Qualified NHS Nurses will be on hand to assess your legs, give advice, undertake investigation and, if necessary provide treatment.

Alongside the clinical service, a wonderful team of volunteers run the Leg Club Cafe, where you can enjoy refreshments and a chat whilst waiting to see the nurses, and/or after your appointment. You are not alone! There’s a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.



Not sure it's for you? Pop in any Wednesday morning and see what we are all about - you will be made to feel welcome and can see how we operate. Then you can decide if it is what you are looking for.

We are part of the Ellie Lindsay Leg Club Foundation. They produce an excellent range of leaflets which you’re welcome to take. There’s also a very helpful booklet called “What is a Leg Club” which gives you more information.
