Appointment Information

All clinical and home visiting services operate Monday to Friday between 9am - 5pm and all services are by scheduled appointment only, using agreed booking.

The only exception to this is the Emergency Nail Clinic, which is held every Monday and Thursday, between 1.30pm - 3.00pm, where patients with an in-growing toenail can attend without a prior booked appointment. The Emergency Nail Clinic is held in the Blue Zone at University Hospital Lewisham.


Why choose Foot Health Services at Lewisham?

  • In August 2011 with the integration of both hospital and community services, a new 5 chair community foot health clinic was opened on the site of University Hospital Lewisham. As well as providing general podiatry services, more specialist services are provided from this new clinical site.
  • In June 2013, two new group education sessions started for people who present to the service with heel pain and verrucae. These group sessions will be aimed at providing people with the necessary information to enable them to self-manage their conditions

 

What else do you need to know?

Home visiting service

The Trust provides a home visiting service for patients who are unable to attend any of the clinics. However, if the client is able to leave their home either escorted or unescorted and travel on foot, by bus, in a taxi or on dial-a-ride, they will be asked to attend the clinic. Clients that are able to attend GP or dental appointments etc will not be considered housebound.

Acute Foot Service

The Acute Foot Service is provided at University Hospital Lewisham by specialist podiatrists. The service provides a point of expertise for second opinion and shared care for members of the Foot Health Services Team.
