Diabetic & High Risk Foot Care

Diabetes leads to development of high levels of glucose in the body making feet prone to high risk. Diabetic patients should have their feet checked by a health care professional on an annual basis.

We treat a large number of individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes.

Nail Surgery

Most nail problems can be treated conservatively; however an ingrown toenail is a painful condition where in some cases it grows in to the skin causing excruciating pain. Leading cause of ingrown toenail is improper footwear, badly cut toe nails. We have a proven track record of successful outcomes in our nail surgery.

Fungal Infection

Fungal nail infections can affect any affect, any part of your nail, including nail plate, bed and root. Most cases occur in a toe nail causing discolouration, odour, and sometime pain.

Contact us if you have a fungal nail infection, our treatment includes cutting and burring the nail and treatment with anti-fungal medication.

What causes foot pain?

Many Foot and Ankle problems are stress injuries, caused by inappropriate footwear and poor gait while walking or running. These injuries can be treated by podiatry, using a combination of Orthotics, appropriate footwear and activity modification.

How often will I need to see the podiatrist?

After your first appointment the Podiatrist will discuss your diagnosis and proposed treatment plan with you and how often you need to have your feet checked. Often with ongoing conditions such as diabetes you may need to have your feet treated every 4 weeks; most general conditions subsequent visits are scheduled at 8-12 weeks.

Do you have a cancellation charge?

We request a 24-hour notification to cancel an appointment. Our standard charge
for a late cancellation or no show is at £20 for a 30-minute appointment.

What happens at my first visit?

On your first visit we will take a full medical history and assess your condition before your treatment. If you are taking long-term medication, please bring your prescription as it will aid in a sound diagnosis and effective treatment for your conditions.

Are you registered, regulated and monitored by a UK body?

Yes, we are fully qualified, professionally trained and registers, regulated and monitored by the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). More information can be found here http://hcpc-uk.org/.

Do I need to be referred by my doctor?

GP’s refer clients to us directly, most clients come directly to us via friends or family recommendation. Podiatry should be your first port of call if you have ongoing foot problems and you do not need a GP referral.

Can I claim through my medical insurance?

Most medical health insurance companies provide cover for chiropody and podiatry. Most clients visit us directly, although some insurance policies require your GP to authorise treatment so please check with your insurance provider.

You will require a receipt after each appointment, so that you can claim the amount back from your insurance company.
