Happy Feet is our not-for-profit toenail cutting service which can be arranged at a local clinic.
What do we do?
We provide basic toenail cutting and filing as well as cutting fingernails. Our staff are trained to a standard set by Southwark Foot Health Services in agreement with Age UK Lewisham and Southwark. They cut your toenails, check your feet for any problems and refer on to NHS services where necessary.
Who is it for?
Our Happy Feet service is for anyone living in Lewisham and Southwark aged 50+.
Please be aware that certain medical conditions and medications may affect your foot health and result in you needing a more specialist foot care service.
If you have diabetes or take blood thinning medication such as warfarin, we will need consent from your GP before we can provide the service.
We are unable to provide the service if you are on steroid medication.
How much does it cost?
Appointments cost £19.50.
At your first appointment, you will be charged for a nail kit which includes a set of nail clippers. Nail kits are £8.
Fingernail cutting is available for an extra £4.50.
You can also buy additional nail files and clippers from your Happy Feet worker at your appointment.
Card payment can be taken over the telephone at the time of booking your appointment. You can also pay by cash or cheque at your appointment. If you are paying by cash, please have the exact money as we are unable to provide change. We are unable to take card payment at the time of your appointment.
