Nail Cutting Service

Good foot care is crucial in helping older people to stay active and independent. But many older people struggle to care for their feet due to sight impairment or arthritis‚ or they simply can’t reach their feet to cut their toenails. Nearly 1 in 3 older people are unable to cut their own toenails.

Age Connects Torfaen have specially trained staff who provide a chargeable nail cutting service session. The service is available by appointment only:  Blaenavon Medical Centre, Blaenavon.

Authorisation is required from your G.P. as some medical exclusions apply. 

This is a simple nail-cutting service, We are unable to provide:

  • Help with foot care problems such as corns or bunions

  • Nail-cutting for anyone with a medical condition such as kindney failure, blood circulation problems, a history of ulceration or being treated with steroids

  • Have diabetes or taking warfarin unless they have been assessed by the GP practice as being low risk.  (We have a letter for you to take to your doctor)

In these cases, we advise visiting a registered Podiatrist.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible for our service, we will be happy to discuss it with you.
