Tayside Rehabilitation Engineering Services

The Dundee Limb Fitting Centre was opened on 20th September 1965 and occupied “The Lodge”, a house built by John Don of William, John Don & Company and which had housed a Red Cross hospital during the First World War and then the Infant Hospital. The Centre was the first special purpose in-patient facility in the United Kingdom to offer a comprehensive, integrated service to amputees.

In 1994 the Centre became part of the Dundee Teaching Hospital NHS trust.

In 1979 the title Tayside Rehabilitation Engineering Services was adopted to embrace the full range of activities at the Centre and its sister unit in Dundee Royal Infirmary.
