About the Course


This course is suitable for Podiatrists, Chiropodists and Foot Health Practitioners, both in private practice and the NHS



The course covers the basic medico-legal questions a Podiatrist, Chiropodist or Foot Health Practitioner  may expect to come up against in private practice, including what to do if a legal claim is made, the HCPC internal investigation procedure, and Civil Law Rulings and Consent.



The course has a practical element which will ensure that the delegate comes away with a working knowledge of medico-legal procedures which are relevant to them and their practice.
