Barry E. Francis. FCPod.s, DPod.M, FCPodMed, HPC Registered.

I carried out my undergraduate training at the London Foot Hospital qualifying in 1964.  I became a Member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and State Registered in that year.  In the late sixties, I was a founder member, with others, of the Podiatry Association which was set up to promote training in podiatric surgery and the use of clinical biomechanics.  In 1970 I achieved membership of that body and a few years later was awarded fellowship.

I am employed by the West Essex PCT as a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon and was for some 15 years until 2005 a Consultant at Charing Cross Hospital, London.  I am also in private practice.  In addition to my clinical care of patients and surgical activities, I am a tutor and examiner in surgery.  I am a member of the Scottish Advisory Board promoting the implementation of podiatric surgery in Scotland.  I am a specialist assessor for the Council of Registration of Forensic Practitioners.

In 1984 and 1988 I was a member of the medical team of the British Olympic Squad and attended the Los Angeles and Seoul Games as podiatrist.  I was formerly a consultant to the LTA.

I sit on the governing Council of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and chair the Professional Conduct Committee for the same body.  I am a governor for the College of Podiatry.

I was contributing author to “The Foot” edited by Helal and Wilson 1988.  I have published a number of articles in the learned press.  I have appeared on television and spoken on radio on professional matters.  I have been retained by the Health Ombudsman.

I perform foot surgery for the NHS and on a private basis regularly, carrying out approximately 12-15 bone procedures per week.  All patients that I see are given a biomechanical assessment, many of which involve the use of clinical measurements and video analysis.  I prescribe orthoses on a regular basis.
