Everything you are able to give us will be used to support people having limb reconstruction surgery at King’s College Hospital. Our charity is run by volunteers, so we don’t have any overheads and everyone gives their time for free.

Not only do we part fund the salary of a specialist physiotherapist to work in our clinic but this year we have raised enough money to set up a psychological support service for patients of the unit. Research through the Kings College Hospital IMPARTS (Integrated Mental and Physical healthcare Research Training and Services) programme, has demonstrated patients undergoing reconstruction surgery have a real need for access to psychological care. Because of limitations in hospital budgets the charity has agreed to fund a support service in the department. The service has been developed with the assistance of Consultant Psychiatrist, Professor Matthew Hotopf, of King's College London, and will give limb reconstruction patients access to a psychiatrist and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
At present the patient referrals to the service will be needs based and funding has been voted by the charity's trustees that will enable around 8 patients a week to be helped. The need to fund and develop the service is an urgent priority and anything you can give will help us reach our target.
