The term ‘Podiatrist’ is a relatively new word and title which replaces the word ‘Chiropodist’. The title more accurately describes our profession. However both titles are still in common use, and are now protected in law to safeguard the public.
Your Chiropodist / Podiatrist will have undertaken a full-time three year professional training, which ended with Membership of the
Chiropodists and Podiatrists and State Registration on the Council for Professions supplementary to Medicine. The latter organisation was replaced with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
State Registered Chiropodist as a title has been replaced with HCPC registered. It is a requirement of the HCPC that all Podiatrists undertake annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to maintain their registration.
