Chiropody

The Chiropody Team book and arrange their own appointments and they can be contacted in West Wales General Hospital.

The chiropodist can deal with anything from corns, callouses and nail problems, to minor surgical procedures. Self treatment, using corn pads, or solvents is best avoided as they can cause serious problems in the elderly, diabetics and those with poor circulation. Chiropody is available from both private practice and the NHS. Private patients may see the chiropodist of their choice either at their surgery, or at home. NHS provision may be available at local health centres or clinics, but is usually restricted to senior citizens, the disabled, expectant mothers, diabetics and children after a variable waiting period and only on application to the district health authority. Only state-registered chiropodists may work within the NHS.

Minor Surgery

Many conditions requiring minor operations may be treated at surgery eg, cysts, abscesses, ingrown toe nails, skin tags, recurrent nosebleeds. Patients must make an appointment with a GP for an intial assessment and then if convenient the GP will add you to the Minor Surgery waiting list and you will be contacted in due course with an appointment.
