What is the difference between Chiropody and Podiatry?
Your First Appointment
During your first consultation, your podiatrist will take a full medical history as well as carrying out basic tests. Any concerns can be discussed at this point and if appropriate, minor issues can be identified and treated in the consultation. Further sessions may be necessary, in which case a treatment plan, specifically tailored to your needs can be discussed.
Depending on the problem and the treatment offered, you may be given advice on self-care, regular podiatry follow-up consultations or referral for further treatment with other practitioners.
30 minute appointments - Available for New Patients or Follow Ups
Our most popular option. Good if you need nail care and callus/corn removal, or if your nails are thickened/fungal and require more time. Also recommended for ingrown toenail care.
45 minute appointments - Available for New Patients or Follow Ups
Good if there are multiple issues present, for example very long nails and areas of hard skin or multiple deep corns present. Highly recommended if you require significant callus debridement (removal).
60 minute appointments - Available for New Patients or Follow Ups
If your feet seriously require some work then this is the option for you! Perfect for neglected feet which need some major attention such as very long onychogryphotic ('horned) nails and very thick areas of hard skin.
15 minute appointments - Follow Up Appointments Only
Good for basic nail cuts with no major nail issues, a single uninfected corn or an area of hard skin.
If you have not been to see us in over 4 months or your nails have gotten very long/thick then please consider booking in for a 30 minute appointment instead.
Wound dressings/checks - Follow Up Appointments Only
Occasionally the podiatrist may need to see you to check the progress of a wound, such as an ulcer or a bad ingrown toenail. If wound care, such as irrigation (cleaning) and redressing is required then there is a £15 additional charge.
If you suspect you have an ulcer or something embedded in your foot please inform the receptionist and book a longer appointment than you usually require.
