Referral Guidance

Patients can be referred into the Orthotic Department by completing a GP Open Access form. Please provide details regarding which orthosis is required, if this is a repeat referral, and the patient’s condition/diagnosis. Alternatively a referral letter can be sent to the department detailing the appliance(s) required.

Upon referral the orthotics service will fully assess and provide the required orthoses to stabilise the patient’s condition in line with the treatment pathway - the agreed local access tariff will apply. Once stable the patient will be discharged by the Orthotics service back to the GP with guidance for the on-going management of the patient. Any replacement of prescribed orthoses should be referred back to the service by the GP using the Direct Access pathway.

The waiting list is now 4 weeks.
