We are a professional team of four HCPC Registered Chiropodists/Podiatrists, who are fully qualified and experienced clinicians offering a wide range of treatments for lower limb and foot problems. We maintain our qualifications with regular course updates to ensure that our patients are provided with the best possible care.
High clinical standards are maintained-our instruments are ultrasonically cleaned, washed and sterilised for individual use on each patient.
Home visits are available for people with limited mobility and are unable to attend at the practice. We try to be flexible if required but it is best if you can attend at the practice as the number of people we can see outside of the premises each week is limited as we try to keep appointments for those who really need it.
An initial appointment will last approximately 30 minutes but this may be altered after your initial appointment if a shorter treatment is required. It is not usually painful and many find it quite a relaxing experience.
The clinician will ask you several questions about your health and assess your feet in order to provide a treatment plan which they will discuss with you. If you have any particular concerns, please do not hesitate to raise them.
We also offer a deluxe chiropody treatment which begins with a foot bath; to clean and soak the feet, followed by an assessment and treatment, and short foot massage with the chiropodist.
The Chiropody/Podiatry team have a wealth of experience gained whilst working in both the NHS and private sector.
