfordshire before I began practicing at 3 George Street. When I joined the practice I increased the scope of the practice introducing nail surgery, silicone toe braces and orthotics and established Oxford Feet as it is today. I am at Oxford Feet for two and a half days per week.
I have a huge amount of experience, having come across and treated most foot problems during my career. I also have the insight to know when a patient would be better referred to another specialism. I thoroughly enjoy my work, in particular working out the cause of each person's foot problem and then how best to remedy it.
"I especially enjoy the relief that my treatment can give, and the positive effect it has on my patients' lives."

Podiatrist and Chiropodist - What's the difference?
Chiropody became a protected profession in 2003 and the name was changed to Podiatry (which is internationally recognised). Previously it was possible to study for a year and receive a certificate in Chiropody. Now the titles Chiropodist/Podiatrist can only be used by those who have a university degree, or who qualified with a Diploma prior to the introduction of Degrees.
