Patient Support

Being involved in a medical emergency or serious accident can change your life drastically. It can be difficult for both a patient and their family. 

If you have received treatment from our crew, the support doesn't end once you reach hospital.

Whether you have unanswered questions, or need someone to talk to, we are here to help you throughout your recovery.

The Limbless Association (LA) is a national limb loss charity, which has been supporting amputees and their families across the UK since 1983. Losing one or more limbs can be isolating, adversely affecting a person’s mental as well as physical wellbeing. We provide free, high-quality information, advice and support to anyone pre- or post-amputation or living with congenital limb loss.

Our services include the LA Helpdesk, legal advice, Volunteer Visitor peer support, Support and Connect outreach and online events, LA information pack, Young Ambassador programme, AmpLAfy podcast and our StepForward magazine. We make no charge for these services: call Freephone 0800 644 0185, email or visit
