Podiatry & Chiropody - The Marigold Clinic 

Important information

From 3rd April 2018, The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) will no longer be providing NHS-funded homeopathic remedies for any patients as part of their routine care. This is in line with the funding policy of Camden Clinical Commissioning Groups, the local NHS body that plans and pays for healthcare services in this area.

Should you choose you will be able to purchase these medicines from the RLHIM pharmacy, while other homeopathic pharmacies may also be able to supply the medicines. You can speak to your clinician or the RLHIM pharmacy at your next visit about this.

For further information on the Camden CCG policy you can contact their enquiries team via camccg.enquiries@nhs.net or 020 3688 1700.

  • Conventional podiatry management
  • Orthotic therapy
  • Foot care advice
  • Marigold Therapy
  • Homeopathy

Marigold Therapy

Marigold Therapy is the use of specially formulated herbal products, based on plants such as Tagetes (a type of marigold) and others, applied directly to the feet alongside conventional podiatry treatment.

No animals are used in the manufacture or testing of Marigold Therapy preparations.
Dr Khan may recommend Marigold therapy.
This product is made by a family business.

Homeopathy
Homeopathic medicines (taken by mouth) are prescribed where indicated. See our leaflet, “Homeopathy” for details.

Your appointment

If you are unable to attend your appointment please let us know at least 48 hours beforehand so we can offer your appointment to someone else. If you do not attend your appointment without telling us we may refer you back to your GP.
Following your treatment you will be referred back to your GP.

Professional education and training

The RLHIM is also a teaching hospital and from time to time other healthcare professionals may observe in outpatient clinics as part of a training course. We will always ask your permission for students to sit in during your consultation.  You do not have to have students present if you would prefer not to.
