Podiatry Bexley

Podiatry is the preventative care, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs.

The team provides a high risk adult service only; patients are only eligible for treatment if they are currently at risk of developing foot ulceration (ie have peripheral sensory neuropathy, PVD or past/present foot ulceration).

The team treats patients with a range of medical conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as providing routine treatments and wound care, as well as a nail surgery service to people over the age of 18.

The Podiatry team is open between 8.30am and 4.30pm.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
