If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you come unless you hear otherwise. See all our information about COVID-19, including our most current visiting information.

Orthotic community service

Our community orthotic service provides a range of orthoses (artificial aids that support unstable and/or painful joints) including:

  • footwear
  • insoles
  • ankle foot orthoses
  • knee braces
  • spinal braces/supports
  • upper limb orthoses
  • compression garments
  • custom-made orthoses.

We are primarily located at the Bowley Close Rehabilitation Centre, and we are linked with the diabetic foot clinic at King's College Hospital.

We run specialised orthotic clinics for children at Sunshine House and the Mary Sheridan Centre.

More information about our adult services is on the Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust website.
