Caring for you through COVID-19
We are following guidelines from Public Health England and The College of Podiatry – our professional body.
We have gone through a rigorous risk assessment as required by the College of Podiatry and we are open. We are able to treat ALL foot conditions including ingrown nails, verruca, corns and all other foot conditions including hard skin and thick toenail issues . All patients will be required to wear a mask (we have them if you forgot yours). Hand gel is available.
We will also be wearing gloves, masks, an apron and a face visor as directed by government regulations.
All of the instruments we use, will be fully sterilised to medical standards using a professional steam autoclave – something that we have always done. Between each patient, all touched surfaces will be cleaned with a bleach solution or proprietary medical grade-cleaning product. We are spacing all our appointments to allow for social distancing and to ensure we have time to clean the clinic and sterilise the equipment between patients.
Please arrive on time, but be prepared to wait outside the building to allow us to socially distance you from any other patient.

I enjoy all aspects private practice has to offer, getting to know my patients and their needs. My special interests are the impact of diabetes on the foot. I have twin boys, and when I’m not running around after them , I love keeping fit, going to the gym and socialising with friends.

Claire – North Shields
“After putting up with sore feet and in particular my big toe, for years, it finally dawned on me to have them looked at, after googling loads of options to help, none of which worked, I visited walk on air and was straight away put at ease by Pamela, I was advised that for my foot type, I'd been doing all sorts slightly wrong, utterly amazed after that very first visit I was absolutely pain free! For the first time in about 3 years! I've now decided to go back every 6 weeks or so to keep on top of things, over the moon with the results, highly recommend here to everyone!”
