At Will Adams NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
If you are unable to receive the treatment you need on the NHS, but don’t have private health insurance, look for this icon to discover the option of paying for yourself.
A bunion is a painful, often inflamed deformity of the big toe joint which usually gets worse over time. Surgical correction commonly involves further procedures rather than only removing the bony lump or the inflamed bursa; such as realignment of the metatarsal bone using metal screws or other fixation techniques.
This develops when the edge of the toenail grows down and cuts into the surrounding skin, causing pain, swelling and/or bleeding. Over the counter remedies usually solve the problem. In severe cases surgery is possible to remove some or all of the nail.
This includes any surgical procedure on the foot that uses the latest technology to make fewer, smaller incisions, resulting in reduced tissue damage and scarring. Cases can often be treated on a day patient basis.
Lumps like ganglions beneath the skin can be removed if they are causing pain or difficulty with footwear.
Common deformities affecting the small toe joints result in contractures and painful hard skin (corns). This condition can be caused by tight footwear or inflammatory arthritis. Following failed conservative treatment, surgical correction is advised to achieve a more comfortable fit in a normal shoe.
Please be aware that we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
