• diabetic foot problems, including infection and ulceration
  • foot problems related to arthritis
  • ingrown toenails (nail surgery)
  • mechanical foot and lower limb problems that need treatment with insoles
  • poor circulation
  • skin and nail conditions

At your first appointment we’ll discuss your medical history and any concerns you have. We’ll examine your feet and if needed, we’ll also carry out some basic tests.

Once we’ve assessed your needs, we’ll chat through your treatment options and decide on the best course of action. For minor problems you may not need treatment and we’ll give you advice on how to manage your symptoms at home.

Some conditions can be treated at your 1st appointment and you’ll be discharged from the service straight away. For more complex conditions, you may need a course of treatment, in which case we’ll arrange further appointments with you as needed.

If you’re unable to leave your home due to your health, we may be able to treat you at home.
