We are now able to offer people aged 60+ in Nottingham a simple nail cutting and basic footcare advice service. People who have a long term health condition, and who do not qualify for NHS podiatry services are able to access this charged for service. Age UK Notts is working in partnership with CityCare to enable us to provide this affordable and accessible footcare service.

The footcare service includes a short soak, nail trim, the filing of hard skin, and the application of cream. Appointments last approximately 30 - 45 minutes, however the first appointment will be slightly longer. We offer follow-up appointments at regular intervals, basic footcare information and advice.
