Sam Barke

Podi­a­trist

Sam grad­u­ated from Sal­ford Uni­ver­sity with a BSc (Hons) in Podi­a­try and is reg­is­tered with the Health & Care Pro­fes­sions Coun­cil. This is legal recog­ni­tion of being ‘fit to practice.’

She is also a mem­ber of the pro­fes­sional body for podi­a­trists, the Col­lege of Podi­a­try, and attends the annual con­fer­ence and other (CPD) events to ensure that her knowl­edge and core skills in mus­cu­loskele­tal care are up-​to-​date.

Sam deliv­ers a pro­fes­sional ser­vice to meet indi­vid­ual client needs, refer­ring to other health­care pro­fes­sion­als appro­pri­ately. Her holis­tic, friendly approach is clear from the first time you meet her.

Dur­ing her under­grad­u­ate stud­ies, she worked in many NHS clin­ics across Greater Man­ches­ter and was placed at Sal­ford Royal Hos­pi­tal for a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary foot care clinic. She also vol­un­teered to work at the Home­less Clinic, an NHS 2018 initiative.

Foot issues often impact neg­a­tively on daily life and she gains great job sat­is­fac­tion from know­ing she is alle­vi­at­ing pain. Healthy feet, healthy life!
