Podiatry Research and Development projects
The Podiatry Department at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is involved in undertaking a range of research projects. The aim of this research is to improve the care and services we provide to our patients.
If you are interested in taking part in research we can contact you with more information. Please contact the podiatry service on 02920 335135 or email Podcav@wales.nhs.uk.
However, if you decide not to take part then your decision will not affect the standard of care you receive from the Podiatry Team.
