The service involves the assessment, supply and fitting of orthopaedic footwear, a range of callipers, splints and surgical collars with the intention to assist functioning of a deformed or weakened part of the body.
The Patient Appliance Service is staffed by a trained technical instructor who is supported by an A&C member of staff.
External support is provided weekly by two Orthotists who assess and fit specialized orthoses e.g. custom made fabric supports, orthoses and footwear. We also have access to a podiatrist who also evaluates the use of both insoles and footwear.
