To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to ensure that patients who require prosthetic limb replacements are treated locally.
Answered by: Shona Robison 21 December 2017
Prosthetic limb replacements are fitted in one of 5 mobility centres in Scotland – in Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. These assess and fit patients with a range of standard limbs and in most cases will offer every support that the patient needs to ensure mobility is maximised, this includes support at home if the patient’s circumstances indicate this is required.
