This is a very exciting week for Stride Clinic and Age UK Cheshire.
Age UK is the UK’s largest charity for older people and they are determined to keep the over 50’s on their feet. Cutbacks in the NHS mean that basic foot care and toenail cutting services are no longer accessible to many and Age UK Cheshire are aware that this can cause older people to become isolated due to the problems associated with painful long nails and untreated foot problems.
It is so important that footcare is carried out by a HCPC registered podiatrist or assistant practitioner and to this end Stride Clinic and Age UK Cheshire have developed a basic footcare and toenail cutting service that is affordable and accessible within the Age UK Cheshire Northwich Community Centre.
