    Hello tonercm,
    I see from your next post that you say you are training to be an FHP. I would suggest that you make sure you know what exactly you are studying because if you don't you could be sanctioned by the HPC for Misuse of a Protected Title.

    Hi andersonkchan,
    I refer to this one,

    It seems this student doesn't know what they are studying.

    In UK there is a very big difference between "Chiropody" - which is not taught any more but is a "Protected Title" (as it Podiatry")


    and being an FHP, which is a title that can be used by anyone regardless of training levels. Training to be an FHP does not lead to HPC Registration - only a Podiatry degree does that.

    I hope that helps

    ah yes,
    I'm in Australia Catfoot, didn't know much about FHP, HPC etc, had to read up on all the links you've provided lol.

    you do make a valid point. According to that site - chiropodist & podiatrist are def protected..

    haven't seen the OP back yet tho.. hmm..
