Trauma and Orthopaedics

The Trust’s Trauma and Orthopaedic department provides a range of services, including the fracture clinic and plaster services, as well treating patients with soft tissue injuries.
We offer a range of emergency and elective orthopaedics services including:

  • Trauma service for patients suffering a traumatic orthopaedic injury to the musculoskeletal system, such as broken, fractured or dislocated bones and soft tissue injuries. This service is consultant delivered and takes the form of responding to Accident and Emergency, outpatient and virtual clinics, inpatient and day case surgery.
  • Elective orthopaedic service which involves outpatient consultations for a range of sub specialties including, hip and knee, foot and ankle, shoulder and elbow and hand. Elective surgery is offered on both an inpatient or day case basis, as appropriate.

The orthopaedic team is progressive and new procedures are offered to the patients only after they have been assessed thoroughly.

Our team of consultant orthopaedic surgeons are supported by junior medical staff and clinical nurse practitioners providing a wide range of services for most trauma and orthopaedic conditions. There is a constant audit process, and all efforts are made to give the highest quality of treatment to our patients.

Many patients with hand and arm injuries that require surgery can be allowed home to wait for day case surgery. We call this our “Patch & Plan” service. We have recently expanded our service to include some lower limb trauma as well.

To be suitable for day surgery you need to be reasonably fit for your age and have an adult who can collect you from the hospital. You will need an adult at home with you overnight.

If you are told you will be contacted with a time to come in please make sure the doctor or nurse has written your contact phone number(s) down correctly. Please keep your phone battery charged and your phone turned on.  You are most likely to be contacted between 8am-4pm Monday to Friday. Calls from the hospital will appear as 0121 687 4071 or 0121 532 4297 but you cannot ring back on this number. We may send a text to your mobile phone if we have difficulty in contacting you. If we are unable to contact you by phone it may delay your surgery.

The Patch & Plan operating lists are held in the Birmingham Treatment Centre at City Hospital and occasionally at Sandwell Hospital. We aim to put you on the next available list. There are also hand trauma lists at Sandwell Hospital. Not all cases are suitable for these lists.

For morning surgery: you will be asked to arrive at 7:30am or 8am at Sandwell. You should have no food after 3am on the day of admission and may drink plain water until 6am.

For afternoon surgery: you will be asked to arrive at 12pm. You should have no food after 6am on the day of admission and may drink plain water until 11am.

These lists are co-ordinated by Surgical Care Practitioners in Trauma and Orthopaedics. They may be contacted (Mon-Fri 8am-4pm) via the hospital switchboard on 0121 554 3801.
