    :welcome::welcome: Kitty-girl, congratulations on leading the way that is fantastic!
    Welcome to Pod Arena I am sure you will find some very useful threads here.
    We look forward to your input.
    Perhaps you can get some of your fellow students to join and fly the flag for SWEDEN.

    Hi Kitty_Girl & :welcome: to Podiatry Arena,

    We have a few Swedish members on the site.

    Have a browse of the Member Map & add your details too if you wish.

    Hmm, I've just noticed there's no 'Swedish' translation on the Google interpreter. I wonder if Mr Admin can help? :confused:

    Totally away from all things feet for a moment... :rolleyes:

    I understand that Abba made more revenue for Sweden than the Volvo.

    My question is, are Abba still well loved in Sweden?

    I have just been to see Mama Mia at the cinema & everyone was dancing in the aisles. :D

    Best film I've seen in ages.

    Now, back to all things feet........ :drinks

    PS Lots of student information in the education forum.

    Hi once again Kitty_Girl, :D

    Podiatry in the UK is divided between those working for the National Health Service & those individuals working in private practice.

    In the UK the titles Podiatrist & Chiropodist are protected by law & individuals using these titles must be registered with the Health Professions Council.

    There are other individuals within the foot health industry who provide a limited service to patients usually utilising the title Foot Health Professional. These practitioners are not governed by the Health Professions Council & therefore are not subject to their rules.

    I understand these individuals have their own professional body which is separate from those using the protected titles.

    I believe this is similar to the Australian situation where Foot & Hand Carers also provide a limited service to patients.

    Many interesting (if somewhat heated) debates continue to be aired RE: the entitlement to provide foot health in the UK. {Please note: this information has been included for information purposes only following Kitty_Girls request for information on foot health provision in the UK. It is NOT intended to begin yet another heated debate. Thank you}.

    What is the current situation in Sweden?

    I gather from your post that Podiatry is a relatively new educational degree in Sweden.

    I would be very interested to learn more. :drinks

    Many regards,

    Mandy Brooks AKA
