Cardiff ALAC


Your referral to the Artificial Limb and Appliance Services.

Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic we have had to significantly reduce our deliveries and patient visits in line with Government advice on social distancing and protection of both staff and vulnerable patients.

We are therefore unable to process your referral in a normal way, which may result in considerable delay.

In addition we are unable accept drop in appointments and may have to turn patients away if an appointment hasn’t been arranged. Please always ring to arrange an appointment before coming to the centre.

Your referral/ case will be/have been reviewed by a clinician and the following may occur:

  • The clinician may contact you to carry out an initial assessment on the phone.
  • The clinician may contact you or your referrer regarding any further treatment.
  • The clinician may put you on a waiting list and we will arrange an appointment when normal services resume.

If your condition deteriorates significantly while you are awaiting a review please contact us on
