Chiropody on the NHS

It is possible to get chiropody on the NHS but it is typically only available for people with chronic health conditions. According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, foot health provision on the NHS can only be offered if you have a long-term health condition such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis.  

If you have a minor foot problem that is not directly affecting your health or mobility (such as a verruca), it is very unlikely that you will be eligible to get chiropody on the NHS. There are however a number of practitioners who provide chiropody for a reasonable price outside of the NHS. On Therapy Directory we list chiropodists who are fully qualified to carry out treatment effectively.
