Note – An FHP completing this or any similar FHP course cannot carry out surgical or invasive procedures, cryosurgery or prescribe orthotics unless further training is undertaken by qualified course providers. They cannot by law call themselves Podiatrists or Chiropodists since any practitioner using these titles must be trained to degree level. FHPs are not required to be regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council whereas it is a requirement for degree level Podiatrists/Chiropodists to be registered/regulated due to the more intensive level of medical and surgical procedures carried out and therefore the more in depth training required.
