Frequently Asked Questions
There is a satellite clinic in Alcester, Warwickshire for existing and new patients from the Stratford, Bidford, Evesham and Alcester areas. It is based at Theorem Health & Wellness @ The Greig Lifestyles.
Due to the length of experience and extent of training of the podiatrists at Health First, we are able to assess and diagnose all but the rarest foot-related pathologies, the vast majority of which are treatable by us.
Initial appointments range from £59 - £123 depending on the level of assessment required.
Follow-up appointments range from £37 - £57 depending on the amount of treatment required.
There are primetime and out-of-hours surcharges - please ask us for more details.
Additional assessments or advanced treatments may incur extra charges.
Packages of care for the treatment of specific conditions are available and will be discussed after assessment of the condition(s).
Summary information on our fees is supplied in our New Patient Letter and is displayed in our reception area and full details are available from there upon request.
The time spent with patients during an appointment will be utilised fully to discuss their presenting problem(s) in order that we can fix their feet / foot-related problem as best we can. However if you have any questions or queries regarding our fees, please bring that to our attention so we can spend time addressing those instead.
We are a clinic that sees private fee-paying clients. These charges are the same for all clients, irrespective of age. NHS patients are able to be seen but there are no reduced fees or discounts available.
However, our fees are very competitive and represent excellent value for money as we always try to improve foot problems and even cure them where possible. In the long-term, this can result in less need to see a Chiropodist/Podiatrist, thereby providing potential cost-savings for clients.
Bunions are a symptom of an underlying problem with the mechanics of the foot and sometimes inappropriate footwear contributes to the problem. We are able to treat the abnormal mechanics and provide appropriate advice on the care of bunions.
We are registered with all major Health Insurers. However, each one has different criteria that even vary according to the level of cover you have. Some insurers require a letter of referral from a Consultant or GP, others just require a receipt from ourselves for you to claim back any fees paid.
Please check your insurance cover as the onus is on you to settle any invoices – do not assume they will pay our fees.
