Fracture Clinics

The fracture clinics are for patients whose injury has already been treated and further follow-up of that injury is needed.

Follow-up is needed to monitor progress and to decide when other steps in management, such as re-manipulation of a fracture, removal of a cast or change of the management plan, are required. Sometimes an x-ray is taken before you are seen in the clinic.

Although you have been given an appointment time, the time to have x-rays, casts removed, and have other treatments may take a few hours. At other times appointments may be much quicker, especially if your treatment is progressing smoothly.

Please tell the reception staff if you have other commitments that mean you would like to leave the clinic promptly. They will tell the clinic staff who will try to keep any delay to a minimum.
