Our Story

Having worked both within the NHS and the private sector for several years Lynne felt that the time had come to open her own clinic. Utilising the knowledge and experience she gained working for other practitioners, an old plumber’s merchants was converted into a brand-new clinic, and in March 2011 ‘Cambridge Road Chiropody’ was born. Over the following 9 years she built up a busy clinic, adding staff members and more podiatrists as business increased.

In late 2019 it was felt the business had outgrown the premises, and a new property was sought. Due to the success of the clinic over the years, Lynne was able to buy her own premises, relocating her business to a more central location. Rebranding was required and ‘Step First Podiatry’ was created. Lynne now works with a team to podiatrists to help offer a range of services and expertise.
