Published by Dudley CVS
Stepping Out helps to keep people mobile and maintain their independence by providing a basic foot care service. Age UK Birmingham and The Black Country provide this service in partnership with Dudley Integrated Health and Care NHS Trust, through trained staff and volunteers.

How do I access the Service?

You can refer yourself or be referred from your GP.

Who can use Stepping Out?

Toenail cutting and filing of hard skin is provided if you are:

– aged 60 or above

– registered with a Dudley GP

– not eligible for NHS Podiatry Services

– have difficulty looking after your own feet.

To ensure that you are suitable for this service, you will initially be assessed before any treatment is given.

Do I have to pay for this service?

There is no charge for the initial assessment. If you qualify for the service, you will then need to purchase your own personal nail care kit from us, which is a one-off cost. There is also a charge each time you receive your foot care treatment.

Where are the clinics held?

Clinics are held at Cross Street Health Centre, Cross Street, Dudley, DY1 1RN.
