Who am I

Jonathan D. Lees D.Pod.M., M.C.Pod. HCPC Registration Number CH07404

General Background Information

This Practice in Amblecote was established in 1984 initially for the purpose of Nail Surgery specifically. Since the age of 7 years old I have had the vocation of becoming a Chiropodist, and after qualifying from the Birmingham School of Chiropody in 1979, I set up my private practice in Oldswinford, which was the first ever ‘Stourbridge Chiropody Practice’ run by a private ‘State Registered Chiropodist’. I also worked for the National Health Service in their Medical Centres, Clinics and Hospitals as a Senior Podiatrist Practitioner. In addition I gained much experience working in a private clinic in Birmingham.
All instruments are sterilised to the top standards (and were years before this was expected in official guidelines). The standard appointment time given for a normal treatment is three times that which I was allowed in the NHS. I have always managed to keep fee’s well below my contemporaries simply by being very efficient. I have never advertised and do not ‘sell’ products. The surgery’s air is filtered, and air-conditioned when needed. The waiting room as well as the surgery is private, although you are most welcome to have company during treatment if you wish.

What do those letters after the name mean?
