Very happy with my nail cut today. Toes feel a lot more comfortable and have confidence in using your services again. Also lovely to chat and get to know you a little.
I have gained over 20 years experience within both the NHS and the private sector giving me the ability to cater for all lower limb requirements including specialist areas such as diabetes, wound care, biomechanics, gait analysis, musculoskeletal issues, nail surgery and paediatrics.
After graduating from Northampton University School of Podiatry in August 2000, with the aim of becoming a musculoskeletal podiatrist, I started working full time for NHS Southwark PCT – Foot Health department for 2 years. I managed 2 large clinics and specialised in nail surgery, routine and diabetic foot risk assessments. I also worked closely with a specialist and gaining experience of musculoskeletal podiatry, injection therapy and in using the pedar pressure plate system.

IIn 2002, I married Paul, who grew up in Worcester and together we started the next stage of our life here. I worked in the NHS in Worcester, Redditch and Bromsgrove, and had some private patients in their homes.
In the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bromsgrove, I specialised in foot ulcers due to diabetic or other causes of neuroischaemia, and others due to disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. A few years later, there was a backlog of both child and adult patients with musculoskeletal pain and so I moved towards my first love of treating structural and muscular foot problems. After over 10 years, I moved to Gloucestershire Health and Care Trust as a Musculoskeletal Specialist in Cheltenham. In 2012, I started a Private practice in Barbourne Health Centre which I have now outgrown so I have moved to practice privately in Shearman Podiatry Clinic at 49 Upper Tything, Worcester.
I now give complete podiatric assessment, diagnosis and treatment and advice to private patients in order to treat their heel pain, metatarsalgia (forefoot pain), ankle pains and bunion tenderness, as well as corns, callus, ingrowing toenails and high risk feet (diabetic or other medical problems).
I have passed an accredited acupuncture course and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Cardiff Metropolitan University entitled The Musculoskeletal Studies of the Lower Limb (MSc) and the Shearman Podiatry Clinic is an accredited practice.
