My name is Samantha Greenwood and I am the sole Chiropodist/Podiatrist at Healthways.  I qualified in 1995 as a HCPC registered Chiropodist/Podiatrist from Nene College Northampton.  My first job was working for Norfolk and Norwich NHS Trust as a senior Podiatrist.  In my time there I specialised in working with people with Diabetes and wound care, and worked alongside Endocrinologists and Diabetes specialist nurses.

In 2004, I decided to move back to Lancashire to be near my family, and with my skills as a diabetes specialist I gained work in Ashton, leigh and Wigan NHS Trust where I worked for 18 months.

From there I decided to work in the Private sector and worked as an associate in 4 different practices (Nelson, Bolton, Standish and Rawtenstall).  Whilst working as an associate, I was able to utilise and develop my skills as a Chiropodist/Podiatrist.  Continuing my professional development I developed my skills in Biomechanics and carried out a course so that I am now able to administer acupuncture in the lower limb for the use in pain, for example from arthritis, sports injuries, nerve pain etc.

In September 2012 I was given the opportunity to purchase Healthways, after working there as an associate, where I now work full time.
