Forth Valley Top Toes provides personal footcare services for people who have no underlying medical conditions but for reasons of age or ability are unable to cut their own toenails. We currently deliver our service in Falkirk, Stirling and Alloa offering thirteen clinics at nine localities. In the next year, NHS Forth Valley Podiatry are estimated to be discharging approximately 600 people who cannot manage their own footcare and are no longer eligible for NHS care. This post will require the correct person to maintain the current high level of provision and develop the services in new areas.
This will include:
• retention, recruitment, and training of volunteers to a high standard.

• developing and implementing a robust marketing strategy to inform the local communities of the service delivery.
• increasing clinic appointment capacity to meet the demands of the service users.
