Why do we do what we do?

Our fundamental purpose is ...

… to resolve pain and improve the quality of life of each and every one of our patients and through growing and developing our business, improve the quality of life of each of our team members.

How do we do it?

We live by the mantra that to be the best we need to do extra!

That’s why every patient who chooses Active Step is treated as a VIP! Each member of our team will pull out all the stops to make your experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We ask all new patients for their feedback too, so that we can identify any areas we can improve on.

We only have passionate people in our team, who are proud of the contribution they make whether it’s providing Podiatry care or supporting our patients in booking their appointments.

We have a culture of continuous learning which enables us to stay at the forefront of modern healthcare techniques and deliver world-class Podiatry care to our patients.

We also use the best technology in modern healthcare to ensure seamless communication with our patients, to facilitate accurate diagnoses and to provide advanced therapies for conditions that have been unresponsive to conventional approaches.
