About ZW Clinics

ZW Clinics offers the highest quality podiatry and chiropody services. ZW Clinics was founded by Zoe Wilson in 2016.

What is a Podiatrist?

A Podiatrist is a Health Professional specialising in the diagnosis and management of the foot, ankle and associated structures. A Podiatrist may treat anything from an ingrown toenail requiring surgery, prescribing custom made foot orthoses to assist with lower limb malfunction, sports injury management or even become a Podiatric Surgeon. All of our Podiatrists are HCPC Registered and members of the Royal College of Podiatry to ensure our professional standards are superior in all sectors.

How far we’ve come

Zoe Wilson Owner and Founder of ZW Clinics opened her first clinic, Z.W. Foot & Ankle in 2017. Since then, the clinics have gone from strength to strength. Within 6 years we have treated thousands of patients, introduced new technology such as Diagnostic Ultrasound, Injection Therapy, Shockwave Therapy, HOKA Footwear, The Richie Brace and built ZW Clinic 2 in Kirkby Lonsdale focusing on state of the art Gait assessment and treatment.
