Manjeet afoot with expanded services

15 November 2018

New Bayside Health Service Senior Podiatrist Manjeet Sagoo has arrived bringing with him extensive knowledge in high risk foot podiatry.

Manjeet said it was an exciting time for Metro South Podiatry services with additional funding provided for an expansion of the services provided and improvements to client access to high risk foot podiatry services.

Director Podiatry Michael Harris said Manjeet had been instrumental in establishing a podiatry clinic at Wynnum-Manly Community Health Centre and that his skills and experience from working in the National Health Service in the UK and more recently as a member of the Logan Hospital Podiatry Service would benefit the local community.

“This one day per clinic has quickly reached capacity and we are now planning to commence a second clinic day at the new facility,” Manjeet said.

“Feedback from Wynnum-Manly Community Health Centre clients has been very positive and our podiatry clients are enjoying the benefits of the new facility and the option of accessing care closer to home.”

Michael said a change of clinic room and the purchase of a second podiatry chair for the Redland Hospital service had created the capacity for Manjeet and Bayside’s other Senior Podiatrist Brian Dinh, to treat clients side-by-side.

“Manjeet and Brian have also been working with medical and nursing colleagues to establish a weekly multidisciplinary high risk foot clinic.”

Manjeet said this more co-ordinated and integrated approach would help streamline care delivery and support good patient outcomes.
