Kate Harrison – DChM LCh, Owner
Kate graduated from the prestigious Scholl school of Chiropody, in Sheffield back in 1998. While based at the Stratford branch of Scholl she gained a higher Diploma in Chiropodial medicine. An opportunity to start her own practice in Hinckley and Kenilworth allowed Kate to develop a complete foot care package that ensures that all clients leave feeling as if they are “walking on air”.
Kate is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council which is the standard recognised by private health care schemes if you wish to claim back the cost of your treatment. The HCPC only registers practitioners who meet their standards of training, professional skills and behaviour. Only practitioners registered with the HCPC are allowed to use the titles ‘Chiropodist’ or ‘Podiatrist’.
