The Dorking Footcare Centre - Practice Standards

Practice Standards

We regularly review our standards to ensure that we comply with national standards and best practice within the profession.  We can reassure all our patients that:

  • All instruments to be properly cleaned and sterilised before they are used
  • Our clinical staff undertake regular training to ensure their continuing professional development and to keep their knowledge and skills current
  • Patient confidentiality is respected and proper care is taken with patient records, both when used and later when they are destroyed
  • We explain all the treatment options available for your condition, and cost, so that you can make informed decisions about your treatment

If you have concerns

If you believe that we fall short of the high standards you expect, please let us know. We will be happy to discuss your concerns and answer any questions that you may have. We also understand the importance of patient feedback for making improvements in our service.
