We also urge you to make sure the podiatrist you may be looking at or planning to see, has a clinic and is not a “home visit”, “domiciliary” service or similar. They may still have a pin/marker on the map but this may be a personal address or just located in the centre of the area in which they offer a home visit service.

Podiatrists/ Podiatry Clinics
Currently it is free to list your clinic on PodiPedia and there are no monthly listing costs or charges. We reserve the right to implement a subscription based service or other model of charging for listings on PodiPedia in the future. You will be notified well in advance of any changes and given the opportunity to remove your listing or sign up for the subscription service. Failure to do either would result in us removing your listing at the time of changing to a subscription based service.
A listing will remain on the directory unless you breach these terms and conditions or for any other reason PodiPedia is forced to remove your listing. Depending on the circumstances, we may offer a refund if appropriate. The listing will be removed if Podi-Pedia Ltd goes out of business or this website is removed or ceases to operate. Changes or alterations may also occur if PodiPedia as a website or Podi-Pedia Ltd as a business is sold.
You are responsible for the information in your listing/on the directory. This should be information that is already available on the public domain. Please do not share any information that you are not happy to be readily available to the public as podipedia.co.uk is an open access resource.
From time to time it may be necessary for the site, or part of the site, to be offline for maintenance or updates. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We will not be able to refund you/ your business for disturbances to the directory or website.
We will endeavour to carry out any maintenance or updates during quiet periods of the day.
The administration fee is non-refundable after 14 days. This listing cost is to cover administrative duties that go into design and maintenance, as well as the site hosting costs and search functionality costs. Therefore each listing incurs a cost to Podi-Pedia Ltd.
You can remove your listing(s) from the directory at any time.

Podi-Pedia Ltd is not responsible for the accuracy of your listing and its location on the map or directory. These are your responsibility. If you are having a problem placing the location of your pin (clinic) on the map in the correct place, please contact us.
If you offer a home visit or domiciliary service and do not have a clinic location, you can place your pin/location on the map as your home address or in a central location in the area in which you practice (this is the clinic address for google maps) but you must specify in the “clinic address for listing” that you are a home visit service and this will make this visible to the public.
