It is Foot Health Week 12-18 April 2021 

Are we open?  YES WE ARE! 

Whilst the last 12 months have been difficult for everyone we would like to reassure you that we are still offering expert podiatry care for our patients, albeit in a slightly different way. 

We are aware that some of you are still nervous about seeking help with your healthcare needs. The College of Podiatry has produced this really useful self-care guide that you can download. This will assist you with looking after your own foot health and also includes information about when you should book an appointment with a podiatrist. 

When should you look for professional assistance? 

You should make an appointment to see a podiatrist if: 

You want to prevent foot problems

Regular foot health check-ups with a podiatrist can help to keep your feet healthy. 

Your feet are painful or hurt 

At your first appointment the podiatrist will do a full assessment and  make recommendations for the right therapy.

 A foot problem is getting worse

You are experiencing a foot or ankle problem that has shown no signs of improvement for 3 weeks 

Underlying health conditions 

If you have underlying health problems such as diabetes, poor circulation and neuropathy (loss of feeling). You should seek advice from your podiatrist if you have any new wounds or notice a change in colour or sensation. These conditions can lead to serious foot problems. 

If you are affected by anything in this article please contact us and we will book an appointment with one of our podiatry team. 

We provide a wide range of foot care therapies for conditions including :-
