Sheffield puts best foot forward
"A Foot Above®" acquires "The institute of Chiropodists" Sheffield Chiropody & Podiatry Centre

2th October 2012 

Sports Orthotic Limited under the “A Foot Above®” brand acquires "The Sheffield Chiropody and Podiatry Centre” from The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IOCP).  Previously the Scholl Training School and in more recent years The Sheffield Chiropody & Podiatry Centre, the private practice clinic at 11 Rockingham Gate, Sheffield S1 4JD joined the “A Foot Above®” portfolio on 12th October 2012.

Sports Orthotic Limited worked with Mrs Jacquie Drane, IOCP Director & Treasurer, to ensure the smooth transition of The Sheffield Chiropody & Podiatry Centre business and is delighted that the staff employed there and the excellent reputation of the clinic will continue under the umbrella of the “A Foot Above®” brand and Sports Orthotic Limited.

In a joint statement, Jacquie Drane for the IOCP and Darren Bloore, Director of Quality Assurance & Compliance, Sports Orthotic Limited said “Patients and customers will recognise the professional and friendly service that has been provided over the many years the clinic has been operating from 11 Rockingham Gate, Sheffield. Rest assured, that both existing and new customers will continue to enjoy these professional services, offered by Sports Orthotic Limited and the ‘A Foot Above®’ brand.”

With its continued strategy of growth and development, the newly acquired private practice clinic will be putting its best foot forward as it springs into step serving Sheffield; caring for its foot problems and offering effective and affordable Chiropody, Podiatry and Custom Made Orthotics.

The Sheffield Chiropody & Podiatry Centre is where HCPC Registered Podiatrists will continue to provide professional footcare services; tending to clients tired and aching feet. This fourth clinic in the “A Foot Above®” portfolio, joins with the existing successful Chiropody, Podiatry & Foot Healthcare Centres in Beeston Nottinghamshire, Ilkeston Derbyshire and Daventry Northamptonshire. The new Sheffield clinic will operate Monday-Friday 9am-5.30pm, and Saturdays 9am-12.30pm.

HCPC Registered Podiatrist, Jayne Pellatt BSc (Hons) joins the existing team at the Sheffield clinic, bringing with her many years experience from a research background and a degree in Podiatry from the University of Huddersfield.

Stephen Gardiner, Director of Clinical Services of “A Foot Above
®” Limited said "Jayne will complement our current clinical team with her enthusiasm and clinical knowledge in Podiatry; from general Chiropody through to Nail Surgery, Gait Analysis, Biomechanical Assessment and Custom Made Orthotics. Jayne will be a key addition to the existing
team, joining Tracy Lettice, HCPC Registered Podiatrist and Denise Mirfin, Clinical Receptionist at the Sheffield city centre location.

Foot problems such as corns, callus, verrucae or ingrown toenails; to extended problems which involve Nail Surgery, Biomechanical Assessments and Gait Analysis for custom made orthotics: shoe inserts which can alleviate foot, gait and back pain problems – will be part of a days work at The Sheffield Chiropody & Podiatry Centre.

We aim to develop the services available at our new Sheffield clinic, offering similar treatments and products as at our other branches within the UK; bringing together the same first class clinical practices, stellar customer service and value for money.

Sports Orthotic Limited and “A Foot Above®” brings first class Podiatry services into the 21st Century, making a real difference to people’s lives and the local community from our modern and professional clinics.”
