Virtual Fracture Clinic


The orthopaedic team in our virtual fracture clinics review selected cases following attendance at the emergency department, or urgent care centre, who have been booked into the virtual fracture clinic. You do not need to attend the hospital for the assessment to take place.

Clinicians will look at your X-rays and medical notes, and a trained experienced orthopaedic physiotherapist, or nurse, will telephone to discuss your treatment and management. 

Following the phone call, you may be discharged by phone or if you require further specialist help you will be referred to the most appropriate clinic to meet your needs. If you are not available on the telephone a message will be left where possible.

Patients and their GP will both receive a letter outlining the assessment and outcome.
