The Podiatry Department is involved in most areas of the hospital—Acute and Subacute wards, in Jacaranda and Logan Lodge. We also see patients in the Allied Health Outpatients Clinic. People of all ages, from young infants to the elderly, with a wide variety of ailments, can benefit from Podiatry.

How it works
When you first contact the Podiatry Department for an appointment you will be asked to fill out a form with information about your general health and your foot problems. Using this information, the Podiatrist will assign a priority, which is based on government priority tools. It is important that you give as much information as possible to enable us to assign a correct category.
Reception staff will notify you when an appointment becomes available.
After the initial consultation the Podiatrist will advise you if we can provide you with ongoing care. We do not cut nails of people with healthy feet.
