The Archway Surgery is the family owned and run practice of Mr and Mrs Swan (HCPC*), who have over 60 years combined experience as practicing Podiatrists. Chris and Rose trained at the Leaf Hospital, part of the University of Brighton.
In 1989, shortly after becoming fully qualified, Chris and Rose decided to open their own practice with the aim of bringing a friendly, warm and professional service to St Albans and the surrounding area. Faye Swan, Chris and Rose's daughter, is currently studying at Northampton to become a fully qualified podiatrist.
Both Chris and Rose are members of the Health and Care Professionals Council* (The government regulator for health care professionals) and attend regular courses and seminars to keep their skills and practices current and effective.
