Hello, I've just found out about your service. My daughter is nearly 3.5 years old and has knock knees. The gap between her feet is quite big when standing and she can join her feet only with bending one knee forward. I would be very happy if you could offer us a proper assessment. Thank you very much.

Dear Paulina,

Many thanks for contacting us.

We would be pleased to assess your daughter in our gait clinic. At this appointment, your daughter will be seen by both a physiotherapist and a podiatrist who will provide a full assessment of her needs.

We will be in touch with you with the appointment details, and anticipate your daughter will be seen within the next 3 weeks.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Dear Stella

Many thanks for your website comment advising us of your son's walking pattern. We would be more than happy to review his walking in our specialist gait clinic and will happily take your email as a referral into the service.

Please could you contact me with your son's details so that we can arrange for an appointment for him to be seen in the next available clinic slot. You can contact me on Victoria.lambert1@nhs.net.
