Clinical Concept

The Rapid Access Foot & Ankle Clinic was introduced in 2015 in an effort to reduce waiting times for Professor Stephen Kearns and provide first class conservative management to all of our patients. The clinic deals with a wide range of musculoskeletal and podiatric problems and is managed by Clinical Specialist Podiatrists Caoimhe Hoey and Marie Hegarty.

Caoimhe and Marie work closely with Professor Kearns to ensure continuity of care for all patients assessing and providing appropriate conservative treatments and arranging appropriate referrals where necessary. The clinic aims to reduce waiting times for Professor Kearns by assessing and treating patients who may not need a surgical review initially and therefore make our overall practice more efficient.

Caoimhe and Marie deal with a wide range of different conditions and accepts direct referrals from GPs and other health care professionals.
