Coronavirus: amputee rehabilitation service update
Due to increased demand on the hospital due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are having to make significant changes to our services.
If you are a patient who has previously been seen in our service and need advice regarding your residual limb or prosthesis, please contact your local outpatient prosthetic centre in the first instance.
However, if you are having difficulty getting the advice you need, please call 020 3049 6912 to speak with one of the clinical team and we will do our best to advise you.
See our frequently asked questions for further information.

We're doing all we can to support teams with clinical guidance regarding new amputees during this challenging time. If you would like any advice from the clinical team, please call 020 3049 6912 or email gst-tr.Arureferrals@nhs.net and we will do our best to help you.
Unfortunately we are currently unable to accept referrals for amputees from hospitals or organisations outside of King's Health Partners (Guy's and St Thomas’ and King's Hospitals). We are unable to run a prosthetic clinic at present and therefore cannot provide prosthetic rehabilitation.
Our frequently asked questions page has answers to common questions we have received from patients.
Our amputee rehabilitation services provide both a specialist rehabilitation unit for adults after major amputation surgery and a prosthesis service for people who need an artificial limb as a result of amputation or congenital (present from birth) abnormality
We have an inpatient unit at Lambeth community care centre and an outpatient service at Bowley Close rehabilitation centre.
