The trauma clinic is split to see new patient referrals in the morning and follow-ups in the afternoon.
New referrals are seen every morning in the New Fracture Clinic by the consultant on call and there is a New Fracture Clinic every day. This clinic is run by appointment only. Outside of working hours the reception staff in the Emergency Department can make appointments for patients if necessary.
Follow-up patients are seen in the afternoons and each team sees their patients on a different afternoon.
Follow up patients are not seen at any other time unless specifically directed by the Consultant and after discussion with the Nurse in Charge.
