Jo Lea

Hi, I’m Jo Lea,

I am passionate about restoring comfort to patients who have foot pain and feel a bit anxious about taking off their shoes to show someone else their feet! Having worked for over 10 years in an NHS hospital high risk diabetic foot clinic, you really can’t show me anything that will surprise me.

Jo Lea and familyOver my years in Podiatry, more than 15 in private practice, I have seen an enormous variety of painful foot problems. I particularly enjoy treating verrucae using our new Swift microwave technology, restoring beautiful nails with medical toenail reconstruction for infected or damaged toenails or nail surgery as well as all aspects of routine podiatry and diabetic footcare - so long as you feel nurtured and comfortable at the end of your appointment.

When I’m not working I love to spend time with my family, walking in the local area (especially Richmond Park) with friends and their dogs, sitting around the dining table; eating and chatting with friends and travelling to far flung places to experience different food and cultures.

Hi, I'm Saffron,

I graduated with a degree in Podiatry in 2016. Before joining kingstonfeet in 2020, I worked as a Podiatrist in the private sector for a small clinic and also a large retail chain. I have found all clinics were fun and have their own style and ways of working with patients.

I have a broad interest in Podiatry from routine care (skin and nail conditions), insole therapy, wound care and nail surgery.  Alongside Podiatry I have also studied reflexology, massage and acupuncture - I find all aspects of healthcare really interest me.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching documentaries and films. I spend my free-time learning about all things mind, body and soul with recent interests being meditation, astrology and qigong. On the weekends you can find me spending time in Bushy Park or trying new restaurants - my current favourite being Korean.

Hello there, I’m Jack.

I joined the team as a receptionist in late August 2020 upon finishing my MA in Intellectual History.

Working here has been great fun so far, and it’s refreshing to do something so different to reading all day. I plan to keep working here until summer 2021, when hopefully I’ll have sorted out a PhD.

Other than past experiences of athlete’s foot, I knew rather little about footcare, but it’s surprisingly enjoyable to keep all the admin organised and help book people in – although my perhaps over-formal manner has had the odd caller initially mistake me for the answerphone!

Outside of work, I enjoy playing the piano, especially Katie Melua and Chopin, and strolling or reading by the river. I’m also quite partial to a Greek Salad, my favourite childhood food.

Do give us a call to hear my immaculately casual, with just a hint of surprise: “Oh hi there, this is Jack at kingstonfeet. How can I help?” Try to hear anything of my Australian heritage when you call us.

Practice Manager - not clinical !
Hi - I am Andy Lea,
I am married to Jo, kingstonfeet’s business owner. As Practice Manager, I am delighted to be able to help this growing practice move to the next stage, with a bigger team and (soon in 2021) with a new treatment room.
After 35 years in airline and airport process work I decided to work with Jo on business process improvement and practice management. I am finding healthcare to be similar to airline and airports in that both are in the business of looking after people - consistently and well.
I am more than happy to fix a technical problem or develop a process, make things run more smoothly for our patients and staff, but more than anything I love to talk with people and find out more about what makes them tick. I really appreciate an engaging real-life story, the sillier and more unusual the better !
I ski fast but not very elegantly - I love to travel and find Eastern Europe and Asia fascinating. At the weekends I like to try out new recipes on friends and family - often involving something a little different. I love listening to Joni Mitchell and appreciate a great hifi.

All our podiatrists are Podiatry Degree qualified, HCPC registered and are members of the College of Podiatry.

We have strong working relationships with local NHS and private Podiatric Surgeons, should a surgical opinion be required, as well as potential onward referrals for imaging, blood tests and therapeutic injections.
