There are currently four Orthotist's based at Rotherham Hospital. You may be seen by any of the clinicians during your appointment but we aim to keep you with the same clinician where possible for clinical continuity.
The department also facilitates training and often has students in the department, these include Students training in Orthotics as well as other Clinical Students such as trainee doctors, podiatrists and physiotherapists. You will be asked if you are happy to have a student present and your treatment will not be effected if you would prefer for them not to observe.
