About Judith Swift

 

 

I qualified as a state registered Chiropodist/Podiatrist  in 1987 after completing a

three year full time course at the Northern College of Chiropody  (now part of University

 College Salford)

After qualifying  I went straight into full time work and have since gained over 25 years

experience in private practice and NHS  Podiatry.

 

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Science (BSc in Podiatric Medicine)

 Certificate in Local Anaethetics and Certificate in Health Promotion.

 

I am also a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists

 

 

My experience 

From 1987  I have worked in the NHS in the Fylde area providing a variety of treatments to patients including  routine chiropody , nail surgery, diabetic and rheumatoid foot care, wound care (treatment of foot ulcerations), vascular assessment (a  Doppler is used to assess circulation to the legs) and providing biomechanical assessments resulting in the perscription of  orthotics.

My main interest within the NHS was diabetes. I  worked with Diabetic  Consultants at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. My Health promotion work has involved developing and delivering group diabetic foot education sessions in the Blackpool and Fylde area.  I was  also involved in clinical education of fellow Podiatrist  and other professionals.  including being a Clinical Educator for Huddersfield University Podiatry students.

In February 2011 after 23 years of working for the NHS I left to devote my time to setting up my private practice in the Milnthorpe, Kendal, Carnforth areas and to  work as an associate for private practices in Morecambe and Cleveleys.

 

It can be difficult to decide which Podiatrist/Chiropodist to choose.  However it is essential that you first check whether the professional  treating your feet  is genuine and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. You can check on line at

 

Hobbies and interests

 

On a more personnal note I moved form the Fylde area to

Silverdale nearly ten years ago. In my spare time I enjoy

voluntary work at Leighton Moss RSPB bird reserve,

 climbing, gardening  and  painting.  

Manual dexterity and good eye sight are essential to both my Podiatry

 work and artwork! If you would like to view more of my art work I exhibit

each year on the  Silverdale and Arnside Art trail.

 

My paintings can be also be viewed  at  

 

I hope hear from you soon.
