Thank you for visiting our website

As of 9th July 2020, we have taken the decision to close the clinic and not take any further bookings for face to face consultations due to continuing levels of COVID-19 in the community.

It will not re-open until COVID-19 is very low or clear from the UK. This is to protect you, us and all of our families and friends.

I apologise for the loss of service. In the meantime, we are looking at other ways of helping clients.

Please check our website for news and updates over the coming weeks and months.

If you think that your health or feet put you at risk, then we advise that you initially contact your GP or NHS  111 for advice,  guidance and possibly treatment.

If you are healthy, but have a foot health issue, we advise you to seek help from a HCPC registered podiatrist, as a short term measure, until we can help you.

Keep safe and protect yourself. Thank you for your interest in our services.

Surgery Visits

When you call us make sure you know when you are available, and have phone / diary / calendar to note down details of your appointment that we book. We offer a 24/7 answer and message service for advice, enquiries, and appointments.

To book an appointment with Paul de Haas – call 01606 49641

Evening weekday appointments, currently, may be available, depending on our other professional and personal commitments, for any clients who wish to attend outside daytime working hours due to their commitments. This keeps the weekend free for you and us to cover our other responsibilities or enjoy our leisure time.

Home Visits

We are mainly a clinic based service. When a home visit is necessary we will bring with us a range of medicaments, dressings, and instruments. This ensures that we do not compromise on the minimum standards of quality of care we would provide if you had visited our premises. However, there are limits to the type of treatments that we can offer as home visits.

Due to the extra time dedicated to return travel from our clinic to the home where the podiatry treatment is to be carried out, we charge a supplement to cover some of the cost of a clinic treatment that we are unable to do (whilst travelling from / to surgery) and to cover our motor running costs that normally are borne by the client when they visit the surgery using their own or a friends car, or a taxi, or bus.

We have flat access to the rear of the property for buggies, wheelchairs, and clients with mobility problems.

Evening weekday appointments, currently, may be available, depending on our other professional and personal commitments, for any clients who wish to attend outside daytime working hours due to their commitments.
