“Just Nails” Nail-Cutting Service

As we get older, our toe nails seem to get further away, and cutting toenails are a challenge for many. There are a huge number of problems that can prevent you from reaching the nails – muscle and joint problems affecting the ability to reach, problems with vision, problems with muscle control, grip, power, and so many more. Our podiatrists see many patients whose problems are only problems with self-care of their nails and we offer a service called “Just Nails“.

All patients who feel they may be suitable should make a normal podiatry appointment, so our team can assess the foot health and general health. This initial assessment, which includes treatment, is our standard clinical appointment fee of £60 for new patients, and £55 for our existing patients.

Where a patient has been assessed and found to be suitable for the Just Nails service, a note will be made on their record, and the patient advised to mention the Just Nails service when they next need treatment so they will be charged a reduced fee of £40 for future appointments. Please note, this service may not be suitable for ingrown nails or complex nail problems, which your podiatrist can discuss at your assessment.

This service was originally intended for some of our retired patients to offer a simple service at a more affordable price, though this service may be suitable for anyone who requires only work for their nails. Simply make a normal podiatry appointment with one of our team and ask about our Just Nails service.
