MSSCh Dip.Pod.Med MBChA
Hello, I'm Richard Taylor I have been working in chiropody and podiatry for many years bringing welcome relief for many patients. Most of my work is surgery based although I do offer a home visiting service for those who find it difficult to get about.
I was trained at the British School of Chiropody and Podiatry based in Maidenhead, Berkshire. I am qualified in general chiropody, biomechanics, cryosurgery, and sports injuries. As such I have a diploma in podiatric medicine. These skills enable me to undertake a very professional service, dealing with all aspects of the foot and the many and varied problems that arise, from corns and callous through to verruca and in-grown nails.
I am registered with the Health Professions Council who maintains strict disciplines to ensure that the best level of service is always being offered.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Noreen Burke and I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2010 with and Honours Degree in Podiatry. I am also a Registered General Nurse and obtained that qualification from St. Vincent’s University Hospital and University College Dublin.
Originally from County Clare in the West of Ireland I moved to England four year ago to pursue a career in Podiatry. Married with two young children I have chosen to work in the private sector to fit in with the busy schedule that family life brings. I have a keen interest in the health and well being of all my clients and strongly promote the importance of good foot health.
Your feet take you thousands of miles in a lifetime and it is my aim as a podiatrist to keep clients mobile, active and pain free for many more miles yet to travel.
I look forward to meeting and treating Richards existing clients and welcoming many new ones to the practice.
I qualified as a Podiatrist in 2012 from the University of Southampton and began working for the NHS based in Newbury; there I treated patients with a wide range of medical and podiatry conditions. With over five years experience in the NHS I made the change to the private sector to enjoy a better work/life balance.
I am passionate about providing a good service and appreciate how fortunate I am to enjoy what I do!
My other passion is sport, I currently play south regional netball and spend most of my evenings playing! I also partake in other sporting activities such as kayaking, climbing and surfing.
