Happy Feet - Toe Nail Cutting Service

Putting your best foot forward!

 

 

Unkempt nails can contribute to an increase in falls, we offer a basic toenail cutting service in partnership with Aneurin Bevan Health Board Podiatry Service which is safe and accessible to help prevent this. The service is available to those aged 50+, who meet our low level criteria.

Anyone wishing to use the services will be required to obtain written approval via a form we will send you from their GP or another clinically qualified health care professional such as; nurses or members of the podiatry service.

Our foot care assistants have all attended foot care awareness sessions from Aneurin Bevan Health Board Podiatry Service and follow the guidelines of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.

As the service is neither directly provided nor funded by the NHS, it is charged at the following competitive rate £20.50 (first appointment) and £15.50 (reoccurring appointments). The service is available by appointment only at one of our following current venues:

ACG Crumlin office, Crumlin Square, Crumlin

ACG Newport office, Baneswell Road, Newport

Mardy Park Resource Centre, Abergavenny

 

We made 2122 feet happy last year (April 18 – March 19), you only get one pair, so let Choices help you remain comfortable, mobile and independent on your feet!

Any surplus income from Choices is used to support the work of the charity with older people.
