Caring for your Feet

 

If you are unable to look after your feet because of poor vision or limited flexibility, you may need to see a Podiatrist. 
 

Find a Podiatrist

Sydney LHD provides podiatry services for people who are at particularly high risk of serious problems with their feet. Your will need a referral from your doctor to use these services. 
 
It is not necessary to obtain a referral to see a private podiatrist. The Australasian Podiatry Council  website can help you to find a local podiatrist. 
 
When you search their site, you can say if you need someone who:
  • speaks a language other than English;
  • does home visits;
  • is registered for Medicare benefits or Veterans Affairs benefits.
 
NSW Health provides a range of information on foot care in English and community languages.
