About Malachy O'Mullan.

Malachy graduated from the ‘Northern Ireland School of Podiatry in 1984 with a distinction.

Malachy is a ‘Podiatrist’ with almost 40 years 'Professional' experience & is affiliated with the following professional bodies.

      –  Member of ‘The Royal College of Podiatry’ (London).

      –  Member of ‘The Royal College of Podiatry’ (Northern Ireland branch).

      –  Regulated by the ‘Health & Care Professions’ Council  ‘HCPC’ (London).

      –  Associate member of the ‘Royal Society of Medicine’ (London).


A few weeks after Malachy's professional graduation’ in July 1984, Malachy quickly commenced practice with the National Health Service where he worked in the Downpatrick, Ballynahinch & Newcastle areas of Co.Down.

As a 21 year old ‘Graduate Podiatrist’, Malachy worked alongside his ‘fabulous' manager, mentor and highly respected colleague, Mrs Mary O’Prey.

Podiatry services were provided for;

    –  An ‘Acute hospital’ facility.

    –  A ‘Minor Surgery Clinic’.

    –  A ‘Phsychiatric hospital’ facility.

    –  A number of ‘Community based’ clinics.

    –  Domicile Podiatry services for the Downpatrick, Newcastle & Ballynahinch districts of Co.Down.

In January of 1986, Malachy relocated (within the NHS) to work in the Lisburn Road, Balmoral & Finaghy districts of South Belfast.

In early 1987, the current 'Practice' premises (26 Finaghy Road South) were purchased.

In October of 1987, Malachy was promoted within the 'South Belfast Podiatry Department’.

In November 1987, (after significant refurbishment works) the current practice opened at 26 Finaghy Road South.


When first opened, 'The Practice' operating hours were Mon - Fri, (5 pm - 9 pm) & Saturday’s 8 am - 1 pm.

In the ‘Spring’ of 1998, Malachy resigned from his position in the 'National Health Service' & commenced full time ‘Private Practice’ at 26 Finaghy Road South.

In the Spring of 2018,  Malachy celebrated a fabulous milestone of 30 successful years in private practice.

On 23rd September 2022,  Malachy received the annual  "Royal College of Podiatry Award"

                                             (the awards ceremony held in the 'House of Lords' (Palace of Westminster in London).

10th January 2024 - (the new completely reconstructed 'Practice Website' went 'Online').

Foot Health Matters apologises for any inconvenience that the reconstruct may have caused. 

As another milestone approaches in July of 2024.

I very happily look back over my 40 years in professional Podiatry and I can truthfully say that I would do it all again!   

To date, I have had the absolute pleasure of helping many many people across our broad society with simple & complex foot ailments.

At the same time, I have also enjoyed the benefits of a fabulous career and an unending term of employment!

Malachy continues to hope for many more years ahead!
