Randell's Footcare

Diabetic Footcare

Good diabetic footcare is very important for anyone with diabetes as your risk of foot problems is greater. 

Diabetes causes damage to the nerve fibres within your body. The first ones to be affected are those reaching down to your legs and feet. This is called neuropathy. It causes a loss of feeling which means your body’s ability to let you know if you have a cut or a break in your skin is reduced. So it is vital you inspect your feet regularly.

Diabetes can also reduce the amount of blood reaching your legs and feet, which is essential for wound healing.  

Therefore, both your body’s ability to sense when there is a cut on your feet and your body’s ability to heal a wound are reduced. This is why we advise you not to cut your own toenails as this could cause a wound that does not heal.

Regular appointments with a podiatrist can help you best protect your feet and overall health.

I really want to thank Aidan and the team for looking after me so well. I knew I was in good hands from my first appointment and felt truly taken care of over the course of my treatment. Aidan was friendly, knowledgeable, and totally on the case. We built a rapport over a series of appointments and he held a genuine interest in my wellbeing which made me feel really relaxed and at ease. It was excellent service and, on top of everything, he cured me! I’d give 6 stars if I could!

My son had a procedure for an ingrowing toenail and we are extremely happy with the outcome and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Randell’s Footcare. Damini who completed the procedure was wonderful, so kind to my son and extremely professional. The follow ups with Charlotte were superb and my son is now pain free.

A friend advised me to seek treatment from Randells for what I thought were ingrowing toenails that I could deal with myself. What did I know!! Needed expert professionalism to sort me out, stop the pain and restore real comfort to my feet. For over 70 years I’d assumed I had no problems. Arrogant and in pain! Don’t put up with it. Get help from the professionals. I wish I’d done it earlier!

I had suffered with fungal nail infection in my big toes for years and nothing had worked. I started going to Randell’s and they successfully eliminated the infection. Although very happy my feet were healthy again, I was very self conscious of having half a big toenail on each foot and hated anyone seeing my feet. The treatment enabled me to confidently wear open toed footwear again.

 The process was quick and done to the highest standard. Clare answered any questions I had and really put me at ease. The nail reconstruction has really boosted my confidence and has meant I can enjoy swimming and trips to the beach without feeling self conscious.

The nail reconstruction process was thoroughly explained before starting. Clare regularly asked if I was ok. The process was quick and painless. Nail reconstruction is wonderful! I can wear summer sandals and shoes without feeling conscious of how my big toes. I find as my big toes look normal after nail reconstruction, I take more care of my feet generally & I like my feet more!

“I came to Randell’s Footcare to see Aidan for a vascular assessment. He first took a detailed review of my health history and carried out some thorough testing. I am so pleased to have this valuable information I can take forward to future health appointments. I recommended this 100%!”

Jon Reynolds
5/5

-Damini was excellent with putting me at ease and being so calm and understanding when I was very scared of the procedure (I’m not good with injections) she explained everything clearly and answered any questions I had and made sure I was okay throughout. She did the procedure with excellent care and helped to distract me when I needed something to take my mind off it. It couldn’t have gone any better and I really appreciate the level of care, it’s exceptional!  Thank you so much.

Erin Dunning

Charlotte Hayter

I’ve previously tried laser twice at another clinic without success. It was so great to see the verruca responding to the new treatments .I had very old verrucas (20+ years) and there was a chance my immune system couldn’t be prompted to respond to them, however! A year later of monthly treatments and I’m verruca free!

Jean Edgeman
5/5

What an incredible place! I saw Edgar for a full biomechanical assessment. He taught me so much about my feet and how to correct my feet ‘posture. A variety of top grade equipment was used for this assessment along with Edgar making me feel comfortable and explaining everything so well. The clinic had a lovely atmosphere with a real family feel. I’ve been to many podiatry clinics but nothing was ever as good as this! 100% recommend!

Aidan achieved the absolutely best balance of professionalism and friendliness that put me at ease and he dealt effectively with my diagnosis and treatment. I’ve had no pain since the appointment so far and I had been experiencing quite a lot of discomfort prior to contacting you. I will be returning regularly to maintain good foot health. I learned a lot during my appointment.

All the staff at Randall’s Footcare are outstanding. Professional. knowledgeable, experienced and always friendly. They have been brilliant with my feet taking time to look after them and also ensuring that ongoing medical issues are dealt with professionally. Thank you so much.

Maureen Roy
5/5

During the treatment, she checked the blood flow to my feet because I’m diabetic and we both noticed my pulse was slow and she warned me of the potential dangers.
On Thursday evening my pulse was 45 and Friday morning 35 so I immediately rang the doctor who called for an ambulance!
I was rushed to hospital and on Saturday went into the operating theatre and was fitted with a pacemaker. Without Clare’s warnings the potential outcome doesn’t bare thinking about. Please send her my sincerest thanks for alerting me to the dangers.

Derek Selden
5/5

I just wanted to say the Podiatrist I saw was absolutely marvellous. She was very gentle – nothing hurt – and she explained everything that she was going to do. She also answered my numerous questions clearly. She also kept up just the right amount of inconsequential chat so that I knew she was concentrating on getting my feet to feel amazing, but also for me to be relaxed. I will certainly be requesting her again. Thank you.
