Consultation on the proposed relocation of Prosthetic service for North East London and Essex
There will be a 28 day consultation regarding the proposed relocation of the NHSE commissioned prosthetic service for the North East London Region.
This regional service has been delivered by NELFT in a building in Havering for the last 9 years; prior to that, it was delivered in the same premises by a different community provider.
The service is complex as it involves the clinical delivery of assessment and treatment of patients with limb loss. The service is delivered in partnership with the manufacturer of the prosthetics on the same site to support the patient journey. The current manufacturer is a company called Steeper. In order to deliver the service, the building requires both clinical and industrial areas; as such the site has to be of an appropriate size.
