I am flat footed, have painfull feet and poblems walking, xrays show moderate arthritis in toes and feet. I was sent by my GP to see a podiatrist who told me nothing can be done that I have to live with it. Can anyone give me a bit of advice on where to go with this.

I think you can be helped with some orthoptic inner soles for your shoes. See if you can find a more helpful Podiatrist. Also I recommend having some reflexology. Invest in comfortable footwear. I know how it feels as I have suffered with painful feet over the past 3 years. Thankfully feet are good currently (but knees now affected !).
Physiotherapy is good.
