With just a few appointments, we will be able to say goodbye to those unsightly winter feet, and sort out those cracked heels, dry skin, and thick nails.

In addition to many of the sophisticated procedures that we offer at the Sussex Foot Centre, we are also more than happy to take things back to basic.

We realise that many of our patients come to us, primarily because they want their feet to look and feel great! In the clinic, we also have a number of specialist creams which are available to buy, that you simply can’t purchase over the counter elsewhere.

If, however, you are unable to get into clinic at present, we you may want to follow some of these simple tips to help with troublesome and unsightly winter feet! These tips are kindly provided by the College of Podiatry.

 

  • Wash Your Feet Every Day. Use warm, soapy water and take care to dry your feet well, especially between your toes — this will help to prevent fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot.
  • Do Regular Calf Stretches. Get into. routine of doing these every day to help eep your feet supple and to improve flexibility.
  • Pay Attention To Your Socks. Wear well-fitting socks and change them every day to avoid sweaty feet.
  • Trim Your Toenails. Use proper toenail clippers — and cut them straight across, not too short and not down at the corners, as this can lead to ingrowing toenails.
  • Keep Your Feet Moistruised. If the skin on your feet is dry, put moisturiser on your feet before you go to bed, avoiding between the toes (this can lead to fungal infections).
  • Wear The Right Footwear. It is important to make sure your shoes are the right size for your feet. Buy footwear in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest. Get your feet measured if you are unsure of your size.
  • Rotate Your Shoes. Try not to wear the same shoes two days in a row, to reduce your chances of developing a fungal infection.
  • Vary Your Heel Height. Keep high heels for special occasions, as regular use can damage your feet.
  • Check Your Feet Regularly. Giving your feet the once over every week will help you spot any possible problems quickly.

I was in so much pain with my right foot because I got a cyst in it and just found Sussex Foot Centre in google and called them for booking appointment. The person I talked with was so helpful and they offered appointment on the same day. Everybody working at this place were so friendly and experienced. At my first appointment I had a consultation with ultrasound scan and clearly described me the next steps what would solve my problem and it really reassured me because I was so scared and tired from the pain and for long waiting time on GP referrals. For the treatment, I got an appointment on next day (again so fast!!) and already when I came out from the Centre could walk much better and the pain disappeared. I am so grateful for them and still going back for regular checking and advices. I also having issues with my nails too and I am sure I could get a quick solution on those issue too! Everybody having issue with their foot please don't hesitate to get in touch with Sussex Foot Centre - just give a try and I am sure you will don't disappoint! For me honestly was a life-saver. Thank you so much!

Scan first visit, problem located plan worked out, return week later double appointment as we live hour away. Another scan, walk on treadmil, insole made...meanwhile he explained everything, so I could understand. I. Very impressed with the whole experience, and would recommend them to anyone

I have had toe nail surgeries with the Sussex Foot Centre and both times have had very positive experiences. Jon provided excellent treatment and care during the surgeries and in the follow up post surgeries. Jon and Thomas were professional and friendly and they have been so flexible and accommodating with scheduling appointments, as well as providing quick responses by email and telephone. I would recommend the Sussex Foot Centre. Thank you so much!

Jon Collins and team provide excellent patient focused, customer focused care. I have not met a better podiatrist than Jon in over 30 years in healthcare management and 10 years as a patient. As you step into reception you are welcomed with both smile and greeting. Even though it is a busy practice, changes in appointment are politely and readily managed. Forgetfulness and a missed appointment are taken in their stride! I attended first as an ”emergency” patient, three years ago. I was at the local hospital and the Sussex Foot Centre was suggested. I was seen the same afternoon. After months of hobbling, Jon treated my foot with professional skill, exuding warm reassurance. Regular attendance and treatment ensured rapid improvement. The specially created insole proved to be a boon. I have remained with Jon as my podiatrist for three years now. I can think of no reason why I should go elsewhere. I have no hesitancy in recommendinng him. When my GP asked me why I go over to Haywards Heath, my reply was that he is the best.

The treatment and service from Sussex Foot Clinic was excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Over the counter and home remedies had failed miserably. Investing in some professional treatment and following it through diligently was well worth it. Thank you Jon.

I found The Sussex Foot Centre via Google and what a find! I started seeing Jon last summer with painful Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. With Jon’s knowledge, non invasive treatment and orthotics, I am so grateful to him for my pain free feet now! Jon and his team are so helpful, with total professionalism and extensive knowledge - I have learnt so much! Tom on reception is also so very friendly and efficient. Keep up the amazing work you all do.
