All service users, carers and visitors to Specialist Rehabilitation Services are to wear a face covering unless they are exempt. We are currently running a reduced service. Patients are only being seen at Seacroft Hospital and Wharfedale Hospital. We will update this site when St. James University Hospital and the LGI are re-opening again.
The Orthotics service in Leeds is based over 4 sites:
- Seacroft (which is the main hub),
- St. James's
- Leeds General Infirmary
- and limited clinics at Wharfedale Hospital.
There are six health and care professional council registered Orthotists and one Orthotics assistant who specialises in complex orthoses. The team provide a service for over 20,000 active users.
We provide orthotic treatment solutions to a wide range of conditions including:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Cerebral Palsy.
Orthotic devices are used to provide pressure relief, correct or accommodate deformity and to improve function. Our orthotists will assess for, measure and fit orthotic devices for all parts of the body using bio-mechanic principles.
We run stand alone clinics and also take part in specialist multi-disciplinary clinics such as paediatric orthopaedics, child development, diabetic and rehabilitation, alongside other allied health care professionals and consultants.
We have orthotists with special interests in paediatrics, diabetic care, rehabilitation and orthopaedics, so feel free to contact us if you are unsure as to whether or not we can help.
