What’s the difference between a Chiropodist, Podiatrist and Foot Health Practitioner (FHP)?

There are two levels of training to undertake foot care:

  • A 3 year university degree
  • The Foot Health Practitioner/Professional diploma

Those completing a 3 year degree are called Podiatrists whilst those completing the diploma are Foot Health Practitioners (FHPs).

FHPs are qualified to undertake basic foot care treatments as mentioned above however they are not qualified to undertake any procedures requiring local anesthesia.  In the case of ingrowing toenails, depending on the severity of the condition, a referral to a podiatrist may be required.

The term chiropodist, whilst still in use, is no longer used by those who have qualified since 2003.  Chiropodists will have undertaken training to diploma or degree level and registered with the Health Professionals Council (HPC) prior to 2005.
