Free podiatry services

We have recently linked up with a podiatrist, Jo. Jo has been a podiatrist for over 20 years and loves meeting people and helping them with their foot issues.

Jo can provide treatment from nail care and calluses to complex needs such as pain, wounds and diabetic care. There will be times where Jo will recommend further treatment and may refer you to see your GP or attend a podiatry clinic as we are limited on what we can provide at the drop-in centre.

As Jo will be providing medical care, a consent form will need to be signed prior to treatment.

Please note that if it is advised that you will need new shoes, go to a clinic or see your GP, it is up to you to follow through with her recommendations, however the health team may be able to help with the payment if your funding allows.


When: Every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Time: 1pm - 3pm

This service is by booking only. Please call Open Place, 1800 779 379 to enquiry.


A little from Jo:

Hi, I’m Jo and I have been a podiatrist for over 20 years. As a podiatrist, I love meeting people and helping them with their foot issues, which can be simply nail trimming or more complex needs such as wounds and diabetic care. Aside from podiatry, I have a wide variety of interests- my garden, footy (Go Cats!!) and looking after my 20-year-old cat! I look forward to spending time at Open Place and meeting you all and helping with your foot needs!
