What does the service offer?

Our nail cutting service is run by trained staff who can help with cutting nails. Please note, this is not a chiropody service.


Who is it for?

Our nail cutting service is for people who are in good health but are unable to undertake this personal hygiene task for themselves. The service is also for when it would not be safe or practical for you to take on this task yourself.

People who wish to use the service will be assessed for their suitability. A member of the nail cutting team will complete an assessment over the phone and allocate a nail cutter to you.

The scheme may not be suitable for everyone.  For example, those who:

  • are Diabetic
  • having Immunosuppressive or Chemotherapeutic agents  
  • nails are too thick to cut with clippers
  • or those who have nail conditions requiring treatment by a qualified healthcare professional

We are now able to provide a service for clients that are on:

  • Steroids
  • Anticoagulants/Blood thinners


How much does it cost?

The current charge for these services are:
£20.00 for a home visit, or £15.00 at one of the clinics.
We can also cut fingernails for £10 – this is an add-on service to either a home or clinic visit.

In addition, new clients must purchase a nail kit for £6. This is a one-off cost and it can be used for a whole year.


How do I access the service?

We run a nail cutting clinic at our Brighton & Hove centre (if you require a home visit please contact us):

Clinics are on an appointment-only basis. Please note that this service does not operate in the evenings or at weekends.
