Patients regularly say, “I only need my nails cut, as I find it difficult to bend down to cut them myself."
We can help but, there is no such thing as a simple nail cut at Podiatry Station! You are seeing a Qualified Foot Specialist who has a duty of care to carry out a full assessment within each appointment. Often this is a visual inspection, but remember our Podiatrists are highly trained and very experienced professionals, who have an eye for underlying issues that you may not even be aware of, and need to know about.
Here at Podiatry Station we start this treatment by asking for your full medical history, which includes any health conditions you have, medication you are taking, and any other ongoing mental or physical problems you may have. As an example, you may be high risk diabetic patient or on Aspirin / Warfarin, then your GP will have advised you not to cut your own toenails. If this is the case, we need to know this before treating you. This is because these medications thin the blood which means that, if you were to injure yourself whilst cutting your nails, you could potentially lose a significant amount of blood.
The nail care we provide includes the toenails being trimmed, filed, and sulci (sides) checked and cleared. The soles of the feet are also checked for any other problems that may need our attention. The treatment is then completed by hydrating the skin with our foot balm.
As nail care is an ongoing requirement and often needs to be done approximately every 6-8 weeks, we offer a reduced price for regular clinic visits. Please view our prices page for more details or call us to find out more.
After having been closed for more than 2-months, we are back and open to treat all patients. Following the advice given by Public Health England, and guidelines issued by The College of Podiatry, we are now able to treat all patients that are deemed to be safe. Health and safety is paramount, so we have introduced extra measures within the clinic to protect everyone. Patients can find out more about the changes being implemented on our website under ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) Clinic Policy & Procedure’.
If you need to see a Podiatrist, please contact us and we will carry out a health check to confirm if we are able to offer you an appointment immediately. In the meantime, we are reviewing the situation on a daily basis, and will release updates on our website, by email and via our social media channels should the guidelines change again.
Appointments will only be offered to patients who we feel are no risk to others!
