GPs views (taken from survey)

In 1987 we introduced podiatric surgery to the Northampton area and this became very popular during a period before GP Fundholding was brought in by the Thatcher Goverment. Podiatric Surgery took off after this and resulted in the King’s Fund undertaking a report.

The King’s Fund produced a booklet on ‘The cost Effectiveness of Podiatric Surgery Services’ in 1997 using the results of a number of surveys. One survey within the publication  used our own study from 1993.
