Andrew Boyle - Podiatry staff

I qualified in 1984 after studying for three years at the Northern College of Chiropody (Manchester/Salford).

The next four years were spent in NHS employment with Southport and Formby Health Authority. I had special responsibility for providing the nail surgery service , and for the treatment of those in specialist psychiatric care at Greaves Hall Hospital. In 1989, I took up a post with Liverpool Health Authority, with responsibility for developing and operating the Orthotics Department.

I also worked within the Orthopaedics Department at Royal Liverpool Hospital, as the chiropodist in a specialist foot health team, headed by the distinguished surgeon Professor Leslie Klenerman. I was involved with a research clinic that developed new techniques in the prevention, and treatment of neuropathic foot ulcers.

Alongside my NHS work, I developed my private practice, opening my first surgery in Formby in 1991. In 2000, I decided to commit to full time private practice and I ceased all my NHS work. Now there are three venues for treatment, Formby, Ainsdale and Maghull. At Andrew Boyle Podiatry I have wonderful associates who have a wealth experience and deliver the quality of treatment expected in my practice. Between us we hope to keep our patients comfortable
and mobile for years to come.

In July 2008, I was appointed by the R & A to provide the Podiatry service for The Open at Royal Birkdale Golf Club.

Janet Morris BSc Pod Med  MCPod

Janet Morris - Podiatry staffI graduated in Podiatry in 1994 from The Northern College of Chiropody at Salford University. I then worked for a short period for Chorley and South Ribble NHS Trust, gaining some valuable experience, before joining the Chiropody department in St. Helens and Knowsley. Here I was responsible for a range of duties within a community setting. This included clinical work, domicilliary visits, nail surgery, and the treatment and assessment of high risk patients.

I had the opportunity to join the Andrew Boyle Podiatry team in 2004 and now work entirely in private practice. I am based at Healthpoint in Formby.

As a lifelong resident of Southport it is good to work within my own local community. I really enjoy my podiatry work within private practice.  There is time to listen to my clients’ needs and work out the best way of helping their foot health to improve.

I am committed to CPD ( continuing professional development), and attend several courses each year arranged by the local Merseyside Branch of our Society. Recently I attended the College of Podiatrists Annual Conference in Liverpool, which I enjoyed very much.
