A registered nurse from Oswestry has set up her own business after serving over 30 years as a nurse.

Judith Lea previously worked at RJAH, Chirk Community Hospital and Llanfyllin Medical Centre, before taking her final nursing post as a senior sister in charge of the medical centre at Shrewsbury School, where she was in charge of a small team looking after the health of around 800 boarding pupils.

In need of a new challenge and to be her own boss, Judith decided to set up Oswestry Foot Clinic, providing a variety of foot healthcare services. “I’ve dipped into foot-related subjects previously,” says Judith, “completing nursing courses on diabetes and dermatology to name a few. I’ve also got diplomas in reflexology and therapeutic body massage.”

In addition, Judith studied at the College of Foot Health Practitioners in Birmingham to learn more and gained an accredited qualification as a foot health practitioner.

She has set up a clinic in the ground floor annexe, attached to her home on Monkmoor Avenue in Oswestry. Only half a mile from the town centre, the clinic is a warm, comfortable and relaxing environment, fully equipped to offer foot care to all ages, including; diabetic patients, the elderly and disabled who are unable to look after their own feet.

“I cut nails, treat corns, callouses and nail problems, including thickened fungal nail, ingrown nails, verruca and athletes foot. I can apply protective dressings and design specific cushioning as needed,” adds Judith, “therapeutic leg massage and reflexology is also something I offer.”

Judith advises patients to book foot maintenance appointments every six to eight weeks and is currently offering a deal to new patients, who will get their fourth appointment for free.
