Unfortunately, due to the current situation, the Podiatry Walk in clinic has ceased for the foreseeable future. All routine Podiatry clinic appointments have also ceased, however, if people are experiencing any foot problems and require advice, they should contact the department on 0300 300 0024 to discuss this with a Podiatrist.
Foot health has a fundamental link to health and well being.
Infection, ulceration, amputation and disabling foot pain have a significant impact on mobility, independence, quality of life and a person’s ability to work or care for others.
Our foot health team is committed to delivering quality services (fair, timely, safe and effective) to the community, achieving positive outcomes by prevention, improvement, cure and empowerment.
We provide a patient-centred service incorporating individually tailored treatment plans, education and empowerment to support well being and quality of life for patients who frequently present with complex medical and social needs.
If you need advice for any foot-related problem and you are not currently a patient with the department there are two ways in which you may access the podiatry department.
You can utilise our walk-in clinic at Port Talbot Resource Centre or contact our direct access telephone service (Podiatry Direct).
Please note that the podiatry department does not offer a routine nail-cutting service. Specialist nail care advice and clinical treatment is only available where nails are abnormal and causing problems.
The benefit of attending the walk-in clinic without an appointment is that it includes a face-to-face assessment by a podiatrist.
Treatment may also be provided where appropriate.
