Short description:

The Orthotics Service is committed to continuing improvement in the quality and cost effectiveness of the orthotic devices provided, ensuring products are delivered with prompt, reliable delivery times, and reducing the number of faulty orthotic devices needing to be returned.

The orthotics service at Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust is part of the Clinical Support Directorate. It is managed by the orthotics service manager, and staffed with allied health professionals (occupational therapist, physiotherapist, clinical orthotics technicians and an orthotist).

The emphasis is on ‘self-help’ where possible, aiming to keep patients out of medically prescribed footwear and orthotic devices. We want to work in partnership with contractor/s who share our aims for a first class, patient centred and cost effective service. This contract is for contractor/s to work with us to provide orthotic devices of the highest quality, and who share our core trust values.
