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.

In 2014, she is running for two charities: The Alzheimers Society for her grandmother, who is suffering from severe vascular dementia, and The Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Charity, in memory of her dads sister who died from leukaemia, aged just four. Hopefully, the funds we can raise together will go towards the continual development, progression, research and care that both charities strive to do and aim to prevent and cure our current and future generations, said Emma. She has the added reassurance of knowing she be in good hands at the end of the race with her dad John, a fellow chiropodist on hand to provide a well-earned massage and TLC for her tired feet. The pair work as a father and daughter partnership, offering chiropody and podiatry services as A1 Footcare, with clinics at Paydens The Chemist in Broadstairs and Dashwood Medical Centre, Ramsgate. In 2012, Emma raised 2,500 for the liver unit at Kings College Hospital, London, where her mum had been treated. Chiropodist Emma Bevan, from Broadstairs, will be running the London Marathon in aid of The Alzheimers Society and The Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Charity. She completed that run in five hours, 34 minutes and 56 seconds, managing to do so running all the way, not walking or stopping once. Emma, a member of Cliftonville Hockey Club, describes the experience as phenomenal, one of the best of my life. She said: It was such a massive achievement, knowing that when you put your mind to it, you can do it. The atmosphere was wonderful with little children screaming your name and high-fiving, steel bands on roundabouts, people singing karaoke. Emma also enjoyed seeing runners in fancy dress and is planning her own – she may well step out as Wonder Woman.
