Please be advised that we remain open during the Welsh fire-break lockdown that will run from 6pm on the 23rd of October to the 9th of November. Our podiatry services are classified as medical appointments and are therefore exempt from business closure during periods of lockdown.
This means that you can leave your home and travel to us to attend your appointment. Both clinics in Dinas Powys and Barry will be open to our patients and as we have done throughout the COVID 19 pandemic we will continue to ensure the safety of both our patients and our staff by wearing full PPE and following strict infection control procedures. Hand sanitiser is available within both of our clinics, all surfaces are regularly cleaned and patient numbers are limited to reduce the risk of cross infection.As before we ask you to wear a face mask and to arrive 'on time' for your appointment - not early to avoid patient cross over.
Please do not attend your appointment if you have any COVID 19 symptoms such as:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
- or if you have been asked to self isolate

We are open from Monday to Friday and run a Saturday morning clinic along with a late Tuesday evening clinic. We can be contacted by telephone throughout the week and you can also contact us via email, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
We offer a variety of appointment types that treat a range of conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
A 40 minute appointment (1 hour for the 1st appointment) that treats a range of conditions which include, general nail cutting, corns, hard skin, calluses and fungal infections such as athlete’s foot and fungal infection of the nail.
We offer a 40 minute ‘Heel Pain’ appointment for patients who are suffering from pain in their foot and/or ankle. Such pain is usually associated with conditions such as plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinopathy.
We also offer extended, hour long, musculoskeletal appointments for patients where pain is located above the ankle, where a deeper investigation of symptoms and patient biomechanics is required or when the pain is the result of a sporting injury or accident.
All patients who would like to book a ‘Heel Pain’ appointment must first use our online assessment tool to check whether their condition can be treated in our ‘Heel Pain’ clinic.
Treatment for toenails that have grown into the surrounding skin. Big toes are often affected, either on one or both sides. Nails curl and pierce the skin, which becomes red, swollen and tender.
A full consultation and assessment along with initial treatment for verrucae. We offer a variety of treatments to treat verrucae at The Vale Foot Clinic. These include traditional treatments such as the use of salicylic acids along with other methods such as cryotherapy and topical treatments such as ‘Verrutop’ that have been proven to be very effective when treating difficult warts and verruca.

Nail surgery is a small surgical operation which we undertake to help patients manage painful toe conditions such as ingrowing toe nails and involuted nails. We remove either part or all of the toenail to manage these painful conditions.
