Health First Staff

Jonathan Small

Lead Podiatrist

Feet have been my life for well over 30 years. In that time I have been an NHS Diabetic Foot Specialist, a Gait & Movement Analyst, a Consultant Podiatrist, and a private clinic owner, helping tens of thousands of people to get better to maintain their stability, mobility, activity, and quality of life. My aim has always been to cure family foot-related problems where possible to help avoid the need for ongoing costly care.

The day-to-day running of the practice falls to Kate who joined the team at Health First in 2015 from the travel industry, following in her late mother's footsteps who worked for us before her retirement a few years previously. Read more about our super-receptionist here.

Joanne (aka Joe) joined us in 2018 with a background in the legal profession. She was training to be a Foot Health Practitioner but unfortunately relocated in 2021. However she still continues to work remotely for us as our super-supporter. Her story is here.

Diane works in the background producing such things as our newsletters, and occasionally covers reception when necessary.

Together the team are here to help you, with a smile on their faces and a desire to resolve any problems you have.
