ABOUT THE VALE CLINIC

Hi, I'm Ronke Tinker

Ronke Tinker

I’ve been looking after feet in Berkshire for over 18 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 believe that our foot health is an essential part of our well-being, and this is one of the reasons I am enthusiastic about keeping the people in my local community walking, and free of pain.  At the clinic, we treat people ranging from the very young to the elderly.
 

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.
 

Our primary aim as Podiatrists, is to improve the mobility, independence and quality of life for our patients. Imagine how amazing that feels!

Meet the rest of the team!

Ronke Tinker Director & Principal Podiatrist

Ronke

I graduated from the University of Salford, Greater Manchester in 2003, with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Podiatric Medicine, and started my career in the NHS.

I worked 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, carrying out multidisciplinary clinics alongside consultants from the Diabetes centre; and also worked on the hospital wards.   

I sought further challenges working in the Reading community in the local NHS podiatry clinics, GP practices and at Prospect Park Hospital bringing my much-valued knowledge, skills and expertise to the community team. 

I was promoted to Podiatry team leader at King Edward V11 and St Marks Hospitals in East Berkshire in 2016, managing the Podiatry team, an experience I thoroughly enjoyed. 

During my time in the NHS, one of the many achievements I am proud of, was leading and developing the Nail surgery care pathway in the Podiatry service Berkshire-wide.

I moved into full-time private practice in 2018, working within a multidisciplinary clinic in Reading to further develop my career in the private sector. 

My areas of interest are nail surgery, the diabetic foot, wound care, biomechanics and verrucae treatments. 

I am a mother to two lovely girls.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, travelling and retail therapy, lots of it!
