You can self-refer to Proactive without having to go through your primary healthcare provider.
All prospective patients are invited for an assessment, for which we normally charge a small fee.
The purpose of this assessment is to understand your background which includes an assessment of the current prosthetic limb fit and function (if applicable) but will also explore the prosthetic care and rehabilitation experienced to date. We will take your medical history, conduct a gait assessment (walking) and assess your residual limb.
The meeting is also an opportunity to establish goals and talk about issues, barriers and concerns that help to build a good picture of what you require. It would help us greatly in making an assessment if you could record what social, sporting and day-to-day activities you took part in prior to the amputation, what you can do now and what you would like to be able to do again.
We will discuss future prognosis in relation to your amputation and the different prosthetic (artificial limb) options available to you.
Finally, we will provide a letter outlining the findings and recommendations together with an estimate of the costs.
Please contact us for more details or to arrange an appointment.
