KAREN HARPER - Health Care Professions Council - Ch29420
I am one of the proprietors of Archways Podiatry, and a member of the College of Podiatry. I qualified with a BSc (hons) degree in 2007 in podiatry from Salford University. This involve all aspects of Chiropody, including nail management, corns, fungal infections, and footwear advice.
I specialise in biomechanical and diabetic assessments, nail surgery, arthritis, vascular, dermatological and elderly footcare. Since qualifying I have gained much experience in permanent private practice within the Marple, Romiley and surrounding area. I'm now a firm believer in listening to my patients prior to making any clinical assessments of their needs. Prior to my career in Podiatry I spent 20 years as a post woman with the Royal Mail so I am well aware of how important looking after your feet is.
