What is Practice Accreditation?

The Royal College of Podiatry in the UK administers a Practice Accreditation Scheme. Early on Stuart Berry and the team first led our sister office in Weybridge, Surrey, UK to practice accreditation back in 2005 and since growing and expanding the office in Niagara Falls Ontario, has led this office to Practice Accreditation also.

The aim of the Practice Accreditation Scheme is to help assure best practice, demonstrate a high standard of care to patients and to assure that correct protocols and procedures are followed to practice safely and effectively within the profession.

As an Accredited Practice, we have been able to demonstrate that:

  • We adhere to set guidelines.
  • All our decontamination processes and infection control are in place.
  • We adhere to benchmarked clinical standards.
  • We audit notes and that we have peer review scheme in place.
  • We comply with confidentiality and privacy benchmarks.
  • We have a clear fee structure.
  • We have a clear fee structure.
  • We undertake onward referral to other specialisms including vascular, podiatric surgery, orthopaedic surgery, GP, physiotherapy, Endocrinology as needed.
  • And many more.
