Meet Our Team in Livingston
Hi, my name is Scott Campbell, I am originally from Northern Ireland. I qualified with a honours degree in Podiatry and Medicine from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2013. I am a member of Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and The health and care professionals council.
I became interested in Podiatry at the age of 6 when a family member got a verruca and a Podiatrist treated the verruca. I was fascinated watching the treatments that entailed.
My main podiatric interests are verruca needling, biomechanics and nail surgery. I enjoy the variety of patients and treatments that podiatry provides . I also find great satisfaction when a patient can come in limping and leave ‘walking on air’
In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, snowboarding and hill walking. I also enjoy movies and eating out or cooking as much as possible.
I work afternoon to late evenings 12 noon till 8pm on a Monday and Thursday, Wednesday 8am till 4pm and alternate Fridays 8am till 4pm.
I graduated from Southampton University in 2001, returning to my home county of Kent where I worked for just over 5 years for the NHS. During this time I rotated through the specialist areas of Podiatry, Biomechanics/Musculoskeletal Podiatry, Podopaediatrics, Rheumatology, Nail Surgery, Dermatology, Diabetes, the high risk foot and wound care, whilst also carrying out routine Podiatry clinics and managing a domiciliary caseload. By the end of this period I had expanded my Biomechanics/Musculoskeletal knowledge and skills and this was the majority of my caseload.
I then moved into London to Work as Musculoskeletal Clinical Lead for Westminster Primary Care Trust and latterly Central London Community Healthcare where I lead the Musculoskeletal Podiatry Service and worked in multidisciplinary teams to assess and treat complex musculoskeletal problems, I also developed and ran a rotational program for other members of the team to develop their biomechanics and musculoskeletal knowledge and skills and managed a small team which grew with the merger of trusts.
I started here in Oct 2013 work Monday and Thursday mornings 8am until 12noon and Tuesday 12noon until 8pm, I also run our smallholding, coach rugby and like to spend as much time with our dogs as possible outside of Podiatry.
Hi, my name is Ruth Harfield and I have been a Podiatrist for almost 30 years having graduated with Distinction in 1989 with a Diploma in Podiatric medicine. I was also awarded the Langer Biomechanics prize and the May Dewar prize for clinical distinction.
The majority of my career has been based within the NHS where I initially specialised in Biomechanics and Podopaediatrics before moving to High risk Diabetic and wound-care community clinics and into Management. I also gained a post graduate certificate in Clinical leadership.
In more recent years I have added additional training in Verruca dry needling, Lower limb Acupuncture and Low level Laser.
A career highlight occurred In 2005 when I was nominated by the NHS to attend a private function celebrating outstanding contributions to Primary Care. Selected by Downing Street I met the then Prime Minister Tony Blair. An experience I will never forget.
I am HCPC registered and a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
I have worked in Private Practice since 2016 and you can find me in Livingston on a Wednesday evening 4pm until 8pm and alternate Fridays 8am until 4pm.

What is the different between a chiropodist and a podiatrist?
Chiropodists and podiatrists deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb. They are qualified to treat people with arthritis, diabetes, nail surgery and sports injuries. Chiropodists and podiatrists work with people of all ages. In the UK there is no difference between the terms chiropodist and podiatrist.
