Welcome to Podium
The Inform Podiatry Newsletter

2016 has been a busy year including a research project, 2 conference presentations (Podiatry New Zealand Conference and Queensland Podiatry Conference) and a house renovation (the outside of the house is now light blue, not green and the scaffolding should be removed before Christmas).

I was recently in Western Australia with my wife Delma and we had a quick road trip around the south west corner.  This photo was taken at Lucky Bay (east of Esperance) in WA.  It's some of the most stunning coastline I've seen.

Inform Podiatry will be closed from Friday 23rd December 2016 and reopen on Monday 9th January 2017.  I wish you all a safe and relaxing Christmas and New Year.

New Inform Podiatry Website

The website has been redesigned to look and function the same on a computer, tablet or smartphone.

A blog section has been added which will eventually contain all of my information sheets.  Currently there are information sheets on diabetes but new content will be uploaded weekly and promoted through Facebook, TwitterGoogle+ and Linkedin.  Follow Inform Podiatry on one of these social media platforms to keep updated (click on your preferred icon below).

The patient booking gateway (online appointments) can be accessed from any Book Appointment button on the website or the Book Now button on Facebook.  It provides 24/7 access to an easy and convenient option to book your appointment online.
Further website developments for 2017 include FAQ and Services Provided pages.
