Welcome to the BRANNGO Health Working Group page !

BRANNGO Cttee Mbr Lisa Whitehouse-Foskett

As the BRANNGO Health Working Group Lead, I would like to introduce myself.

My name is Lisa Whitehouse-Foskett. Professionally, I am a Director of my Practice and a Podiatrist, specialising in Biomechanics, Gait Analysis, Prescriptive Orthotics, together with Chiropody. I started my business, a Private Clinic, some 23 years ago, after having worked in the NHS in a different capacity.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Podiatric Medicine. I am a member of a number of organisations, including the College of Podiatry and the Royal Society of Medicine. I am also an Honorary Member of the Nepalese Doctors Association (UK).

I have been connected with, and have been working in, Nepal since 2004.

Many thanks to Dr Donna Shrestha and Dr Prajwal Ghimire, Joint Secretaries, Nepalese Doctors Association (UK), for allowing us to share their 2020 Journal (54 pages) with our members. The Journal is extremely well worth reading as it contains many interesting articles and updates.

The Nepalese Doctors Association (UK) is a socio-professional and charitable organisation which ‘promotes and supports medical education and health improvement projects, through independent and collaborative efforts in the UK and Nepal’. If you would like to know more about the Nepalese Doctors Association (UK), or their Charity Wing, please take a look at their excellent website, or get in touch with Lisa.
