Unfortunately there is now no NHS provision for elderly routine foot care unless there is a medical condition relating to the feet. For many elderly people who might have difficulty reaching their feet, simple nail cutting can present quite a problem. Toenails often thicken with age which adds to the difficulty of self care and in many cases impaired vision further complicates matters.
The Paulton Podiatry Clinic takes the view that it is sensible preventative care to ensure the nails are properly trimmed in a safe way and a reduced fee is available to those over 65 years.
Other foot complaints such as dry skin and callus can be addressed and over all Mr Thomson will aim to provide you with a very thorough treatment to get your feet in the best possible condition.
