The fracture clinic is located on the ground floor of St Mary’s near the main entrance. Please report to the receptionist when you arrive.
Fracture clinics can often be very busy especially during the summer. Patients with injuries need to have their treatments at set times so the clinic can never be full, we won’t delay the removal of a cast because we are busy.
Preparing for you Fracture Clinic appointment.
Please make sure you have taken any prescribed pain relief before you come. You may have to sit and wait, and we don’t want you to be in pain.
If you were injured on the mainland or abroad please bring any copies of notes of x-rays that were supplied to you.
You should not drive or ride a motorbike if you are in cast or splint unless this has already been agreed by your insurance company and Doctor. Once you are out of cast the consultant may advise about when you can return to driving, but you still need to check that your insurers are happy.
