About Us

At The Beale Clinic we have two highly skilled Podiatrists Clare Beale and Penny Raeside who are working together to provide you with the best possible treatment. They are approved by the Health and Care Professions Council.

The Beale Clinic was set up by Clare in 2000 to offer a very high standard of care to all age groups in the heart of the Sussex countryside and work hard to have a positive effect on the health and comfort of every client.  They take regular referrals from orthopaedic surgeons and work closely with local GP practices and musculoskeletal therapists.

Clare and Penny’s knowledge and experience of nail and foot conditions ensure the best solutions for any foot problem you might have.  They both regularly attend post grad courses to continuously update their expertise in all the latest treatments, techniques and products.
