I had problems with my big toe nail, it was painful and oozed pus. I was advised that the nail needed to be removed as the problem would probably return.
I couldn’t face surgery – it was my dreaded nightmare.
Eventually I decided to go ahead and made the appointment. I was so worried about the whole procedure that when the day came I very nearly cancelled the appointment. When I arrived the receptionist greeted me with a smile, a cup of tea and conversation. The dreaded moment came and I was called in. Everything was explained to me. The injection in my toe that I was worried about caused no more than a little discomfort, the whole procedure was a piece of cake and I wouldn’t hesitate to have it again.
The practice is run by kind, caring people and I can’t recommend highly enough.
Just a note to say thank you for supplying me the new orthotics which immediately provided a noticeable improvement.
Before visiting your clinic I suffered pain in my left knee, requiring a knee support, and some pain in my left ankle, which made it quite difficult to walk any distance.
Since you supplied the new orthotics which has now enabled me to walk comfortably and without a knee support.
I was very impressed with the professionalism and friendly attitude I received from your practice, from the initial consultation through the process of accessing my needs, designing, supplying the orthotics and the follow up appointment.
I just want to express my gratitude and appreciation of the quality of service provided.
After suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for some time I decided I needed to do something about it as the pain was crippling.
I visited the clinic and the Podiatrist Toby, who suggested made-to-measure orthotic insoles, as the problem was so acute and stretching exercises were not helping.
Now the pain has completely gone, no more hobbling about in agony.
Update 6th January 2021 – Lockdown 3.0
On Monday 4th January the Prime Minister announced this that in order to curb the spread of the new mutant COVID-19 virus, England will return to a full lockdown with immediate effect.
However, healthcare is not affected, meaning that podiatrists can continue to work. Podiatrists can continue with home visits and treating patients in nursing homes. Patients can still travel for their healthcare needs.
The safety of our patients is paramount and we would like to reassure you that we are adhering to all government and professional body guidelines in respect of hygiene and PPE.
Please DO NOT ATTEND if you have been in contact with anyone with symptoms or who has tested positive or who is self isolating. You will not be able to attend unless you are wearing a mask.
We will update this information if anything should change.

Where possible, can you make your journey to the practice without using public transport? You will not be allowed to enter the building until your appointment time.
When you attend an appointment you will be required to wear a mask and if you do not have one we can supply one for £1. You will be asked to wash your hands on entering the building and your temperature will be taken and recorded by an infrared reader. You will then be taken into the surgery for your consultation. All practitioners will be wearing plastic aprons, mask and gloves and the surgery will be sanitised before and after each treatment. We regret that at present we would prefer not to take cash in payment.
