Following your visit, you can decide if you would like to proceed with permanent nail correction to fix your troublesome nail.

The procedure itself can take approximately 60 minutes (90 minutes for complex, or multiple nail corrections) and we’ll advise you when to return for review appointments to check your progress.

“Just Nails” Nail-Cutting Only Service
We don’t always have to correct troublesome nails and you may not want us to. But if it’s difficult to cut the nails yourself (and there are a huge number of physical and health-related problems that can prevent this) our podiatrists offer a service called “Just Nails“.

If you feel you may be suitable, just make a normal podiatry appointment so our team can assess the health of your feet and your general health. This initial assessment, which includes treatment, is our standard clinical appointment fee of £65 for new patients, and £55 if you are already one of our existing patients.

If you are suitable for the Just Nails service, a note will be made on your record, and when making future appointments just mention “Just Nails” and we’ll book you in with a reduced fee of £40.

Please note, this service may not be suitable for ingrown nails, complex nail problems, or where you have complex health that may affect the feet, such as diabetes. Your podiatrist can discuss your suitability at your assessment.
