Principle Consultant: Michael Thompson (BCs Hons, MChS, HCPC registered)

Michael Thompson (BCs Hons, MChS, SRCh, HPC registered)

Michael graduated in 2001 with an honours degree in Podiatry from Glasgow Caledonian University. Gaining a position with Selby and York PCT he developed a great interest in the biomechanical aspect of podiatry and started to work closely with the specialists within the department developing his skills.

In 2006 he moved to Australia to develop and further his biomechanical knowledge. Taking up positions in both a private practice and in the health service he learnt and practiced a wide range of skills and techniques, including video gait analysis. Working within many multi-disciplinary teams he has regularly worked with the physiotherapists, orthotists and occupational therapists to provide the most effective treatment.

In 2008 Michael moved back to the UK and joined the North Somerset Primary Care Team in the role of lead podiatrist in biomechanics, orthotics and musculoskeletal treatments. While working in North Somerset Michael initially had two roles, working as the lead in biomechanics for both the Podiatry and the Musculoskeletal Interface Service.  As the Musculoskeletal Service has grown he has changed his NHS role to concentrate as the specialist lead in biomechanics for this service. He works closely with the local Orthopaedic and Rheumatology departments, along with doing some work with Bristol Rugby, which have broadened his knowledge and treatment regimes in relation to musculoskeletal problems.

Michael is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council, and a member of The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. Michael is also part of the Somerset Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Cinic.
