Glasgow Royal Infirmary has a specialised Foot and Ankle Service which includes orthopaedic foot and ankle consultants, Advanced Podiatry Practitioners (APP), specialist nurses and other member of the orthopaedic team.
Many foot and ankle problems can be treated by a local Podiatry Service in Community Health Centres. You can self-refer directly to these services without having to ask your GP to refer you.
To access the Community Podiatry Services contact your local area:
Glasgow – 0141 347 8909
Lanarkshire – 01236 731881
If your foot and ankle condition is not improving or if you require further assessment, you may be referred to the Orthopaedic APP for review.
Although you may have already undergone podiatry management before, the specialist podiatrist in the Orthopaedic Department has an advanced role having undertaken additional orthopaedic training. They work in a similar role to the orthopaedic consultants and can arrange and manage further tests such as x-rays, MRI scans and blood tests. In addition, assessment and discussions about foot and ankle surgery can be carried out by our APP Podiatrist.
Appointments with the orthopaedic podiatrist
Appointments to see our specialist podiatrists are arranged by medical professionals. If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment that has already been organised for you at Glasgow Royal Infirmary Orthopaedic Podiatry Department, please use our Patient Focused Booking lines open during office hours.
