Chiropodist Who Swore At Patient Guilty Of Misconduct

Crossword roundup: Humongous chiropodists

Christine Johnson, aged 71 at the time, told the older woman youre not leaving my f****** clinic when she suggested arranging her appointment for another day. A conduct and competence committee of the Health Professions Council (HPC) heard Johnsons attitude changed during the appointment in Rhyl, North Wales, in March last year. She became abusive after a young man put his head around the door of the room to talk about a washing machine, the hearing in Cardiff was told. Chairman Ian Crookhall said she used extremely inappropriate and abusive language, which upset her (the patient). She said, I dont care about your f****** car and I dont care if you get a f****** ticket, told her she could not leave because the clinic door was locked and said I dont care about your f****** grandson when the woman said she should leave to pick up her grandson. Mr Crookhall said there was no misconduct before Johnsons attitude changed towards the woman, who was having her first appointment with the chiropodist. She also showed the woman a tray full of nail clippings, threw them in the bin and put the tray under her feet without cleaning it, but this did not amount to misconduct, the panel ruled. It found her fitness to practise was impaired and gave Johnson, who was not at the hearing, a three-year caution order. She was also cautioned for another occasion when police were called to a domestic incident at her home in June last year after she had been out drinking. As she was being arrested she was verbally abusive and kicked an officer in the groin.

Chiropodist accused of inflicting pain on purpose

The locum podiatrist showed JS a video of a teenager performing a sexual act, before producing a photograph of a woman in a clothes shop changing room. Asked how he got the image, he replied: ‘I can go wherever I like.’ In an effort to change the subject, JS mentioned that she had previously lived near an army barracks and could see the soldiers practising their drills. Wisson replied: ‘I bet you loved that, all those squaddies, I bet you used to to rub up against the window.’ The chiropodist then began talking about an 11-year-old girl, who he described as ‘well developed’ before claiming he had ‘taken it upon himself to teach the girl about the facts of life’. Only four months later, in August 2009, he invited a woman, known as Mrs A, to a clinic in Perry Barr, Birmingham when it was empty. The married patient said he then asked her to remove her clothes and massaged her legs and thighs near her bottom, telling her he ‘just wanted to meet a nice woman’. New death at poisoning hospital as police quiz male nurse amid fears FOURTH patient has become victim Mrs A managed to phone her husband and asked him to pick her up immediately.

Mr Cookall said Wisson had a ‘ridiculous and fanciful’ idea that JS was ‘anti-male’ and that Mrs A and her husband made up the allegations against him. The panel chairman said that Mrs A had been afraid of being sexually assaulted. He told Wisson: ‘She was clearly a vulnerable woman and has been left ashamed, embarrassed and feels dirty after what you did to her.

A CHIROPODIST was surprised at being denied permission to open a new specialised shoe stall in Maesteg. Stephen Lloyd, from Heol y Llwyni, Garth, has been a practising chiropodist at the Talbot Street market for the past four years, helping elderly patients get rid of corns and bunions. But Mr Lloyds plans to run a stall dedicated to specialised footwear were turned down by the market manager. Mr Lloyd said: They initially turned me down last December when I first applied. I then contacted them again with a business plan, but they came back and said there was too much of that sort of thing in Maesteg. I cannot understand it. As far as I am aware, there are no shops at all of this kind in the Llynfi Valley. I would be selling footwear for people who have difficulty walking, as well as some ordinary shoes on a separate stall. Council officers have cancelled my appointments to meet with them in the past and they seem to make up the rules as they go along. Mr Lloyd has been a chiropodist for 17 years and has seen his trade grow rapidly in the Llynfi Valley and surrounding areas. A council spokesperson said: We received a request in February from a tenant who wanted to expand their chiropody business across four units and include the sale of footwear. This was turned down as the proposal was to primarily increase the tenants non-retail business, and it did not match the councils aim of creating a vibrant, diverse and prosperous market by increasing the diversity of products and introducing new ranges of merchandise and provisions. The tenant was offered an adjacent retail unit instead, but this was declined.

Francis, who worked for NHS Shetland, faces a Health Professional Council disciplinary hearing in Nottingham. It is expected to last six days. It is alleged that she “demonstrated an unhealthy attitude towards pain” by using a toe-popping technique that caused a patient “excessive pain and bleeding”.

Introduce yourself to Mr Chiropodist

In this Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014 photo, a Sadhu, or Hindu holy man, attends the annual traditional ...

