    Patient came to see me insisting he be referred to the NHS for a hyprocure stent operation to correct his pronated feet.

    I'm reluctant, because I don't know if NHS podiatric surgeons have the expertise to do the procedure correctly.

    Nothing to stop you doing a referral if you think it is appropriate.

    Do you know of Dr. Barlow-Kearsley of the Charing Cross hospital? His department seems to be one of the few NHS hopitals in the London area that do the stent operation.

    My patient is unable to work because of his severe Pes Planus and cannot afford to get the op done privately. I really want to help him but I don't want to put him through the lengthy and arduous procedure if it could ultimately make his condition worse
