We offer new patient assessment and nail preparation, as well as removal of the gel polish. We use LCN’s extremely elastic UV gel system designed specifically for toenails which adapts to movements of the toe. Its unique adhesive properties hide ridges, deformation, discolouration and protects growing toenails. This treatment can be used for partially missing toenails, toenail damage from trauma or surgery, or as a protective covering due to a chronic medical condition, psoriatic nails or vertical splits. It is suitable for diabetic patients.

    • Verruca needling: This is minor surgery to treat very stubborn verrucas and warts (present for over five years) when all other treatments have failed. The area is anaesthetised and the verruca or wart is repeatedly punctured with a needle until the particles are small enough for the body to absorb and eliminate the virus. The treatment is for adults of 18 plus only. The initial follow-up appointment and GP letter are included.

    Customer Feedback...

    • Thank you for seeing and assessing me so promptly. You really put my mind at ease and prevented an unnecessary trip to the GP which as it turns out would not have yielded any benefit or sorted out the problem I came to you about.
      Happy Customer, Chelmsford
      I found your service thorough and professional. Additionally, I was really delighted to be able to have the time to discuss fully the issues with such an experienced professional. Indeed, following the assessment the advice and treatment you recommended appear to have sorted out a long term problem that was getting worse and causing me increasing pain and discomfort. Many thanks.
      Jackie, Colchester
    • The speed of service, the professionalism shown and the care taken to assess my injuries were second to none. The advice given by Wellbeing helped vastly speed up my recovery and the ongoing support has been invaluable.
      Mike, Colchester
      I'd been putting off going to my GP for a very long time but when my wife mentioned Wellbeing and that I could get an appointment the same week I thought I might as well go for it. I'm so glad I did, my Wellbeing Audiologist was so knowledgeable and took the time to explain both the Microsuction procedure and my condition to me. Understanding why my ears give me so much trouble also put my mind at rest, which has made me a lot happier

    • My Mum attended A&E on Sunday as she was feeling dizzy and unwell.  She had a thorough check over and was discharged but told that her ears were blocked.  She attended her GP on Monday who could not help, I phoned Wellbeing on Tuesday morning and was able to an appointment with Jo later that day and it has made a huge improvement for her. Many thanks.
