About Footcare for Life

Maninder Bharj Payne BSc (Hons) MRCop HCPC Reg

I graduated from the University of Northampton with an upper second class honours degree in Podiatric Medicine. Since qualifying I have worked both privately and in the NHS, in both clinical and domiciliary settings.

A strong relationship between patient and podiatrist is paramount. I spend time developing the necessary treatment plans tailored to each individual and maintain sound links with doctors and health professionals. Creating a friendly and professional environment that is able to offer a variety of podiatric disciplines at a consistently high standard is of utmost importance.

As well as routine podiatry treatments, I am able to undertake Biomechanical Assessments and Gait Analysis to help treat sports injuries and postural abnormalities. Podopeadiatrics, which is the assessment and diagnosis of paediatric foot disorders, is a discipline that I have an interest in.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council and a member of the Society of chiropodist and podiatrists. I maintain my commitment to podiatry by being a member of RCOP by attending various courses and keeping up with the continued professional development as required by the HCPC. I have also undertaken research which has been published in medical journals.

I like to take a holistic approach to work and home life. When outside of work, I enjoy practising yoga which I often use to advise patients on stretching. I enjoy travelling and take an active interest in other cultures and foods. Like every other girl, I enjoy shopping and believe no one can have too many pairs of shoes!

HCPC Number: CH26742

Quality of care: The principal aim is to provide a professional and friendly service catering to all your footcare needs.

What is the difference between a chiropodist and podiatrist?

There is no difference between a chiropodist and podiatrist. The term podiatrist is the internationally recognised word, where as the word chiropodist was primarily used in the UK, however this is now changing. Practitioners who call themselves chiropodists and podiatrists must be registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council.

What can a podiatrist help you with?

Podiatrists can help to reduce pain, aid mobility, help foot function, improve tissue viability and generally make us feel better and more comfortable. A podiatrist can help anyone of any age from small children to the elderly with a range of treatments.

Price List














Routine Podiatry

Routine Podiatry or Chiropody is a term for the general maintenance of foot health. This may include the cutting of toenails, treatment of ingrown and thick nails, callus debridement, corn enucleation, fungal infections, verruca treatment and diabetes and rheumatology foot care, as well as general advice.


Biomechanics is the study of the mechanics of a living body, especially of the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure. Any abnormalities can give rise to pain, sports injuries and poor posture.

I have been a patient of Maninder’s for about two years. I am pleased to testify as to her professional skill. When I first saw her I was almost unable to walk on account of a painful foot condition. Under her continuing care this is now completely under control and painless. Maninder also visited my late wife at home during her terminal illness and gave her great comfort & relief.

Maninder Bharj has been my chiropodist for the past 5 years. I have found her treatment, particularly for my in-growing toe nails to be very effective. I see her on regular visits to my home every 6 weeks. Maninder is highly professional with a pleasing manner and good sense of humour, very caring and punctual.

Mr. Payne


Very pleasant atmosphere Made me feel at ease and the experience was professional and knowledgeable would defiantly recommend Maninder to newcomers to chiropody.



I am so happy with the quality of service i receive from Maninder. She is so accommodating and generally makes home visits at short notice. She is warm and friendly and an excellent chiropodist.

Sue Sheldrake


I recommend a visit to Maninder the foot expert. You will come away with comfy feet and spirits lifted by her friendly manner.

Mark Robinson

I had suffered with what is known as plantar fasciitis in the left heel for a couple of months. This was really painful and was preventing me from walking distances and also from participating in a weekly 10k run.

Maninder diagnosed the problem and had made for me, personal moulded inner soles to fit my normal shoes and if need be my running shoes. Within 10 days of wearing the pain had disappeared and I was able to get back to running in my normal running footwear.

I would have no problem in recommending Maninder for foot injuries or long term problems.
