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 injected steroidal agents but also injectable innovations such as 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

Somuz is a qualified Sports Injury Practitioner (Diploma Sports injuries & Electro Therapy, 15 years).  He has been practising podiatry for over 17 years and is a Consultant Podiatrist Prescriber & Member of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons Glasgow. He is an OFQUAL and SQA qualified trainer in safeguarding children and adults, first aid, anaphylaxis, oxygen and defibrillation. Somuz has more than 12 years’ experience in teaching/training with qualifications `Certificate Teaching Skill Evidence Based Medicine’, & ‘Level 3 Award in Education & Training’ Certification as well as IOCP`s award for `Outstanding Contribution Towards Education` (2015).
