What is Health2Home™?
Health2Home™ is a personal on-line service, developed by clinicians, packed full of health information and recommended products to treat many common conditions. The aim is for you to take control of your condition, focus on your health, know what good looks like, obtain the right advice and implement clinician recommended treatments that will support you to reach your aim. For some this will mean full recovery, for others this will mean that you have your condition under your control and not the other way around.
Its origins were based on clinicians wanting to ensure that when their patients were recommended a specific product for thier condition, that they did indeed purchase the correct item. The healthcare world can be confusing. Too many times patients end up purchasing the wrong item which then causes further problems - this is not a healthy option. Perhaps the pink version looks more cool than the recommended blue one but there will be a reason why the blue one is necessary, so we do advise you stick to the items you have been recommended. If you need further advice do re-contact your clinician.
We will be continually adding new products to this site and new advice sheets so keep checking back!
We also want to let you know that by choosing to purchase items on this web site you are supporting your local NHS. Any profits made from this web site are passed back to South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust by its wholly owned Social Enterprise company, SWFT Clinical Services Ltd, who operates this web site.
Meet the podiatry team
The role of a podiatrist is to assess, diagnose and treat foot and lower limb disorders in patients that maybe at risk from infection, ulceration or amputation due to an underlying medical condition.
Our dedicated and experienced team of Podiatrists at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) have all completed three years training at University and are registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC). Each of our podiatrists carries MChS after their name which means that they are a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
A question often asked is what is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist? This is a common misconception, as there is actually no difference between the two. In recent years the NHS has chosen to use the term podiatrist over chiropodist.
The role of an Occupational Therapist is to enable people to achieve their optimum potential in everyday functional activities.
Occupational Therapy is the meaningful use of activities, occupations, skills and life roles, which enables people to function purposefully in their daily life. Participation in meaningful occupation allows individuals and communities to contribute to their own health and well-being. Our Occupational Therapists support people to better manage their condition and or illness, recognising the vital contribution made by families and carers.
All of our Occupational Therapists have completed a degree course at University and are registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC), they are also all members of the British Association of Occupational Therapists.
