Welcome to my November Newsfeed 2020

Enter this competition to win my latest book, scroll down a little to find out more.


‘Selling Foot Health as Podiatry’. You can read a review by Beverley Wright by clicking on her name.

The aims of Podiatric Reflective Practice

Each month I publish a Newsfeed for podiatrists and other healthcare professionals from my Clinician Portal. While the intention was originally to create articles that met some of the rigours of scientific papers, most were intended to have a lighter emphasis. Each article has something to reflect upon and this is the basis of the newsfeed. You can sign-up to receive the newsfeed.

Since I started the newsfeed back in March 2018 I have felt a need to avoid duplication wherever possible. Podiatry journals themselves are metamorphosing and open access to other materials mean competition grows. My philosophy is to provide material that reflect and promotes our profession. The world has been changing not least because of the corona virus. This means that to the wise podiatry needs to embrace more than feet if it wants to stay on the big stage. The time is here to find out if this newsfeed needs to review its key objective and take reflection further. Your say can make a difference. Hence I want to encourage dialogue and offer you the opportunity of a gift. Please do take the survey.
