Can anyone recommend a podiatrist that is good with kids and listed as a provider with BUPA?

After making an appointment and checking with BUPA they tell my the podiatrist I chose is not listed with them, therefore I am not entitled to claim anything. Further, they cannot give me a list of providers who ARE accredited with them... its up to me to call around, get provider numbers then call BUPA and determine whether they are recognised or not.

This is the first thing I've tried to claim through BUPA in 3 years... WHYYY I have PHI is a mystery grrr but thats a separate thread really, isn't it.

Apols - any reccs appreciated (I think I have to request these via PM?)

Everything that Unique-Gem says. Michelle has a special interest in paediatric podiatry and dancers. My DD has been seeing her since she was 8.

I don't know if she's on the Bupa list, she certainly uses hicaps...maybe give them a call and see.
