Gillian Garcia

HCPC registered Podiatrist

I attended the Sussex School of Podiatry graduating in 1987.

Initially I worked in the NHS gaining invaluable experience in all aspects of podiatry. Following the birth of my daughter in 2003 I decided to reduce my NHS hours and began working privately based at Ingledale.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and I am also a member of the College of Podiatry. Both these associations regulate clinical working practices ensuring that I provide an up to date, safe quality treatment.

In my spare time I enjoy golf, running and walking my dogs so I feel that I can empathise with my patients when they experience problems that affect the enjoyment of their chosen activity.

I offer a professional but friendly service and am always happy to discuss your foot problems.

I also offer a domiciliary service if you are unable to attend appointments at Ingledale.
