Welcome to ‘Reflective Podiatric Practice 

Written by podiatrists for podiatrists

Most Reflective Podiatric Practice articles are marked OPEN ACCESS. In 2020 newer articles were published directly from my website  If you cannot open an article shown here please contact me at davidt@busypencilcase.com but this is only available to people signed up and registered to receive my newsfeed by MailChimp.

The reason for changing the system was to allow easier access and readability on tablets and ‘phones. All the articles are best downloaded for printing or reading on a desk top or laptop computer.
