Forms and contact details for referrals to the Trauma Triage Service have changed.
Changes to the process will ensure an orthopaedic consultant review of all fractures. This will be done electronically (without patient present) within 72 hours of referral. Patients will be contacted by telephone to agree their management plan.
Please follow the resource link below to the referral form. Alongside referring the patient, also give the patient a copy of the Fracture Clinic information letter found here.
The Trauma and Orthopaedic Department offers a full range of services for both adults and children including treating disorders of the body's bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
In addition to the numerous Consultant led clinics, specialised nurse and physiotherapy led clinics are also held and the plaster room provides a specialised service to patients requiring plaster casts, braces and splints.
Information leaflets are available for many of the conditions seen in the department.
