IMPORTANT - Please note
Due to the current COVID 19 Pandemic, Feetfirst Healthcare, along with other similar healthcare professionals, has taken the decision to close the practices for chiropody and podiatry appointments, both at Ilford and Bushey Heath temporarily, for the ongoing safety of both patients and staff.
Please be assured that as soon as it is safe to do so, the practices will reopen for appointments. In the meantime, answerphone messages will be dealt with daily, and urgent problems will be responded to appropriately.
Robert Coombs and his team would like to take the opportunity to remind all clients to follow the government advice and stay home wherever possible and hope to be able to welcome you through the doors again before too long.

A chiropodist is someone trained in the treatment of minor foot disorders and who also provides general foot-care advice. Chiropody treatment includes cutting of the nails, the removal of in-grown nails, callouses and corns, treating foot ailments such as plantar warts (verrucae), athlete’s foot, sweaty feet, foot odour and dry or cracked heels.
Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who have successfully completed a minimum of 3 years specific training to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They can also treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems including toenail problems, such as thickened toenails, fungal nail infections, ingrowing toenails and verrucas.
Physiotherapy can help ill, injured or disabled people recover movement to be able function to their full potential, with an holistic approach that directly involves the patient in their own care.

• Identifying the cause of the problem and seeking ways to reduce or eliminate it
• Facilitating the body’s natural ability to heal itself through gentle stretching and mobilising, and
• Offering additional exercise and health advice to patients
