The Trust


The Adult Orthotic Department is situated in the Orthopaedic Unit at Macclesfield District General Hospital and treats a large range of inpatients and outpatients from orthopaedics to neurology.

Through consultant referrals patients are seen by an orthotist who would have trained in orthotics and prosthetics. The orthotic service treats all body segments to reduce pain, accommodate deformities and improve function and mobility.   


The appliances

Appliances supplied by the orthotic service include, helmets, spinal braces, abdominal and hernia supports, footwear, insoles and callipers and compression stockings. We are available for ward jobs providing removable appliances to stabilize spinal fractures and hip dislocations.
The department also employs a hairdresser as wigs are provided. There are standard NHS charges for the supply of wigs, some spinal supports, and compression stockings.
