Podiatry Home Visits

If you are unable to make it to the clinic because you are house bound, then a lot of the services that are offered in clinic, can also be offered in your own home. 

Expert Toe Nail Care

Keep On Your Feet regularly treats a variety of common nail problems, ensuring your feet look and feel great.

Nail conditions we regularly treat:

 

Having treated hundreds of people for these conditions, I know it can be embarrassing, but so many people face these issues. So I know how significantly it can impact your quality of life.

 

Treatments can be tailored to making you more comfortable or, if you prefer, can look at being more curative.

Easy Callus Removal

Calluses are areas of thickened skin that develop to protect the skin from pressure and friction. While they are common, untreated calluses can lead to discomfort and sometimes more serious complications.

Common Presentations:

  • Hardened, thick areas of skin

  • Dry, flaky skin patches

  • Areas of skin that feel less sensitive to touch

  • Discomfort when walking or wearing shoes

Calluses can be uncomfortable and can interfere with your daily activities. As a registered podiatrist (and chiropodist), treating callus is a simple process where the hard skin is removed with a scalpel, and buffed smooth with an electric file. 

 

As well as the gentle removal of the callus, there may sometimes be treatments for the underlying causes, such as self-care regimes and insoles to reduce the pressure and friction.

Managing Corns & Verrucas

Corns and verrucas can sometimes seem quite similar on the surface, and some studies have even shown them to be easily mistaken for each other, even though they are quite different in their causes.

Common Symptoms and Appearances:

Corns and verrucas can be painful and can also make you feel self-conscious about your feet. Treatments can either aim to relieve your symptoms, improve the appearances or to eliminate these conditions altogether - both safely and effectively. 

Routine footcare treatments aim to reduce the symptoms of corns and verrucas through debridement (scraping back) and gently scooping out the deeper portions with a sterile scalpel with minimal discomfort. Other treatment options may require consultations or more specialised treatments.

How much does it cost?

Due to the increased time and costs in offering home visits, our fee structure for routine foot care performed in your own home is as follows:

Initial Consultation: £55

Follow-up consultation: £45

Home-visit travel & convenience surcharge per location*

 

Within 5 miles: £65

Each additional mile: £6

*There is no extra fee for additional patients seen at the same location.

How were these prices decided?

Home visits are more time consuming for the podiatrist as the environment may require setting up and the treatments can require the podiatrist to get into awkward positions that are not necessary when treating in a clinical environment. 

The travel and convenience surcharge accounts for

  • additional time that is required for packing and loading equipment

  • the travel time to and from your home

  • the cost of travel to and from your home

  • the extra equipment and consumables required for seeing you in your home

  • the time that is lost for seeing other patients.

Example Fee 1:

If you are a 4 mile drive from the clinic, then the fee would be: 

£55 Initial Consultation + £65 surcharge = £120

Your follow up would be £110. 

Example Fee 2:

If you are a 6 mile drive from the clinic, then the fee would be: 

£55 Initial Consultation + £65 + £6 surcharge = £126

Your follow up would be £116.
