Great news, I am able to see more clients

Relaxation of guidelines means I can see more clients. I have adopted a traffic light triage system

Red patients- high risk
Amber patients – moderate risk
Green patients low risk

Following professional guidance we will now be able to start seeing those with mild conditions (green on our triaging system) once I have seen the cancelled red and amber patients. This will only be where self care advice or a video consult is not possible.
All practices will move at different speeds due to different patient groups and staffing but all will be prioritising safety.


I will be in touch with our patients to rebook cancelled appointments as soon as I can.
I am only booking 3 weeks ahead in case I develop symptoms. If you have a problem before we contact you then please call 01329 832074 or 023 9269 6948 for help.


Thank you for your continuing support of our small business at this time. It means the world to me.

Please note, this is NOT a return to normal, shielding patients are advised to take the first appointments of the day, if you are shielding you CAN go to medical appointments, that obviously includes visiting me.

Priority will be given to red patients and then amber and lastly green patients, I know my patients inside out and can already work out what triage you will be in.

Nail Surgery – ingrowing or painful thick nails

A common condition that I see which can be resolved with surgery.

Ingrowing or painful nails have a number of causes; shape of the nail, ill fitting shoes or trauma are some of the reasons that the condition arises.

A brief assessment is performed and anaesthetic is used to extract the problem nail. Post surgery, the toe must be kept clean and a dressing applied daily.

The following link to a video is really useful.

Running Injuries

Injuries are often caused by other underlying problems.

Many of you may have taken up running recently or increased your running and could now be experiencing pain or injury.

As Podiatrists, we look at the whole of the lower limb so rather than just treating the painful area, we delve deeper to find the cause so that the issue has less chance to reoccur.

During the current situation, it is not advisable to visit a clinic. However, a working diagnosis and treatment plan can be derived from a through history and tele-health consultation.

Why not book a biomechanics consultation with me online? I will send you a consultation form to complete which will save time and allow me to have a clearer overview of the problem before the consultation where I can concentrate on the key areas and issues that you are having.
