Getting back into Podiatry advice

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for some advice on getting back into Podiatry after a long gap. I graduated in 2010 with a BSc in Podiatry but never practiced due to ill health. My health has improved and I'm looking into the possibility of restarting my Podiatry career. However, as you can imagine, I'm now pretty rusty. What would be the best way of getting back in the profession? How easy is it to set up a private domiciliary business in Edinburgh? Thanks in advance, any advice would be appreciated.

    I would try to find a nice friendly private practice who can help with all your hours of experience/cpd and hopefully take you on at the end of it.

    To remain a podiatrist you will have to fulfil HCPC requirements, whatever you do.

    Probably the best way forward is to look at the SCPod mentoring service, since you will also have to join a professional body for your PI insurance.

    Your alternative is to deregister completely, and practice as an FHP. Please note that although PI insurance is not mandatory, you would be extremely unwise to practice without it.

    This thread and a mum at my daughter's school (who also want to return to practice) have motivated me to add a new Boot Camp to the two I already have (Clinical Biomechanics Boot Camp and Running Shoes Boot Camp) ... have started work on the CPD content to meet requirements in as many countries as possible. Should be starting in a month or so.
