Forth Valley Top Toes provides a personal toenail clipping service to elderly and disabled people who have no underlying medical conditions but are unable to cut their own toenails and struggle to afford private podiatry.
Our clients receive toenail clipping every 6-10 weeks and are given a basic foot care check by an NHS Trained Personal Foot Care Volunteer.
We only offer basic nail clipping, we cannot treat corns, bunions, or ingrowing toenails and you cannot be taking long term steroid tablets, immunosuppressive or chemotherapy treatments.
If you have, or are taking, any of these we would suggest that you seek advice from your GP, pharmacist or private podiatrist.
All our Personal Foot Care Volunteers have been trained by NHS Forth Valley podiatry team and have learned the skills to carry out basic foot assessments, nail clipping, filing and give foot care advice.
Each appointment costs £10.00. A nipper set is given to each client at their first appointment and the client must bring this with them to each appointment.
