Nail trimming/clipping

If you’re struggling to cut your nails on your own, we can help. Pop in for an appointment and we’ll do it for you – we’ll even keep an eye on your foot health while we’re at it!

While you wait for your appointment


  • wear wide, comfortable shoes or sandals
  • take paracetamol if you’re able to (check with your pharmacist)


  • do not cut your toenail – leave it to grow out
  • do not pick at your toe or toenail
  • do not wear tight, pointy shoes

If you need urgent care

If you are in severe pain or are concerned about infection please call the NHS 111 helpline for immediate advice.
If you believe you need urgent care please call 999.


Sepsis is life-threatening. It can be hard to spot.
If you think you or someone you look after has symptoms of sepsis, call 999 or go to A&E. Trust your instincts.
