Podiatry Home Visits
We cover a wide area of Newcastle and the Central Coast
We understand that sometimes our patients find it challenging to get into the clinic: post-surgery, loss of license, immobility etc. We are proud to offer home visits for patients for general foot and diabetic care.
Podiatry home visits are done on a rotation and booked through our Morisset clinic.
Podiatry home visits may be covered by home care packages and EPC referrals from your doctor.

You most certainly can. It all comes down to what health fund you are with and what kind of cover you have. Get in contact with your health fund provider and ask them if you have Podiatry cover and, if so, how much.
