"Treated like royalty, not just an OAP!"

About: Community Health Services / Podiatry

(as the patient),

This service is one of the best in the health service. As I have had a stroke and am now partially sighted – also a diabetic. This service is a tremendous help to me. I have always looked after my feet when I was a younger person.

When you phone the office they are very helpful and always very cheery and treat you like a friend, as well as a patient. The gentleman who treated me today made me feel very comfortable he was very friendly and a very helpful person. I feel after visiting the Bowery Centre on Elephant Lane I feel I have been treated like royalty, not just an old age pensioner!

Thank you for your kindness, and I hope I can carry on visiting the chiropodist. Once again, thank you from a grateful patient.
