It is useful for all patients attending ACT Podiatry to fill out the ‘New Patient Form’. This however is not critical as it can also be done on the day of your consultation. It simply saves you time on the day and you are able to see what we consider as important in your management.

The Foot Health Status Questionnaire (FHSQ) is a fully validated and reliable measurement tool, which can be used to measure quality of life outcomes for patients with foot and ankle disorders. In short it is an accurate method of determining a change in your foot health following a treatment, whether this be a non-surgical or surgical option. The FHSQ has four domains, which are used to assess a person’s perception of their level of pain, functional capacity, the general health of their foot (or feet), and whether they experience any limitations on their choice of footwear.

People with significant foot pain are encouraged to fill out a FHSQ prior to their initial consultation or prior to a specific treatment (ie-surgery) so their progress can be followed.
