I qualified in 1985 at Huddersfield University. My first post was for Barking, Havering and Brentwood NHS followed by Southend NHS.

At this point I started in private practice whilst bringing up my 2 children. Private practice became a full time occupation when my husband joined me and we built New Century Clinic.

I especially enjoy the general running and organising of the clinics and nail surgery.

My first career was in engineering however wanting a better quality of home life I decided to retrain and become a Podiatrist. I graduated from The London Foot Hospital, part of UCL, in 1998. From there I went straight into private practice utilising my engineering skills in the field of biomechanics. I manufacture orthotics and this has enabled me to gain consultant referrals.

Originally from Spain, I trained as a nurse and continued to follow this career after moving to England. I decided on a career change to podiatry and qualified in 2003 at the University of London. At present I work in both the NHS and private sector, dealing with high risk patients. I am involved in clinic based work, hospital visits and treating the house bound.

I graduated from the University of Brighton with a 1st class honours degree having always known I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare.
My special interests lie with sports injuries and bio-mechanics due to my background in sport. I play football for my local town and am a keen golfer. I have spent time studying pressure analysis of the feet as the golfer swings.
In 2015 I formed part of the medical team for the London and Brighton Marathon. This involved caring for the feet after the gruelling distance, assessing and treating runners.While maintaining this core interest, I enjoy providing general podiatric care, which includes toe nail reconstruction and nail surgery.

I graduated with a BSc Honours degree in Podiatry from the University of Brighton in 2021.

From early teens I knew I wanted a career in the healthcare sector where I could participate in the improvement of individuals health and well-being. 

I have been fortunate enough to start work in the private sector and I enjoy developing and furthering my knowledge of general podiatric skills.

I have taken on the responsibility of clinics, home visits, hospital and care homes. 

I have a keen interest in biomechanics as I feel many podiatric pathologies are a result of biomechanical issues.

Works at New Century Clinic and Lampits Hill Clinic and carries out home visits.

Mrs Tanya Archer (Podiatry Assistant)

My training has involved practical work and theory. Subjects studied include anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, microbiology, histology, dermatology, medicine and nail pathologies. As a podiatry assistant I am able to treat ‘at risk’ patients which include diabetics and patients on warfarin.

I work with a podiatrist so I am able to refer on should the patient present with a problem outside of my scope of practice.
