Ottery & District Nail Cutting Service

Nail cutting is carried out by our volunteer nail cutters who have been trained by an NHS Podiatrist. (Please note that our nail cutters are not professional podiatrists).

The service is available to all those who have difficulty cutting their toenails and who are not entitled to receive this service under the NHS.

Unfortunately there are some restrictions with regard to whom we can offer the nail cutting service and it is not suitable for persons who have:

  • Intermittent claudication / severe poor circulation
  • Corns, callus, severely thickened or deformed toe nails
  • Severe foot / toe deformities
  • Recurrent foot infections requiring antibiotic therapy
  • Had surgery to arteries in legs or feet
  • Diabetes

If you have any of the above it may be that you are eligible for nail-cutting on the NHS.

There is a charge for our nail cutting service of £12 per appointment. The first appointment charge is £25 which includes a slightly longer appointment and a pair of nail clippers for the client.

It is advisable to book in advance as the sessions do get booked up very quickly.

If you are interested in finding out more about this service please call 01404 813041.
