Trauma and Orthopaedics

A trauma patient is someone who has suffered a serious and life-threatening physical injury who could develop further complications, such as shock or respiratory failure. Orthopaedics is the branch of medical science concerned with disorders or deformities of the spine and joints.

The Trauma and Orthopaedic Department offers 24-hour trauma services and general orthopaedic services, as well as sub-specialist services. 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.

Patient Information

Many patients with hand and arm injuries that require surgery can be allowed home to wait for day case surgery. We call this Patch & Plan.

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 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 if we have difficulty contacting you. If we are unable to contact you by phone it may delay your surgery.

Patch & Plan operating lists are held on Tuesdays and Fridays in the Birmingham Treatment Centre at City Hospital. We aim to put you on the next available list. There is also a one hand trauma list at Sandwell on Thursday morning. Not all cases are suitable for this list.

For a morning list: you will be asked to arrive at 07:30am (08:00 at Sandwell). You should have no food after 3am on the day of admission and may drink plain water until 6am.

For an afternoon list: you will be asked to arrive at 12:00am. You should have no food after 6am on the day of admission and may drink plain water until 11:00am

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

Ask the switchboard to bleep us by name or bleep number:
