The Lakeside Foot & Ankle Clinic was founded in 2013 by the very highly qualified and experienced Gill Watterson.
Gill qualified from Queen’s University Belfast, after which she worked in private practice in Belfast. She then studied for post-graduate qualifications in Edinburgh, followed by 7 years of treating the cosmopolitan feet of the well-heeled in London.
Gill has now brought her experience and talent to Dunfanaghy where her routine work involves nail care (ingrown and/or thickened nails), callus and corns.
Gill also has a keen interest in biomechanics. This is looking at how the foot and lower limb function. If pain develops in the foot, knee, hip or even lower back, Gill has the ability to recognise, diagnose and treat biomechanical problems. These can often be a result of sporting injuries - running, cycling or even increasing the length of a daily walk.
Gill can also offer diabetic foot assessment and home visits to those who are house bound. She is a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, and is regulated by the HCPC.
