As we grow older, something as simple as cutting our own toenails can become much harder, or even impossible.
When this occurs, our professional Toenail Cutting Service can help. Our fully trained team can offer you the chance to have your toenails cut to help you:
- remain mobile
- avoid becoming isolated and housebound
- reduce the likelihood of having a fall
- avoid the general discomfort which accompanies long toenails.
Our toenail cutting service is currently being held at the following clinics:
- Ventnor - The Grove House Surgery
- St Helens - St Helens Medical Centre
- Freshwater - Brookside Health Centre
- Ryde - Tower House Surgery, Rink Road
- Newport - Dower House Surgery, Pyle Street
- Newport - Medina Healthcare, West Street NEW CLINIC
- East Cowes - East Cowes Medical Centre
- Cowes - Cowes Medical Centre
- Sandown - Sandown Health Centre, Broadway
- Wootton - Medina Healthcare, Wootton Bridge NEW CLINIC
Our service has more benefits:
