Foot Health Practitioners

When will those Foot Health Practitioners get it? They are the bottom feeders thumbing their noses at the spirit and intention of the law to protect the public.

For those who do not know it. Chiropody/Podiatry in the United Kingdom previously consisted of the state registered sector and the non-registered sector. The registered sector had a 3-4 year diploma or degree. The non-registered sector did some short courses. Only those who were registered could work in the National Health Service.

Then along came the Health Professions Council (HPC) and they registered everyone to protect the public and protect the use of the title Podiatrist and Chiropodist. When the HPC came into existence, after the initial groups of registrations, you then needed a University degree to get registered after that.

So what did those providers do who offered the short block courses for the previous non-registered sector? They just changed their name to Foot Health Practitioners to avoid coming under the Health Professions Council.

This makes them bottom feeders who are thumbing their nose at the spirit and intention of the Health Professions Council and the law. Why does Podiatry Arena makeĀ  Foot Health Practitioners welcome?
