OPAS is a fully menu driven system that has been developed specifically for Orthotic Departments, dealing with all your administration requirements.

Work on OPAS commenced in 1994 under the guidance of the Orthotic Department of the North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke and is now used in over 100 hospitals throughout the United Kingdom.

Development is ongoing to keep in line with changes made within the NHS and Orthotic industry.




Make manual appointments, or get OPAS to automatically search for the next available appointment when the patients order has been received.

Print a variety of appointment and collection letters instantly or in batches.

Monitor clinic performance, attendance and RTT status.




History deals with patient appliance orders.

The progress of orders can be tracked as key dates are held against each order i.e. expected supply date, date appliance received, date appliance issued to the patient.

Highlight those orders that have not been received by the expected supply date.

Log supplier invoice details and electronically update Oracle Financials.

A variety of reports are available to analyse orders e.g. by item, purchaser, directorate, consultant to paper or spreadsheet.




The day-to-day use of OPAS revolves around the Patients database.

Add new orders, notes, appointment, care episodes and waiting list, and view existing information against specific patients.

Utilise patient information to produce reports and letters to a particular group of patients i.e. all those that live in a certain area or with the same GP.
