A rewarding career

UNPRECEDENTED demand for podiatry services and a shortage of new graduates has resulted in Shepparton’s Nixon Podiatry feeling the squeeze as they work hard to accommodate all their patients.

“I have been in business for 13 years and have always managed to recruit a new graduate to commence at the start of a new year,” podiatrist and director of Nixon Podiatry, Sally Howes said.

“As the demand for podiatry services has increased dramatically over the last few years, there has been an increased demand for new graduate podiatrists”

The registration body, AHPRA, was delayed with new graduate registrations which thus delayed podiatrist recruitment, a knock-on effect from COVID-19.

Nixon Podiatry provides quality treatments for a wide range of foot complaints, including sports injuries, diabetes assessments and management, nail and skin conditions and general foot pain.

They also offer advice and management of older people who have a risk of falls along with care of ageing feet.

Nixon podiatry welcomes applications from registered podiatrists to join their bright and thriving clinics located at 116 Nixon Street 5831 3169 and 38 Vaughan Street 5858 5595 and please forward applications through to [email protected]
