Welcome to the Artificial Limb & Appliance Service

A new website is currently under construction – check back soon for updated information.  Thank you.

The Artificial Limb and Appliance Service offers a consistent and equitable service to people in Wales who have a permanent or long-term impairment. It is provided by a unique collaboration between three NHS Trusts and is commissioned via Health Commission Wales (HCW). The three ALAS centres (ALAC's) are situated in  Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham, working together to provide an All-Wales service.

Service overview

Our services are provided on a lifetime basis, with approximately 100 directly employed staff (medical, nursing, therapy, technical, clerical and managerial). They work closely as a multi-disciplinary team with sub-contractors and suppliers to deliver a suitable solution and maximise users potential for rehabilitation into their community.

Our Commitment

The Welsh Artificial Limb & Appliance Service is committed to providing an excellent rehabilitation service to people with an impairment.  Our objective is to maximise ability and minimise disability.
