We operate an appointments-only service. Services are provided in three clinics across the London Borough of Hillingdon. 

We can arrange home (domiciliary) visits for housebound patients and a transport service is available to patients who are immobile but not housebound. 

The service is available from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays. However, we often have limited availability between 4pm and 5pm. 

The Podiatry Service only accepts referrals from GPs and other healthcare professionals that meet its clinical criteria.
