Outlines the development of the profession of podiatry, and its regulatory bodies. Highlights areas of podiatric practice which are currently under scrutiny in terms of the quality of care being delivered to the patient. Considers the position of this profession in relation to the recent changes in health care in the United Kingdom and the possibility of changes in the finding of podiatric education, these changes being a direct result of the 1989 NHS Review. Finally, makes certain recommendations designed to inform and assist the profession of podiatry in the development of a cohesive quality assurance strategy, such a strategy being central to the effective delivery of health care in the NHS of the 1990s.
