Foot Care North Norfolk
Onyfix bands for ingrown nails
Referral for orthotics
A Foot Health Practitioner (FHP) is qualified to provide routine foot care and maintain good health.
I will assess the condition of your feet, treat as appropriate and refer when required.
We spend most of our lives on our feet and they bare our weight, yet we take them for granted.
It is a priority to maintain good foot health particularly if the following relates to you:
Long term medication
Long term illness
Holt & Melton Constable Medical Practices and Coastal Health & Wellbeing (aka Wells Community Hospital) offer ground-floor treatment rooms, both locations have ample parking with bus stops close by. Coastal Health & Wellbeing also has a wonderful cafe and offers services for the community.
Because they are health care settings, some precautions are still in place. If you have any viral flu/vomiting symptoms then I respectfully ask that you postpone your appointment.
Most appointments take 1/2 hour. In the event you are late, it is unlikely I will be able to see you as this will delay the next patient appointment. In this case, please contact myself or reception ASAP.
NEW PATIENT FORM
Before we begin your first treatment we will complete your medical history and consent to treat / GDPR form. If you are unsure, then please have to hand a list of your medications and what you have been diagnosed with.
ASSESSMENT OF CAPACITY
When an appointment is made by a relative or carer, I will ask if the patient has sufficient capacity to agree to their treatment. If they lack capacity, then I require the consent form completed and signed by the person making the booking, along with providing payment.
A HOME VISIT
Before my visit, we will have discussed your appointment time and parking etc. I endeavour to be with you within the hour I have given, however, if I am running late or early then I will call you ASAP.
Each treatment can differ, but I will normally spend 1/2 to 1 hour with you.
If I have any concerns during your appointment that need medical intervention then we will discuss a referral to your GP or District Nurse.
If you have a dog/cat, please kindly pop him somewhere behind doors. I am an animal lover, but it can be a challenge during treatment.
And lastly, my visits always include a friendly smile and a good catch-up. You are after all a person above the feet! Your treatment finishes with a little foot massage with hydromol cream or your prescribed lotion, leaving you and your feet feeling relaxed and comfortable again.
HOW TO PAY
I take card payments from a SumUp machine. I also take cash, cheque and BACS. I can email and text your receipts or invoices.
REMINDER NOTICE OF APPOINTMENT
Unfortunately I do not have the facility to send out a reminder text/email or phone call to each of my patients about their pending appointment. I do provide an appointment card at each treatment and therefore ask that you transfer that information onto your diary.
CANCELLATION AND NO SHOW POLICY
Once you have booked an appointment, I have reserved time in my diary, planned my day according to location or paid room fees. Therefore, if you need to cancel your appointment then I respectfully request 48 hours' notice. In the event of a 'no show' whereby you have forgotten your appointment or failed to cancel your appointment within 48 hours, then a 'no show' fee will be incurred to cover my costs. In an unavoidable situation such as ill health, your fee can be discussed.
