Our Services

As qualified & HCPC registered Podiatrists, there is a huge range of podiatry services we can provide for you. This page only covers a broad overview of them, so if the foot problem you are suffering with is not mentioned, do contact us to discuss how we will probably be able to help you.


Routine Chiropody

Sometimes, even the simple task of cutting your toenails can be too much, we understand that. As we get older, it seems that our legs get longer; our arms shorter and our eyes don’t seem to focus properly.

During your routine Chiropody appointment, which lasts for about half an hour, we will cut and file your toenails and remove any hard skin or corns that we find.

Some patients like to have regular treatments every 6 to 8 weeks; some people come to have their ‘holiday feet’ so they look good whilst lying on the sun bed.

Functional Assessments and Insoles

How humans have walked has evolved over the millennia, but unfortunately, things can and do go wrong and we, as humans, are by no means perfect.

Sometimes, simple stretching exercises are enough to sort out the pain that you are experiencing. Sometimes, the prescription of insoles is needed. However before we prescribe you insoles, we undertake a full functional assessment and watch the way you walk and do a small joint assessment. This can take up to an hour. You will need to wear shorts during the assessment so that we can look at your ankles, knees, hips and back.

Diabetic Foot Assessments

Diabetes is a chronic long term condition that is sadly on the increase. One of the effects of Diabetes is reduced sensation in your feet. Once you have been diagnosed with Diabetes, we will undertake a full circulation and sensory assessment on your feet and carry out checkups on an annual basis.

A copy of the findings is automatically sent to your GP. This assessment enables us to monitor whether there have been any changes in the sensation and circulation of your feet.

Ingrowing toe nails

The pain caused by an ingrowing toenail can be excruciating and can make a grown man cry!

No matter what the cause, we can sort it out for you.

Primarily, we will always try to remove the ingrowing toenail in one treatment.

Sometimes, this is not possible and the offending nail, either part or all, has to be removed under Local Anaesthetic.

We will discuss all the options available to you before any treatment commences.

Healing of the operation site is individual to the patient, but on average, patients are fully healed within 4-6 weeks.

We will need to see you on a weekly basis until we are happy to discharge you from our care.

Home Visits/Hospital Visits

Although we are primarily clinic based, we do offer elderly or infirm patients the option of having their treatment in the comfort of their own home. We offer home visits to suit your needs, where possible, however, there are some treatments such as nail surgery that must be done in the clinic, but this would be discussed with you during your home visit appointment.

Home visit appointments are charged at a higher rate than clinic based appointments due to the increased time it takes to travel to and from your home. We always clean up after ourselves and ask you to dispose of the waste at the end of your treatment to avoid cross contamination.

Unfortunately, sometimes our patients have to go into hospital or into a home for respite or permanently. We will gladly go and see patients either in hospital or in the home. We only ask that you tell either the hospital staff or the home of the date and time that we will be going.


Verrutop is a topical solution used by Podiatrists for the treatment of warts and verruca. It uses a Nitrizinc complex to mummify the tissue and aid cell renewal beneath the verruca or wart. This leads to a reduction in size and usually complete removal of the verruca.

80% proven efficacy of the treatment, used on adults and children over the age of 6 years.

How it works:

The overlying area is debrided back by the Podiatrist. This aids absorption of the Nirtizinc Complex into the skin. The verrutop is then applied to the affected area or areas via a small capillary tube. The surface of the verruca is covered in the solution and this may lead to colour changes appearing white or yellow. The application is applied once every 14 days for a maximum of 6 treatments, although 80% of patients see clearance within 4 treatments.

In between scheduled Podiatry appointments the patient MUST apply surgical spirit daily to the affected areas, this is supplied by us.

The verruca will undergo a series of colour changes throughout the treatment before automatically detaching from the affected area.

Other Health Care Professions

As Podiatrists, sometimes, we need to involve other Health Care Professionals, for example, your GP or a Physiotherapist, in managing your foot pain. We have built up over the years good working relationships with other professions. If we feel that you need input or advice from another Health Care Professional, we will discuss it with you and refer you on.

Because we know first appointments can be a little bit daunting for new patients, there is a page on the website all about what to expect.
