The Amputee Support Group invites any person who has had an amputation, or may need an amputation, as well as their friends, relatives, partners or neighbours.
The Amputee Support Group is designed to enable you to share your experiences or take the opportunity to talk about any issue or concern regarding the amputation which may be affecting your life. It is also a chance to hear how other people in a similar situation manage. Other attendees may have ideas on how your can handle any changes that have either happened whilst in hospital or following discharge.
The Amputee Support Group runs every Wednesday 11am-12pm. Each session lasts 60 minutes and is held at the Royal Free Hospital in the ADL kitchen area, lower ground floor.
The support group is facilitated by Nicholas Evans, clinical nurse specialist vascular surgery and Helen Reece, amputee rehab assistant. They are both members of the amputee team at the Royal Free Hospital.
