Footcare Services


Did you know the average 60 year old will have walked  around the Earth about 4 times


Good Footcare is essential  for everyone but people with Diabetes, Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis need to be extra careful.  Serious complications such as foot ulcers or amputations are avoidable and you can also avoid pain, distress, reduced fitness for everyday life, time lost at work and loss of earnings by simply putting a care plan in place.

Diabetes Ireland opened its first Care Centre in Dublin, 2014 and  opened a second centre in Cork in June 2016.


We provide an excellent Podiatry service at these centres which is affordable, fast, effective and has no long waiting lists. We recruit people with many years of clinical experience to ensure you receive a high quality service.





Podiatry Services Include

  • A Diabetic Foot Screen and Assessment
  • Foot Care and Nail Care Advice and Education
  • Callus & Corn Removal
  • Specialised Footwear and Socks (subsidised prices)
  • Shoe Fitting
  • Communication with your GP where necessary
  • Appropriate Referrals, when required
  • Biomechanical Assessment for Orthotics


Orthotics are shoe inserts made from a mold of your feet and are only manufactured after a podiatrist has conducted a complete evaluation of your feet, ankles, and legs, so the orthotic can accommodate your unique foot structure and pathology.
