A new podiatrist joins the practice
We are very pleased to announce that Jon Collins has joined the team at Bartholomew Way Clinic and at Paddocks Healthcare in Henfield.
Jon was first introduced to podiatry by his aunt who is a specialist rheumatologist in Dudley Primary Care Trust in the West Midlands.
Jon trained at the University of Brighton in the class of 2008 where he carried out 1000 hours of clinical practice in a special podiatric hospital in Eastbourne, in conjunction with several placements over the south east and London including;
- Kings College London with diabetic and at risk foot care team
- Princess Royal Hospital Hayward’s Heath with rheumatology specialists
- Royal Sussex Brighton with Musculoskeletal and diabetic specialists.
- A month in Lewisham PCT.
Since graduating from Brighton Jon has worked for a practice with clinics in south east London and Oxted, surrey where he has seen a wide array of conditions, ranging from diabetic foot conditions to sports injuries. Jon has also had experience working with Crystal Palace Youth Football Club and the Place Contemporary dance school, where he has screened children to see if their foot mechanics will cause problems in the future and has subsequently fitted them with orthotics to try and prevent the effects of poor foot mechanics and aid in injury prevention. He has also spent time in a number of gyms carrying out gait analysis and offering footwear advice to gym users in the London area.
Jon’s main areas of interest are diabetic foot care, biomechanics of the foot and lower limb, nail surgery and sports injuries.
Jon is available on Mondays and Tuesdays until February when he joins us full time.
