Fleur Farrington-Reception/Clinic Manager

Without doubt, the heart and sole of both the Podiatry and Physiotherapy clinics.
Fleur has a genuine passion for helping others and her “whatever it takes” attitude helps clients ensure they receive the type of care they are after.
She has a long background in Nursing working with high risk clients, the elderly and children. When she isn’t caring for our clients, she can be found running around after her 4 boys or volunteering her time for their chosen sporting teams. Be sure to ask Fleur to sing a song upon arrival for your Podiatry or Physiotherapy appointment!
