This is a very important blog. 
 
I have been on my holidays and have come back raring to go (as we say in my native Northern Ireland).  
 
When I returned I was THRILLED to see my Private Practice Accreditation certificate had arrived.  
 
I didn’t even know that my application had been approved!  
 
Weeks and weeks of drawing up documents and policies and reading everything relating to best practice I could find had paid off. 
 
WHOOPIE!! 
If I had a pound for every time someone asked me this... I'd never need to work again! No, seriously this is the enigma of the podiatrist. So here we go... 
 
The titles of Chiropodist and Podiatrist are protected in the UK and this means that only professionals qualified and registered can legally use these to define their profession. Essentially the two are interchangeable but this can still be very confusing. 
 
So, what is the difference? Well, my degree is in Podiatry but one of the things I do is chiropody. There. Cheerio.
