Some people find that cutting their own toenails and other aspects of foot care prove to be a challenging task. This can be for a number of reasons including limited vision, unable to hold nail clippers or reach their toes due to arthritis, or sometimes simply not being as supple as they once were. A lack of attention to foot care and foot hygiene can create significant problems including pain, infections, reduced mobility and an increased risk of falls.
What does the service offer?
Our Foot Care service provides nail cutting and offers moisturising of feet if required. We will arrange for you to be seen in one of our venues.
Is there a cost?

- Standard nail cutting - £15
- Finger nail cutting (only with a footcare appointment) - £2.50
