Providing Quality Care

As a potential patient considering using my services, I will be a guest in your home or workplace and will get to know you and your feet very well!  I feel it is therefore important that you also know a little about me.  

Firstly, I would like to assure you that you can be confident in my professionalism and the services I provide.

I believe in establishing a patient centred relationship where you will receive appropriate care based on your needs and expectations.

Your Feet In Professional Hands

Here to help make the best of your feet…

So Why Did I Choose Feet?

I consider myself lucky that I actually like feet, any type of feet, and I will take great care of yours! 

Leonardo Da Vinci described the foot as ‘a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art’. I also find the foot and lower limb fascinating. The feet are intrinsically designed, each with 26 bones (which together are a quarter of the body’s total number of bones), 33 joints and over 100 ligaments, tendons and muscles all supporting the entire load of our body.

The lower limb is affected by many body systems and medical conditions and its biomechanical functioning is still being scientifically explored. As such, podiatry requires a wide range of knowledge.

I continue to enjoy expanding my expertise and the services that I can offer you.

I love the fact that I see a range of people from the young to those older in years, with feet considered ‘beautiful’ and feet in need of some extra attention.  I understand the importance of looking after your feet in order to enhance cosmetic appearance, reduce discomfort and improve mobility and I get great satisfaction in doing so.

Whatever your reason, if I can help you or a member of your family please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your needs.

Lesley Helliwell Podiatrist will take care of your feet

I will always provide a sensitive and confidential service where no individual will ever be judged or should feel embarrassed. 

Wide Knowledge & Skill


After gaining a BA (Hons) nursing degree at Lancaster University I worked as a Registered Nurse in Blackpool, mainly in the field of cardiology and research.

After 21 great years nursing, I decided to further develop my skills so that I could provide a high quality foot care service to people in the comfort of their own home or workplace.

Highly Qualified

Having studied and undertaken clinical training to become a Foot Health Practitioner, I earned a diploma with a Distinction Award.

With a passion for people and a desire to provide the best foot care possible, I continued study at The University of Salford to qualify as a podiatrist, where I gained a First Class degree and was awarded the student prize for best final year student.

Enhanced Care

My long nursing experience complements and enhances my foot care service. I have excellent interpersonal skills and I’m extremely caring, placing your wellbeing central to everything I do.

Registered as a Dementia Friend with the Alzheimer’s Society, I have increased awareness and sensitivities of people living with dementia.


I am registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) which only registers professionals that meet their high standards (hpc-uk.org/check) and I am a member of The College of Podiatry.

I also have an Enhanced DBS certificate (previously a CRB) if you wish to see it.  The Disclosure and Barring Service is a Government Department that checks for criminal records, plus any additional information held by local police that is considered relevant to the working role of the individual.

This helps prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children.