Meet Dharminder Kumar Wadhera, a Chiropodist. Though the dictionary defines Podiatry as another name for Chiropody, the two are different as chiropody cures feet problems and does minor surgery without bleeding or pain. Though the art of chiropody was introduced in India by British it was only Bata Shoes who decided to take further the legacy. Dharminder then an employee of Bata was sent to the companys training institute in Kolkata to learn the art. He says that the knowledge of chiropody is rendered through guru-shishya parampara, I used to assist R R Sharma and V K Arora at the original outlet in Connaught Place and when they retired, I went for training to Kolkata in 2000 and acquired the skill of chiropody. Dharminder explains that his work requires a lot of skill and patience as he deftly cuts a nail like an artisan who carves a jewel and therefore calls it scientific pedicure which is different from cosmetic pedicure available at beauty parlours. But what does he do? A chiropodist treats corns, callouses and warts, indulges in diabetic footcare; nail care; foot surgery and almost all the problems of the feet area below the ankle. And all this sans any pain! A boon for those suffering from various problems of the feet. He has treated a number of people in his two decade old career. But the man believes in serving society and does not want to quit despite it being not a very lucrative job. He lists amongst his clients Kiran Bedi, Shabana Azmi, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Rajya Sabha MP, Ram Vilas Paswan and former Speaker Lok Sabha Somnath Chatterjee to name just a few. Yet, his hi-profile clientele does not mean an increase in fees. Sharing Kiran Bedis case Dharminder recollects, When she became the first lady police officer, the shoes given to her along with uniform caused corns which used to give a lot of pain. After a successful treatment, she was extremely happy. The chiropodist shares the instance of Shabana Azmi, Due to high heels, Shabana ji developed pain which was cured. Likewise, there are several incidents that this humble professional remembers.

Chiropodist who showed female assistant porn and massaged patient’s thighs is struck off

Misconduct: Wisson made the suggestive comments and showed pornography to a female assistant on his first day of work at The Verwood Surgery, in Verwood, Dorset

Clueing competition Thanks for your clues for SHOO . Lovely letters, as exploited by jonemm in “Pest removal is oh so difficult” and phitonelly’s “Drive away after photo session finishes early” and a promising sound too, as in LowfieldsRoad’s “Order out pastry over the phone?”. The audacity award goes to Tedgar for “‘Get lost, Sue,’ says Connery” and likewise cinematic was morphiamonet’s ingenious “Sam Peckinpah’s first and last Oscars for The Getaway”. The runners-up are the plausible surface readings of MaleficOpus’s “Get lost somewhere in London, throwing up insides” and steveran’s “Get gasps of admiration riding backwards on your bike”; the winner is Journeyman7’s magnificently terse “Silence rings out”. Kudos to Journeyman please leave this fortnight’s entries and your pick of the broadsheet cryptics below. Cross words about crosswords The twitchforks were out yesterday regarding an apparent typo in the Observer’s Everyman puzzle . The same paper’s Victoria Coren Mitchell led the charge : OMG, it IS a spelling mistake! In an anagram clue! That’s awfully depressing. “Leaders, real idiots, in dissaray (10).” Victoria Coren M. (@VictoriaCoren) January 19, 2014 I have recently joined Victoria’s crew at quiz show Only Connect as question editor, with the result that I have now been challenged to express my feelings on the matter . This blog’s policy of not commenting on prize puzzles for which the solution has not yet been published prevents me from saying too much, but: I cannot find “dissarray” as a variant spelling of “disarray”, even in the really big dictionaries; a typo in anagram fodder the letters the solver needs to jumble to find the answer is worse than a typo in the word indicating the anagram; but no typo is ever welcome; and especially not in puzzles that are beginner-friendly; but I would still recommend the Everyman to cryptic newcomers. I am, moreover, happy to be quoted on all of the above at the inquest.

Maesteg chiropodist denied permission to open specialised shoe stall in market

Or contact us by email or phone . Search: Chiropodist urges council to save trees if school gets nod 12:48pm Tuesday 23rd April 2013 in News CONCERN Trees outside the old Clarence Street YMCA BLACKBURN chiropodist Christopher Hunt has called on the borough council to protect the avenue of trees lining Clarence Street if it approves the bid to build the new Tauheedul Islam Boys School on the site of the former YMCA building at Edinburgh House. He had written to councillors supporting the application for the new educational institution. Mr Hunt, whose runs a chiropodists and podiatrists in Wellington Street, said the empty YMCA building is an eyesore in its present state but is concerned that the trees lining Clarence Street are left intact as they are historic and on a preservation order. His letter was considered by Blackburn with Darwen council planning committee as it noted a petition signed by 499 supporters of the school proposal last week. It follows the councillors receiving four similar documents, with 88 signatures, opposing the scheme. Tauheedul wants to open the new school in September next year. Plans for purpose-built premises were submitted in February. If approved later this year, they will allow the demolition of the former YMCA building so work can start on the new education complex.

Chiropodist experience shows the way to a professional ‘nothing’ service


Related articles Keeping pace with medical advances 28 August 2006 Having for a number of months self-treated unsuccessfully what I thought was a verruca, I decided it was time to get some professional advice. The chiropodist did a fact-find on me my medical background, did the verruca hurt or cause me any problems? before carrying out a thorough examination of my feet (even the one without said complaint). He confirmed it was a verruca and explained how notoriously difficult verrucas are to treat, adding that, depending on ones age, they can take literally years to eradicate. But, he said, a lot of people do not get anywhere with the treatments available at the local pharmacy. In fact, acid was the best treatment but he was not going to prescribe that for me. I was reassured, better informed and came away confident that do nothing was a reasonable course of action. I had taken advice from a professional who knew what he was talking about and he had not tried to sell me anything. His advice was simply do nothing. Did he bill me? Yes, of course. He is a professional and he delivered a professional service. So in answer to Nicks question: yes, of course you can charge a client when your advice is do nothing as long as doing nothing is good advice based on your experience, skills, qualifications and expertise. Why? Because that advice is valuable and worth something to your client. Product is not the only outcome of advice; advice is valuable on its own.
