The Royal College of Nursing has announced that industrial action will take place on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February. We'll contact you if your care or your child's care is affected. Ambulance workers are planning strike action on Friday 10 February. Learn more.

A number of transport strikes are due to take place this February. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Orthotics (community) referrals

Who can refer to the orthotics service?

Consultants, AHPs and GPs. Private referrals are not accepted.

How to make a referral

Please post or email your referral to the address in the referral contact box.

You must state clearly the reason for referral, along with the following information:

  • the patient's name, date of birth and contact details
  • the patient's NHS number
  • the patient's GP, including contact details
  • a diagnosed condition and current clinical presentations/signs
  • relevant medical history and any concurrent treatment
  • any transport or interpreter services which may be required.

Electronic referrals are also accepted through the EPR system at King's College Hospital.

We aim to process all referrals received within two working days, following which a letter is sent out to the referred patient inviting them to contact the department and arrange an appointment.
