I'm looking for someone, preferably within easy reach of London Bridge/Borough, who can sort out some problems I'm having with an ankle/foot. I was seeing a podiatrist but the level of care was ludicrously low, so I'm looking for a recommendation. It would be handy if anyone responding can give me an idea of cost, too!

You sound like you want to go private, but the NHS has a self referral podiatrist service on Grange Road. They are very good, but you wait a while for an appointment.

Try London Footcare Centre just off Guy's Hospital. Tel: 0208 403 2571. I just been there last week seeing a guy called Keith. I have had 2 appointments with him and so far so good.

I haven't been to Keith but quite a few friends have & all say he is excellent

Thanks for the suggestions. I have been to the place on Alscot Road, but was unhappy with the treatment I received there. I'll try the Footcare Centre, I think.

How much is a private podiatrist? (just in case I need to see someone about my planter facilitis).

I'd be interested too, and for the same reason! (is it contagious???)

Plantar fasciitis is a very very painful condition. I had it underneath my heel for a long time. When your walking no pain, when you sit down thats when my pain started. they can inject it with steroids apparently but the condition takes longer to heal. Nurofen type drugs help.
I used to protect my heel with a cheap foam inner sole cut into a heel shape and taped on..

just looked on the site and it reminded me that when you first start to walk the pain starts...and wears off within a few steps..

Actually the patient has some brilliant excercises for it, wish I had the internet when I was younger! would have saved a lot of hassle...
