The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


All service users, carers and visitors to Specialist Rehabilitation Services are to wear a face covering unless they are exempt.

The Prosthetic Rehabilitation Service has a full complement of prosthetists and Technicians who specialise in both upper and lower limbs. The clinical staff are employed by together with a consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, specialist physiotherapists, occupational therapist, a dedicated clinical psychologist and rehabilitation engineers. Qualified nursing support is provided along with healthcare assistants.

Following a new (primary) referral to the prosthetic centre, the patient will be assessed by the multi-disciplinary team (MDT). The MDT, in conjunction with the patient, will assess  individual rehabilitation needs and aims of the patient. If, after consultation, a prosthesis (limb) is to be made then the patient will be allocated to their own prosthetist. The prosthetist is responsible for measuring, making and fitting the prosthesis. The process will usually take approximately ten working days, however a limb can be made on the same day by prior arrangement.
