Welcome to the Chiltern Foot Clinic – If you need any advice please call Judith on 07875 294068
The Chiltern Foot Clinic offers a professional service dedicated to the care of your feet and is run by Judith Corbett who is an experienced, fully insured and CRB checked Foot Health Practitioner. The Clinic was established in 2013 and is located within Holmer Green Dental Practice.
Patients include young and old, those with diabetes, arthritis, mobility and eyesight problems as well as those who love to give their feet a treat. Your feet are one of your most important parts of your body and are put under pressure all day long. It is best not to ignore any foot pain and problems, but to see a Foot Health Professional at the earliest opportunity.
Why seek help?
Foot problems are very common and can affect all ages. From corns and calluses, to fungal nail and skin conditions, what often may appear as something small and insignificant, can pose great difficulties with daily activities such as walking and exercise. Health issues such as diabetes, arthritis and poor circulation may cause foot problems but with regular care complications can be reduced.

- FREE Foot Health Check and advice

Patient safety, hygiene and confidentiality are paramount. Great emphasis is placed on clinical cleanliness and I abide strictly to the care guidelines set out by the British Association of Foot Health Professionals. Feet are cleansed with antiseptic before treatment, with aseptic work techniques used during treatment and all work surfaces are cleansed between patients. Instruments are sterilized in an autoclave and remain sterile in a vacuum sealed pouch until opened during treatment so there can be no risk of cross contamination or infection.
Why use a Foot Health Practitioner?
Foot Health Practitioners (FHP’s) are trained and qualified in both the theoretical and practical aspects of Foot Health to enable them to assess the condition of your feet, treat as appropriate and refer you if necessary. FHP’s provide routine foot care and maintenance for your feet using the latest procedures and techniques to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment for your feet.
