You may want us to visit you for treatment if you have painful feet, thickened or discoloured toenails, verruca, fungal, ingrown nails or any other foot-related problem. We will happily speak to you via phone or email if you are unsure about your particular issue.
We can assess foot pain caused by functional or structural foot problems to supply orthoses and insoles. These can provide padding and arch supports to relieve arch or heel pain.
Orthoses are put into your shoe to realign your foot, take pressure off vulnerable areas of your foot, or simply make your shoes more comfortable.
Depending on the condition, orthoses can be off the shelf, fully bespoke, (made from an impression taken of your feet), or semi bespoke, (where off the shelf orthoses are modified to the required prescription). All bespoke orthoses are premium and professionally manufactured in a laboratory.
We can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and how to home treat some medical foot problems.

Podiatrists are highly qualified medical professionals who have been trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
We can prevent and help correct deformity, keep people on their feet and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
All Podiatrists have completed a minimum honours degree in Podiatric Medicine. This requires a minimum of one thousand hours of clinical practise during training.
Podiatrists study anatomy, medicine, biomechanics, physiology and are certified to administer local anesthetics and supply prescription only medicines related to foot conditions.
Many Podiatrists continue to study and extend the range of clinical skills and treatments that they can provide, becoming highly specialised medical professionals.
All Podiatrists are regulated through the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). Our Podiatrists are fully insured through The College of Podiatry.
There is no difference between a Podiatrist and Chiropodist. Although the name Chiropodist is no longer used officially, some people still use use it. The name Podiatrist is used to reflect to the wider scope of expertise and treatments now available.
During our first visit to you, we will take a full medical and drug history and carry out basic tests, such as checking the blood circulation and feeling in your feet.
We may also look at the way you walk and examine your feet, toes and lower leg joints depending on your particular complaint.
We will discuss your concerns with you and then make a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Any minor problems that are picked up can usually be treated on the spot, including the removal of hard skin, corns and calluses and is included in the standard call out charge. The session is usually completely painless and takes 30 to 60 minutes.
Where possible you should be in a chair (or bed) where you feel most comfortable and where there is enough light and space for a Podiatrist to treat you. You will be surprised how much we bring! Pets and children will need to be somewhere safe as we use sharp instruments such as scalpels.
If the Podiatrist feels the space is inappropriate or unsafe, you may be asked to change setting or room. In the interests of your safety, we reserve the right to refuse treatment on these grounds.
The services we provide do not include pedicure or aesthetic treatment for the feet of the type usually provided by nail and beauty salons.
Giving you a high quality of presentation and ongoing ease of management of your feet, nails and skin is a big part of the treatment provided. However, should you require additional cosmetic treatment, we can refer you to the relevant professionals.
Feet will be cleaned if required for medical and hygiene purposes, particularly for those who struggle.
