Services and Fees

If your feet hurt, something is wrong!

There are hundreds of foot problems - far too many to list on this website!  If you are not sure if your problem is something we are able to treat, please feel free to call or email to clarify.

 

NEW PATIENT APPOINTMENT - £50

30-45 minutes. We need a little extra time to complete a full new patient assessment and discuss your treatment options. Treatment is started in your first appointment, however sometimes you'll need a follow up to complete this.

 

If you are specifically interested in a biomechanical assessment, then you can book this as your first appointment instead.

 

In order to complete a full assessment, you will be asked about your medical history so please bring with you a list of medications.

 

STANDARD CONSULTATION - £40 

20-30 minutes.  These appointments cover almost anything foot related! Sometimes, if there is not enough time - for example, if you need a biomechanics assessment, a follow up appointment will be booked to complete assessment and treatment.

 

SHORT CONSULTATION - £26

10 minutes.  These brief appointments are booked by the podiatrist for some types of reviews.

 

BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT - £70

45 - 60 minutes. An in-depth assessment of your foot mechanics, which can involve a gait analysis, muscle strength testing and assessing flexibility.  Please bring with you any previous orthoses or insoles as well as any specific footwear - for example walking boots, sports footwear, dance or work shoes.  You may be issued pre-fabricated orthoses, temporary orthoses or insoles, be cast for custom made devices or given footwear or exercise advice.  Video gait analysis will soon be available.

 

NAIL SURGERY AND VERUCCA NEEDLING - FROM £200

60-90 minutes.  These might be booked after a clinic consultation.  You will be unable to drive or walk home after your appointment.  The fee includes some follow up appointments and dressings.

 

ORTHOSES AND INSOLES

Temporary orthoses £5 
Simple insoles £50 
Premade or off-the-shelf orthoses £50
Custom made orthoses from £245 (includes follow up appointments and adjustments for 6 months) 

 

A lesson on grammar!  "Orthotic" is the commonly used word, but the correct word is actually "orthosis". The word "orthotic" is actually the adjective, for example "orthotic treatment" or "orthotic device". "Orthosis" is the noun, with the plural "orthoses".  So now you know!  But we will know what you mean, no matter what you call them.  

 

Orthoses are anything that change foot function and mechanics.  This can even include supportive footwear, but most commonly mean plastic or rubber devices that are prescribed to a specific prescription and follow the contours of your feet.  A simple insole is often used to offload a painful area, such as a recurrent corn or painful joint, but can also offer basic arch support. 

 

 

We accept payment via cheque, cash or card machine.

We also sell a range of foot cream, silicon appliances and other helpful items in the clinic.

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

Lots of children come to see podiatrists.  While many of their problems are similar to the adult foot, they do also have their own range of unique issues.  That said, not all young feet require treatment and after careful assessment we will discuss options and advise what is appropriate.

 

STEROID  AND  OSTENIL  INJECTIONS

Hannah is qualified to administer joint and corticosteroid injections. Steroid injections can be very helpful when conservative treatment, such as orthoses, haven’t worked.  Most commonly injections will be for a morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis or hallux limitus.  Referrals from other health professionals are very welcome.
