Martin Harvey, PGCert, BSc, MInstChP, MCPodS

Martin has been at the forefront of developing soft tissue injection therapy in Podiatry for more than a decade. He regularly uses and teaches the use of not only Dermal fillers but also injectable innovations such as PRP, steroid injection therapy, prolotherapy, hyaluronic acid agents and botulinum toxins. As one of the early supplementary prescribers in UK podiatry, he was closely involved in developing independent prescribing, working with the Department of Health and the National Prescribing Centre plus UK Universities. As a registered now fully independent prescriber, he can share his detailed pharmacological understanding in a readily comprehensible fashion that helps delegates to gain the effective knowledge they require to be safe and effective users of these potent agents.

Martin introduced the first such courses for podiatrists nearly ten years ago.
