Trauma and Orthopaedics

Trauma and Orthopaedics

The Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics is an extremely busy unit with 13 consultants specialising in all areas of the body, including hip, knee, foot, ankle, shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist.

Patients are either seen as emergencies, through Accident & Emergency, or they are seen in a
Fracture or Orthopaedic clinic. All operations are carried out in our dedicated operating suite, Manfield Theatres, which has four fully-equipped laminar flow theatres (laminar flow is a special air flow used to reduce the risk of infection).

The department has a very low rate of MRSA infection and all patients coming through the department are routinely screened for MRSA (swabs taken from nose and groin).


Abington Ward - for patients with a fractured neck of femur (broken hip)

Althorp Ward - for patients who have a planned (elective) surgery 

Cedar Ward - for patients who are admitted with a trauma

Manfield Day Surgery Unit (MDSU) - day case surgery


All patients are seen in the Fracture and Orthopaedic clinic
