About Us


Advanced Chiropody & Podiatry are HCPC Registered Chiropodists and Podiatrists, members of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and registered with the Health Care Professions Council. HCPC registered chiropodists now use the title “Podiatrist” which is the internationally recognised name for clinicians who specialise in foot health.

Deborah Richardson and her associate team of friendly chiropodists and podiatrists are practicing in Gateshead, Newcastle and surrounding areas of the North East. They all trained at Durham School of Podiatric Medicine, graduating in 1990 and have thirty years experience working in the friendly and relaxed environment of private practice.

The practices are based at Heworth Metro, Gateshead and Gosforth, Newcastle.

Chiropodists and Podiatrists specialise in assessing, diagnosing and treating abnormalities and diseases of the lower limbs. They are trained to alleviate, prevent and correct these disorders and provide professional advice on proper footcare to patients of all ages and walks of life.
