    Virtual Fracture Clinics

    Following attendance at A&E, fractures or possible fractures are referred on to the Virtual Fracture Clinic.

    The Orthopaedic Consultants review the x-rays the following day virtually. This means injuries are assessed initially by the team without the need for you to attend hospital.

    Patients are then called to be given advice and to be informed whether or not an appointment within the hospital is needed.

    Clinics / wards

    Inpatient care is provided in a 42 bedded Trauma and Orthopaedic unit across two main wards: Greville (Elective) and Thomas (Trauma). Elective surgery patients are cared for in a MRSA free environment.

    All elective patients will undergo an assessment in Pre-Operative Assessment Clinic (POAC) to ensure they are medically fit for surgery.
