Trauma and the management of injuries accounts for fifty per cent of the department's work. All fracture and orthopaedic clinics take place in clinic 1b.

NHS England is committed to making more information available about how services and professionals are performing. The aim is to drive up the quality of care and to help people choose the treatment that suits them best. This initiative is a central part of NHS England's ambition to ensure every patient gets high quality care, and to build improved services for the future. Now, patients can find out information about individual consultants in a number of clinical areas. You can look at their results for a range of operations and treatments to help you make decisions about your care.

The referral process remains the same for an outpatient appointment or surgery, please contact your GP.
