Clinic Appointments

If you require a clinic appointment or wish to enquire about your appointment you can contact the outpatient department on 01983 534161.
Our clinics take place on Wednesdays and Fridays at St Mary´s Hospital.

Associated Services

We have a close working relationship with occupational therapists and physiotherapists. For some conditions and for some patients after having surgery, hand therapy forms a vital part of the treatment. Where required we may be able to organise specialist hand therapy and splintage on the day that you are seen in clinic.

Day Surgery

Most hand surgery is done as day surgery. This means that the majority of patients will attend the hospital on the day of surgery have their operation and go home later that day.
