Footcare service

Age UK Blackburn with Darwen are working with the NHS to provide a footcare service for people over 50 who are not eligible for NHS Podiatry.

Through their NHS trained staff and volunteers Age UK will offer a toe nail cutting service together with a relaxing footcare treatment including bathing of feet and application of foot cream.

Initially customers will need to be assessed as suitable by an NHS Podiatrist as certain medical conditions may preclude you from using the service. They will arrange this for you and once assessed as suitable they will make an appointment for you at a footcare clinic convenient to you.

For more information contact Age UK Blackburn with Darwen.
