If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Orthotic community service

Our community orthotic service provides a range of orthoses (artificial aids that support/correct 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 are linked with the diabetic foot clinic and the Frank Cooksey Rehabilitation Unit, both 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.
