A FB post by Somuz caught my eye over the weekend. The IOCP are about to offer a Certificate in ultrasound-guided injections. I had no prior knowledge of this when I made my post about diagnostic ultrasound (see above).

So that members are aware – we are streets ahead of any other UK Podiatry professional body in this area.
Question were also asked about availability of dermal fillers, and what we may need or not need in the way of independent prescribing rights. This is NOT my area of expertise. I do know that if a Podiatrist has a local anaesthetics Certificate he/she can already legally obtain a 1% solution of cortisone for administration by injection.

One can see which direction we are heading in. It is a good thing, in my opinion, and it is right that the IOCP are leading the way.
