For GPs

Podiatry Overview

Minor Ops have been providing a high quality professional community-based podiatry since 2012.

Based in the North East, we are commissioned to provide an NHS AQP Core Podiatry Service by NHS North Durham, NHS Darlington and NHS Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield Clinical Commissioning Groups.

Patients are treated, close to their homes, by our friendly qualified podiatrists in specialist clinics in local GP practices, Primary Care Centres and local optician's premises throughout the North East of England. 

Patients will be provided with an initial assessment appointment within 4 weeks of referral, usually much sooner.

The service is available to patients within commissioned CCG areas. Please see our ‘referrals’ section for more details and exclusion criteria.
