Hard skin is an uncomfortable skin complaint, and we see it in our clinic on a day to day basis. This uncomfortable and painful skin can make walking and moving difficult, reducing your quality of life.

Our feet do a lot of work and are responsible for carrying the rest of our bodies, so we must look after them well and treat them with respect.

We advice Diabetic Foot Health reviews as per NICE guidelines every six months. Also your blood circulation to the feet will be checked using an ultrasound and your peripheral neurological sensation tested.
