Ronke

Hi, I’m Ronke, I’ve been looking after feet in Berkshire for over 20 years, both in the NHS and independent practice. I set up the practice in 2018 to help people like you with their foot problems. 

I started my career working as part of the Podiatry team in a multidisciplinary setting at the Podiatry Department Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, where I developed a passion and keen interest in the Diabetic foot, working on the hospital wards and carrying out multidisciplinary clinics alongside consultants from the Diabetes centre.

What gives me job satisfaction is being part of the transformational foot care journey of improving your foot health. Podiatry is a specialist branch of healthcare dealing with a multitude of issues in the foot and lower limb.

Over the years, I’ve developed close links with other health professionals from a multidisciplinary perspective, treating the patient as a whole.  As part of our holistic approach to treatment, we may refer-on or point you in the direction of an appropriate health professional or service, to get the best care and input for further management if, and where required.


Specialist Interests: Nail surgery, Musculoskeletal & Sports injuries in the lower limb, Biomechanics, Gait analysis, Dermatology in the lower limb and The Diabetic Foot

Alice

I joined The Vale Clinic team in February 2021 bringing 15 years’ experience in customer facing roles, including a five-star hotel and a leading Australian investment bank. I spent 5 years living in Sydney, Australia working as an Executive Assistant. 

 

Thankful of the experience of living abroad, I returned to the UK to pursue my career. After taking some time off in 2022 to have a baby, I’m back in a new position of Practice Manager and looking forward to growing further with the clinic.

 

When I’m not working, I’m found enjoying time with my family, friends, and our lively black Labrador.

I’m a keen hockey player, representing Windsor Ladies Hockey Club.

Hello, I’m Hannah, I joined The Vale Clinic as a receptionist after many years working in retail as a customer service assistant. I have spent most of my career in customer facing roles, and have been told I have a warm and welcoming sense of humour.

 

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, adventuring with friends and keeping myself entertained with various crafts.

 

I love interacting with people and aim to help everyone feel at ease and satisfied when they visit the clinic.
