Orthotic Department

Orthotics are medical and surgical devices to aid rehabilitation - e.g.:

  • Orthopaedic footwear
  • Insoles
  • Ankle, knee, hip, and spinal braces, etc

Patients are referred by a consultant (we do not accept GP referrals).

Existing patients

If you have not attended the department within the past year, you will be discharged and a GP letter will be required to confirm your condition has not changed.

Following any surgery or changes to your condition, a further review by a consultant will be required.
