Fracture Clinic: RFL

NCL Wide
Upcoming Review — this page is due to be reviewed by Thursday, 27 June 2024. The information shown here may be outdated.

The orthopaedic team in the virtual fracture clinic reviews cases following attendance at the emergency department or urgent care centre. Patients do not need to attend the hospital for the assessment to take place.

Clinicians will look at X-rays and medical notes, and an orthopaedic physiotherapist or nurse will telephone patients to discuss treatment and management. Following the phone call, patients may be discharged by phone or referred to the most appropriate outpatient clinic to meet their needs. Patients and their GPs will receive a letter outlining the assessment and outcome.

How to Refer


Referral methods: e-Referrals

Fracture clinic appointments are made by referral from accident and emergency departments or urgent care centres. Fracture referrals are welcome by a letter from GPs to the orthopaedic consultants.
