Man getting his nails cut

 

What does the service offer?

We provide a basic toenail cutting and filing service for the over-50s, who have difficulty cutting their own toenails, owing to frailty or a disability of some sort. Please note that this is not a chiropody service.

Our footcare service is delivered by volunteers who have received training in basic footcare and toenail cutting from a registered chiropodist. Please note that this scheme is not suitable for those requiring more complex foot treatment or people with certain medical conditions.

Who is it for?

The service is for anyone aged 50 and over. We hold regular clinics in Fownhope, Leominster, Weobley and at locations across the City of Hereford. We also hope to reopen our Kington, Ledbury and Bromyard clinics soon.

How much does it cost?

A footcare appointment costs £12. There is an initial additional charge of £15 for a footcare kit, which is then used for the same client at each subsequent appointment.

How do I book an appointment?

To apply for this service, please call us on 0333 0066 299 or email contact@ageukhl.org. We will need to send you two forms - one for you to complete yourself, and one for your GP surgery to complete. Once we get receive the completed forms, we can make your first appointment at the most convenient clinic.
