Body Matters Chiropody

Welcome to Body Matters Chiropody - The first Practice in Bristol to achieve accreditation from the College of Podiatry (formerly the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists)

Body Matters Chiropody offers a range of healthcare services and treatments detailed on this site.

All our Practitioners are fully qualified, registered with their Professional Bodies and have Professional Indemnity Insurance.

The Practice was founded in 1997 when Graham was based at the Orchard Medical Centre in Kingswood where he quickly established a reputation for high quality foot-care with a Personal touch! We moved to our current premises in 2007 when the Practice was expanding.

When our Professional Body – the College of Podiatry introduced an Accreditation Scheme we applied for and were the first Practice in Bristol to achieve Accreditation. This meant proving that we maintain high standards of care, cleanliness, professionalism and continued training to ensure we provide the highest level of care to patients.  Every 2 years we undergo further inspection in order to maintain our Accreditation.

When selecting a Practitioner to care for your feet, please ensure you ask for details of their qualifications.  Not everyone is trained to the same level nor are they permitted to carry out some of the treatments we provide. In order to use the title Chiropodist or Podiatrist a person must, by law, be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).  You can check the Register at www.hcpc-uk.org and click on 'Check the register'.
