Forbes Feet ProPedi
The ProPedi is a professional and luxury pedicure, formulated by Claire Forbes and is exclusively delivered by Forbes Feet approved practitioners. During your treatment, your nails are cut, cleared and filed. We will also treat toughened nails and gently remove hard skin. We use our refreshing Forbes Feet Hygiene Wash to cleanse and disinfect skin and nails, and finish off with a restorative and energising foot massage using our Forbes Feet Hydrating Cream.
This treatment is a non-medical pedicure focussing on restoring foot and nail health. It is not delivered by a podiatrist and therefore does not address corns, callus or ingrowing nails.Forbes Feet ProPedi (up to 45 minutes) | £45
A biomechanical foot assessment is a detailed examination of your foot and leg function. It helps to diagnose the cause of pain in heels, ankles, knees, hips and back.
We would recommend an assessment if you're struggling with plantar fasciitis pain, Achilles tendonitis, flat feet, joint pain, bunions or sport injuries. Our podiatrists will often prescribe orthoses to help relieve your pain and discomfort. There are two types - over the counter (OTC) and custom-made orthoses.
Orthoses or orthotics are more commonly known as insoles. They are foot shaped devices fitted into your shoe to support your foot arch, help correct alignment, act as shock absorbers and help with mobility of the foot.
Traditional or OTC orthoses are adjusted to fit your shoe and the shape of your foot - you can go home with foot support the very same day.
Custom orthoses are made from various high tech materials such as carbon fibre and are often prescribed for more complex issues. The orthoses are designed to offer advance support to target your specific concerns and are uniquely contoured to your foot arches and shape. Custom orthoses are lab made and can take up to 6 weeks to arrive.
Our podiatrists will advise you of the most effective treatment plan and device during your initial assessment. For your assessment and orthoses fitting, please bring along the pair of shoes you wear most regularly.

We will look to resolve the troublesome in-growing or diseased nail using less invasive, non-surgical procedures and treatments first, nail surgery is often the final and more permanent solution.
During your assessment, your podiatrist will examine your affected nail, take a full medical history and give you aftercare advice and support. Your podiatrist will also advise how many dressings changes you will need.
During the surgery, the nail is partially or fully removed under local anesthetic. It can take up to 6 weeks for the nail area to heal.
We advise you to rest after your surgery, and if you are feeling well, you can go back to work the next day. Avoid driving immediately after your surgery as your foot may feel numb from the anesthetic. You should also avoid high impact sports, swimming or any activity that increases pressure on your feet.
Nail surgery per nail (up to 45 minutes) | £250
