We offer a wide range of podiatry services in our clinic to ensure each patient has their individual needs met
All new routine care patients will receive an appointment of up to 45 minutes. Your new patient appointment will be with one of our clinical team to assess the condition of their feet and discuss any recurrent issues. Once this is complete the agreed treatment will be carried out during this appointment. The goal of this appointment is to provide maintenance of healthy feet through care of nails, hard skin, corns, fungal nails and ingrown toenails. Skin care and advice can be provided for conditions such as Verrucae, Athlete’s foot, fissures and Psoriasis. Any management will be provided in this appointment followed by a short foot massage with cream to make to feel light on your feet afterwards.
Up to 15 minutes - a treatment for existing patients who only require a simple nail cut and sides cleared.
Up to 30 minutes - a longer treatment which will involve reduction in nail thickness, conservative treatment of ingrown toenails and curling nails.
Fungal nails are a common problem, which are characterised by a green/yellow/brown/black colouring and a brittle, flaky texture. Our team will assess your nail/s and provide the most effective course of action for treatment, which may include topical treatment advice or if severe, complete removal.
Corns and Callus are formations of hard skin which are often caused by pressure from ill fitting footwear, excessive physical activity or problematic biomechanics. Corns and Callus will not get better without treatment as the skin will continue to thicken and cause pain and irritation.
We offer full toenail treatment services to remove any ingrowing or deformed nails when necessary. Ingrown toenails if left untreated can lead to pain, swelling and infection.
Surgery to remove part or all the toenail is often required if the nail is frequently re-growing into the side of the toe. Surgery is a permanent solution to cure the problem and is a simple procedure, carried out using local anaesthetic. The package includes Surgery, followed by two redressing/review appointments and a pack of Mepore dressings.
Only two follow up redressing’s should be required. If additional redressing appointments are required these will be charged at £25 per appointment.
Blisters are common in people of all ages and are caused by friction, usually from socks or shoes rubbing whilst exercising. Blisters can appear on any part of the foot, including under a nail, and can cause soreness and if left may lead to infection.
Our team of specialists can treat large or infected blisters and provide advice on the best course of action to avoid recurrence.
Verrucae are small warts which can appear on the toes or soles of your feet. Our podiatry team can advise on the best course of action to treat and remove your verrucae.
£40 for first consultation. Additional cost dependent on treatment required.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin which grows best in warm, moist environments, hence it often starting between the toes, but can also spread to the sole of the foot.
Treatment and advice for Athlete’s foot depend on the type you have and the severity of the condition.
Diabetes can reduce blood flow to the feet and may lead to loss of sensation, meaning injuries and cuts need to be quickly treated and managed, to avoid infection and permanent damage. Regular foot health checks of those with diabetes should be carried out at least once a year by a podiatry specialist.
Treatment and advice for Diabetes foot care depend on the type you have and the severity of the condition.
If you require any routine treatment in conjunction at this appointment, there will be no extra charge.
For those who are genuinely housebound and are unable to come into the clinic, we can provide routine Podiatry treatment in the comfort of your own home. It is of vital importance that people feel comfortable and trusting of people who come into their homes, and we understand and respect this. Everything needed to provide the effective and thorough Podiatry treatment you need is brought to you. A time slot of arrival for the Podiatrist will be given to you so that you don’t need to wait around all day. This may be affected by traffic and travel issues, so this is usually an hour-long arrival slot (arrival of Podiatrist between 10.00-11.00AM for example).
We also provide a service to nursing and care homes where there are multiple occupancies to provide quality Podiatry treatments for clients. If you would like to discuss bringing in Sussex Total Foot Care to deliver this essential service, please call or email us to discuss the numbers of clients and package costs per patient.
If you suffer with general lower limb discomfort, sharp pains or reoccurring foot/ankle problems when exercising, there could be a simple cause which may be easy to solve with help from our clinical team.
At Sussex Total Foot Care, we carry out detailed biomechanical assessments which check the lower limbs for any issues which may be causing pain, particularly if linked to a sports injury. We also check for any abnormalities and causes of pain, arch height, heel health and joint strength. We would advise that you can wear shorts or comfortable trousers so that we can assess your knees/lower limbs as you move.
This assessment is divided into 4 sections:
1. Medical history and history of the pain/injury
2. Non-Weightbearing assessment
3. Weightbearing assessment
4. Gait Analysis
When our assessments are completed, a tailor-made treatment plan to you is devised. This may consist or rehabilitation of the injury/pain, exercise regimens, footwear recommendations and to consider a prescription of appliances such as orthotics or insoles. Referrals to other healthcare practitioners may be required if further specialist advice is needed.
£68 for first consultation up to 60 minutes assessment, £44 follow up/reviews up to 30 minutes.
Orthotics are prescription mechanical devices which are worn in shoes to help with biomechanical issues and foot pain. Insoles can be purchased over the counter and are used to relieve simple pain and discomfort of more minor foot conditions. Your treatment will be dependent on your condition and our podiatry team will ensure you have the best products to aid recovery and relieve pain.
