TREATMENTS AND PRICES
NAIL CARE AND MAINTENANCE
This appointment is for either thickened, fungal or problem nails. We recommend clients attend clinic every 6-8 weeks so that this type of nail can be kept under control. The treatment will conclude with the application of emollient.
Nails will be cut, reduced in thickness if needed and filed. Hard skin and corns will be removed. The treatment will conclude with the application of emollient. The podiatrist will give advice and assess any problems with the aim to reduce further recurrence. Self-care and footwear advice will also be given.

DIABETIC ASSESSMENT/ANNUAL FOOT REVIEW
The podiatrist will provide a diabetic foot assessment to monitor any loss of sensation and the blood circulation in your feet will also be checked. Diabetic clients can have an increased risk of infection and ulceration and the podiatrist will help you to look after your feet to reduce the risk of these problems. Footwear will be checked and assessed. Documentation and a letter with results will be supplied for your GP (with your consent)
CHOICES OF ORTHOTICS RANGE FROM £29.99
INSOLES FROM £10
Specialist insoles can bring comfort and cushioning to your footwear. An orthotic is an in-shoe device which is designed to redistribute the body’s weight across the whole of the sole of the foot and therefore correct irregular walking patterns. The wearing of an orthotic is a commitment in same way glasses are worn to correct vision. They are effective in reducing pain and often reduce the amount of hard skin formation.
NAIL SURGERY (PARTIAL/TOTAL NAIL AVULSION)
Nail surgery is usually performed for ingrown toenails, if conservative measures have not succeeded in resolving this problem. It provides alleviation of pain from an ingrowing or deformed nail, you will feel more comfortable when wearing shoes, it prevents infection associated with ingrowing toenails (no need for antibiotics anymore).
There are alternate treatments to nail surgery which are conservative and available as a regular Nail Care and Maintenance appointment.
Nail surgery cost is from £350 and includes post-operative dressing appointments and the dressing pack.
