Part of the ASTEPAHEAD group

BB after many years noted that podiatrists focused mainly on cutting toenails! The more difficult and more technical work was left to be almost an after thought. Much of the work required more dedication and training, not something everyone was willing to put in.

As a result he decided that they would focus on key areas and develop staff who had a passion or special skill set so that patients could visit Podiatrists who had special knowledge + interest in that particular area.

It also means the Podiatrist are not busy, ready to run off and cut toenails instead of paying special attention to your particular condition + needs.

This meant the development of specialised clinics such as the Heel Pain Doctor.
