Specialists in private medical treatment.


Buchanan Clinic is a brand of Buchanan Orthotics.

Buchanan Orthotics is a family-owned business which operates from offices and a central fabrication unit in Govan, where we manufacture modular, bespoke and specialist footwear, insoles, plastics and fabric supports.

Over the last 60 years, the company has evolved from a Surgical Appliances shop on Woodlands Road, Glasgow (first started by Mr J.Buchanan) prior to the Second World War, to a UK-wide manufacturing service company. The company has previously had locations across Scotland before centralising at our current Factory and Warehouse facility on Helen Street, Glasgow. We pride ourselves for our dedicated staff who have played vital roles in supporting the wonderful NHS.

We have been supplying the NHS and private patients with specialist medical treatments since 1955, we currently supply clinical services to the NHS in the following Health Board regions:

  • NHS Glasgow
  • NHS Ayrshire
  • NHS Lanarkshire
  • NHS Forth Valley
  • NHS Highland
  • NHS Torbay and South Devon

We currently also provide the Orthotic service in several Health Trusts across the UK and offer contracted manufacturing services in a further six.

Buchanan Orthotics now have a broad customer base across the entire UK and Ireland, where we are one of the leading suppliers of Orthopaedic footwear. We have established a reputation for supplying Orthotic products to all the major companies within the UK and Ireland. The company is the only Orthotic Service provider left in Scotland, and the only Orthopaedic footwear manufacturer. We have some complex footwear patients who have been coming to the company for over 40 years.

Buchanan Orthotics also supplies Orthopaedic and Bespoke footwear across the UK & Ireland and has many private bespoke footwear customers.

Buchanan Orthotics has been registered to ISO 9001 Quality Management standard since 1999 and currently work to Quality Standards ISO 9001:2015.  As part of this process, we encourage improvements in all aspects of working practice and all relevant health and safety regulations.
