GP Information

The aim of The Foot and Ankle Centre Tunbridge Wells is to provide a first class, fully integrated service for your patients with any foot and ankle problem; from the simplest verruca to the most complex foot deformity.


In an emergency situation Mr Ritchie can usually see your patient within 24 hours (Monday to Saturday). He is also very happy to give advice to doctors regarding any foot and ankle problem. Please telephone our secretaries on 01892 740990 or The Spire Hospital (after office hours) on 01892 740047.


We accept referrals by telephone, fax, e mail and post.

It is always helpful if we can be informed of any relevant past medical history or of any medication the patient is currently taking, particularly with regard to anti coagulants and aspirin.

Referrals may be made specifically to Mr Ritchie, Mrs Pettican (our podiatrist) or the physiotherapists at The Foot and Ankle Centre Tunbridge Wells. If you are unsure of who would be best suited to see your patient, please write a generic referral letter and we will offer them an appointment in the most appropriate clinic. 

Educational Meetings

Mr Ritchie holds regular talks and education evenings locally. For the next meeting please see our news page.

If there is a particular topic you would like covered during these lectures or if you would like Mr Ritchie to come to your practice for an educational meeting please do not hesitate to contact our secretaries.


We are constantly trying to improve the service we offer patients. We therefore welcome any feedback regarding our service both positive or negative. Please forward any comments either via e-mail: or by telephone on 01892 740990.
