Welcome to Howlett & Dickinson Chiropodists and Podiatrists
Howlett & Dickinson is a podiatry practice based in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne and our practice is the first in the North East to be accredited by the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. This means we have reviewed our standards to ensure they comply with the national standards and best practices within the profession.
The Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists is the largest professional body within the United Kingdom. Members are registered with the health & care professions council. (hcpc)
Our practice is based at 25 Ashburton Road in Gosforth and we offer the full range of chiropody treatments, complimentary therapies.
Podiatrist’s fees reflect the quality of service and expertise, legal requirements and safe practice.
With the continued increased costs of new regulation, compulsory ongoing professional training, and waste disposal, it has become increasingly expensive to practice Podiatric Medicine. Therefore we have had to set out fees to take into consideration the increased costs, and to comply with legal requirements.
Our Practice uses a sterile instrument pack for each patient.
What's the difference between a Chiropodist & a Podiatrist?
Podiatry is the generally accepted new title for Chiropody.
It is currently the highest standard of foot healthcare in the UK.
A Podiatrist is a professional person devoted to the study and medical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremity.
