Deals with unplanned orthopaedic needs. Consultant surgeons operate and review patients 7 days a week.
The Trauma Service accepts a wide range of emergencies from fractures to complex polytrauma.
The fracture clinic is a busy department which sees thousands of patients a year.
I was seen in the Emergency Department yesterday, why do I need to come back to clinic?
Trauma clinic is split to see new patient referrals in the morning and follow-ups in the afternoon.
Patients are seen by the plaster room staff if required for cast immobilisation or splinting.
The trauma service is led by Mr James Murray, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
