Better Care

Prosthetics/Amputee Service

The prosthetics and amputee rehabilitation service is a dedicated service for the people who have undergone an upper or lower limb amputation arising from trauma, disease or congenital problems.  

The service also provides a paediatric clinic along with a transition clinic for young people.

Who is the service for?

The service is for anyone requiring rehabilitation due to limb loss, following surgery (or congenital deformity) that may benefit from provision of an artificial limb (prosthesis).

Referral Process

Your hospital consultant will usually refer you but your GP or any other health professional involved in your care can refer you. You may be seen initially by one of our team whilst you are still an inpatient or you may attend the centre directly as an outpatient. You will receive an appointment within 18 weeks of referral.

A multidisciplinary team consisting of the above clinicians will assess you. If you are suitable for a limb you will be seen by a Prosthetist and have regular Physiotherapy involvement which will be followed up by your consultant every six months for the first year.
