The podiatry service is available to people of all ages who have problems with their feet or lower limbs. The service is able to assess, diagnose and manage foot and leg problems to reduce pain, help prevent deterioration of chronic conditions and increase mobility. However, they do not provide a basic nail cutting service.
All referrals are triaged on receipt, as there are access criteria in place for NHS treatment. This service is available to people who have problems such as painful corns and callus, in-growing toe nails, and foot ulcers. However, the service will only treat those patients who have a medical/podiatric problem that puts the foot at risk of deterioration.
