Who We Are & What We Do
Pamela McGeachan, our orthotist has a wealth of experience and her passion is to provide the best orthotic care possible, where you feel valued and listened to.
In 2012 she began working at Nottingham University Hospitals where she gained insightful experience into biomechanics and treating complex foot and ankle conditions.
To further her experience Pamela relocated to London in 2014 to take up an orthotic role within the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London where she developed a keen interest in treating spinal conditions and designing orthoses for foot and ankle weaknesses and deformities. She also worked extensively with patient’s living with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.
After a brief spell of working in the Orthotic department in Southend – on – Sea, Pamela decided to move back to her home town of East Kilbride and start Mac Orthotics.
Within this time Pamela took on a part time position in the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde orthotics department which is renowned for its evidence based orthotic service. Here she expanded her knowledge in the design and production of CAD CAM insoles and enhanced her technical workshop skills.
Mac Orthotics was formed in 2016 to provide top quality orthotic care throughout the UK.
Pamela travelled extensively up and down the country, providing orthotic clinical cover and gaining more in-depth knowledge of the orthotic industry. She has worked in locations from Inverness, Aberdeen, Carlisle, working all the way down to Kent. She has enjoyed covering children’s orthotic clinics in Essex both clinical and school based and expanded her knowledge in diabetic orthotic care at the prestigious Kings College Hospital in London.
