Try our footcare service to help you to stay comfortable on your feet

Man getting his nails cut


Many older people struggle with cutting toe nails and general foot care. If you are not eligible for free footcare provided by the NHS, Sole Mates is an affordable footcare service run by Age UK Merton. A general footcare and nail-cutting service is available Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 5pm at the Cricket Green Medical Practice in Mitcham.

Cricket Green Medical Practice is on the 200 bus route.

We only use fully qualified podiatrists, registered with the Health Professions Council and the service is run in accordance with the Minimum Standards of Clinical Practice.

The service costs £25 for a 30 minute treatment. If you are a new patient, there is a one off registration fee of £10 payable at your first appointment. Payment is made to the podiatrist on the day, so please ensure you bring cash or cheque with you.

We also run a basic toe/ finger nail cutting service at our main office (Elmwood Centre, 277 London Road, Mitcham, CR4 3NT). Click here for more information.

To book, please call the Age UK Merton office on 020 8648 5792 between 9am and 4pm. You can book with any of our reception team.
