Laura Willams - Podiatrist / Chiropodist

Laura  / Podiatrist

Laura graduated three years ago from Brighton University, has worked in different clinics and also has been a domiciliary podiatrist (travelling to nursing homes and specialises in dementia care and diabetes). Since university Laura has developed a passion for patient education particularly when treating patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes.  So much so this has inspired Lauras interest in diabetic education to the point of writing 4 childrens’ books on both type I & type II diabetes and the complications that can go with it. Her previous career included being a beauty therapist on some of the the world’s most prestigious cruise lines.  Throughout that time, she developed extensive customer care skills with a wide range of clients.  Laura is also looking forward to starting a Masters degree in international health promotion at Brighton University to take her patient education to a new level.

Lauras skill sets include:

 

 

 

  • General foot care (including nails, corn and hard skin)
  • Minor surgery for ingrown toenails and stubborn verrucae
  • Musculoskeletal and biomechanical problems, including heel and achilles tendon pain
  • Orthotic prescription
  • Diabetic foot health
  • Paediatric assessment and management

Laura enjoys volunteering for a charity called T1 International.  This is a charity that helps provide insulin to patients with type 1 diabetes, in countries that are not lucky enough to have the NHS and where insulin is extremely expensive or difficult to access. She also volunteers for Diabetes UK and supporting a homeless service for foot health / podiatry needs. 

Laura Williams, Author 'Grandpa Diet & Diabetes'

Laura is the author of 'Grandpa Diet and Diabetes' (available at Amazon paperback or kindle). It is the first in a series of three books intended to help children get a grasp on this disease, know how to prevent it, and how to treat it. Nick is just a kid when he notices his rock and roll grandfather is ill.  In a simple, playful language, this series teaches children all they need to know about diabetes and helping people who suffer from the disease. 

Some more info about Laura

Sports: gym and dancing 
Last time I was really scared: zip lining through the rainforest in Costa Rica. I only did it to get over my fear of heights. it didn’t work :(
Strengths: I am enthusiastic, trustworthy, patient and determined. The last point was proved when I got into university. I am dyslexic, and I didn’t learn to read until I was 13. I didn’t get my English GCSE until 2012.  Other than my degree this was one of the biggest achievements of my life. It doesn’t sound much to most people however for a person who spent 3/4 of the time reading the paper when I was 16 and having confidence issues because of this. Achieving this was one of the best moments of my life. 
Weaknesses: I would definitely say I can be critical of myself however I then try and turn this into a positive to say how I can improve.
Most impressive location visited:  this is a very difficult one for me because I have been to so many places. I will say the Celsius library in Ephesus, Turkey so much so I have been 4 times. Although this was incredible, I will also say that Costa Rica was amazing and I would love to go back however this time I would love not to be working.
Final meal: family Sunday lunch or Chinese with friends 
Greatest self accomplishment: as above and being employed by luxury cruise liners. 
Two people round a dinner table:  Brian Cox because he is just amazing and I think Ellie Simmonds because she has such a bright and bubbly personality and is constantly laughing.
Desert Island Discs- which album?  For me I am thinking musicals so a compilation of songs that from West End musicals.
Animal that reflects me: I think I would have to say a service dog. Able to provide comfort and support while helping those in need.
