Corns, callus, verrucae, ingrowing toe nails, thickened or fungal nails, foot pain, athlete’s foot, diabetic foot problems, bunions, heel pain, chilblains, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis, dry skin, sweaty feet, blisters, gout, biomechanical issues and many more conditions can all be assessed and treated by our Podiatrist gently and professionally.

Contact us today and book an appointment, take the first step towards healthier feet.

The Appointment 

(Prior to the appointment you will have filled in a medical questionnaire to help us understand your health background and any relevant conditions that may impact your foot or ankle health.)

We allow 30 minutes for our podiatry appointments.  Within the appointment your feet will be thoroughly assessed including checks of your circulation and the feeling in your feet.   After examining your feet and ankles, and discussing your specific needs and concerns, we will formulate a treatment plan to get you feeling comfortable and happy with your feet. 

Most appointments involve toenails being trimmed and filed, thickened nails reduced, callus and corn areas comfortably pared away, and the application of a moisturiser, all while imparting plenty of tips and advice you can use yourself to improve your foot health further.  Although some conditions may take longer to resolve, our aim where possible is to give you immediate relief on the day of your appointment.  The appointment is priced at £49.  For those with mobility issues please note appointments are held upstairs, on the first floor, at Ironstone Wellbeing Centre.
