"Orthotics Service"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

I have been having shoes made for me by what I thought was a centre of excellence. Having now used MKH for the first time, I realise how wrong I was. The member of staff who fitted the shoes was superb. He explained in full detail why I was in so much pain when I walked and why the shoes were not fit for purpose. I have been in considerable discomfort for years but just accepted this to be part of my condition. After only six weeks, I am in a pair of shoes that are actually comfortable. I cannot praise the Milton Keynes Hospital Orthotics service enough. Even the admin team were superb - even managed to squeeze me in between patients so that i could have my shoes before I went on holiday. Excellent at every level!
