Opcare has worked in partnership with the NHS in Cambridge since 2001 to provide Prosthetic and Orthotic Services. We are based in the Addenbrooke’s Rehabilitation Clinic. This is a large Consultant-led service where we employ the orthotic, prosthetic, technical and administrative staff to deliver the service to NHS patients.
Cambridge University Hospitals is one of the largest and best known trusts in the country. As the local hospital for our community they deliver care through Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals. They are also a leading national centre for specialist treatment, a government-designated comprehensive biomedical research centre, one of only five academic health science centres in the UK and a university teaching hospital with a worldwide reputation. Building on these different elements, their vision is to be one of the best academic healthcare organisations in the world.
Monday – Thursday: 08:00 – 17:00, Friday: 08:00 – 16:00
Clinics run between 09:30 and 16:30 Monday to Thursday, and until 15:30 Friday.
This service is available to patients who have technical problems with their prosthesis, and it can allow the patient to be seen in clinic sooner. However, if the problem is related to socket fit/comfort, alignment or prescription the patient needs to make an appointment with their Prosthetist.
