A Bit About Me

Pamela Martin

Experienced podiatrist with over 20 years experience specialising in foot and ankle injuries. My expertise lies in diagnosing and treating various lower extremity conditions, with a focus on biomechanical alignment and rehabilitation.


Highly skilled in the design and implementation of custom orthotics and insoles, dedicated to providing patients with tailored solutions to alleviate pain and improve mobility.

As a practitioner dedicated to providing personalised care and attention, I maintain a low patient volume to ensure each individual receives the highest level of care. This allows me to devote ample time to understanding and addressing your specific needs, ensuring the best possible outcomes through a dedicated and compassionate approach.

2004 - 2024

Instep Podiatry - Director

Instep Podiatry started as a single clinic in 2004 and has grown into four successful practices across West Lothian.


Known for its high standards and compassionate care, the organisation attracted top practitioners committed to excellent patient care.

In 2024, Pamela decided to transfer ownership to the current practitioners to ensure these high standards continue. Today, under new ownership, the clinics remain trusted providers of podiatric care in West Lothian, reflecting Pamela's dedication and vision.
