David Tollafield qualified from University College Hospital (London Foot Hospital) in 1978 studying originally as a chiropodist. Upon qualifying he entered into the new training programme called ‘podiatry’ and with his skills decided to become a podiatrist specialising in advanced work based on the American model.

In 1980 he took his primary fellowship examination (now called Part 1). He won the Jubilee Award and Winston Churchill fellowship in 1981 and studied biomechanics in San Francisco and later Philadelphia.

He completed his final fellowship examination (FCPodS) to become a full fellow in podiatric surgery and embarked on setting up a surgical programme within the school clinic based at Northampton General Hospital. He set up a joint course in podiatric and orthopaedic surgery using his knowledge of biomechanics and orthotics for final year students and examined with a local consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr David Bromage.

He went on to set up a NHS health service at the Manor Hospital, Walsall, at Dudley’s Corbett Hospital and Sandwell’s city hospital. He additionally set up a private practise in Halesowen (West Midlands Hospital) and the current Spire Little Aston Hospital in Sutton Coldfield

In 2013 Mr Tollafield retired from The Manor Hospital, Walsall after 20 years as their consultant in podiatric surgery, and decided to consolidate his practice as an independent podiatric surgeon at Spire Little Aston. He works closely with many medical colleagues and orthopaedic surgeons at Spire where he feels an integrated service is more equitable for NHS and insured patients as well as those wishing to pay for their own treatment.
