"My feet feel much better already"

About: Dewsbury Health Centre / Podiatry

(as the patient),

I am a pensioner and because of certain ailments I am unable to get to my toes properly to cut my nails etc. Although my wife does her best for me she finds my big toe nails too hard and difficult to cut. I had my annual check up with Nurse Keyworth at Paddock Surgery, Thornhill, Dewsbury recently and I explained about my feet also mentioning that my big toe nails are inverted (ingrowing) and because I take warfarin for irregular heart beat I would like some advice and treatment.

She referred me to the Podiatry Clinic at Dewsbury Health Centre. My appointment came through within a couple of weeks and today I saw Johanna at Dewsbury Health Centre. She was very helpful and gave my feet a full examination, cut my toenails, attended to a small corn and advised me about footcare. She has also given me the documentation and advice as to how to make further appointments which I certainly will do. My appointment was on time and I am more than happy with my treatment. My feet feel much better already.

It's really nice to hear a positive story from a patient who is new to our service,

Your comments have been passed on to Johanna.

Thank you.
