About Us

Brighton Chiropody and Foot Health is a family business run by mother and daughter team, Karen Butterfill and Claire Hance. Originally established by Karen in 1989, Karen was joined by her mother, Trish, a retired district nurse, who qualified as a chiropodist and joined the practice in 1992. Claire followed in their footsteps and qualified as a foot health practitioner in 2009. Trish has long since retired, but Karen and Claire continue to offer home visits across Brighton & Hove and Mid Sussex.
