Welcome to the King's College Hospital Limb Reconstruction Trust website.

The King’s College Hospital Limb Reconstruction Trust (KLRT) is a registered charity founded in 2007 to support patients of the hospital's limb reconstruction unit. Among its trustees are specialist surgeons and nurses, other professionals and former patients. It was set up to:
          • support medically, physically, psychologically and socially King’s College Hospital patients undergoing limb reconstruction treatment;
          • increase awareness about disability and to change attitudes to it.

We are the only charity that caters for the specialist needs of limb reconstruction patients . Typically we provide vital treatment to patients undergoing limb reconstruction as a result of high trauma e.g. servicemen and women sports injuries and congenital limb deformities. These injuries have life changing consequences for the patients and their families with a high psychological element.

We have a number of major achievements which have been secured through our fundraising efforts and the dedication of our trustees and supporters.

These are programmes that will speed the recovery and rehabilitation of patients
