About Nina's podiatry career and experience

The first 13 years of Nina's career were spent working for the NHS. For much of the time she was based at Torbay Hospital as the Senior Chiropodist, where she really enjoyed working with the various specialist teams, particularly with the diabetic clinic.

For several years, Nina has been the treasurer of the Devon Branch of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. Passionate about the area in which she works, our principal podiatrist takes an active role in organising study days for the members of the society.
