Orthopaedic Podiatry Service

We have a specialised Foot and Ankle Service at Glasgow Royal Infirmary consisting of 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 Podiatry locally in Community Health Centres. You can self-refer directly to the Health Centre 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 you need further assessment, you may be referred to the Orthopaedic Advanced Podiatry Practitioner (APP)  for further assessment.

Although you may have already undergone podiatry management before, the APP Podiatrist in the Orthopaedic Department has an advanced role having undertaken additional Orthopaedic training and works in a similar role to the Orthopaedic Consultant in the clinic. They 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 undertaken by the APP Podiatrist.
