Age UK Hereford and Localities provide a basic toenail cutting and filing service for the over-50s, who have difficulty cutting their own toenails, due to frailty or a disability of some sort.
Age Uk holds regular clinics for patients at Fownhope Medical Centre on a Tuesday afternoon.
Please note this is not a chiropody service.
The Footcare Service is provided by volunteers who have received training in basic footcare and toenail cutting from a Registered Chiropodist.
This scheme is not suitable for people requiring more complex foot treatment or for those with certain medical conditions.
Clients who use this service are required to purchase a footcare kit at a cost of £12.00, which must be taken to every footcare clinic appointment. There is a £10.00 charge for each subsequent appointment. Footcare clinics will be held at the Fownhope Medical Centre on a regular basis.
If you would like to use this service please make a telephone appointment with the Practice Nurse who can refer you.
