Staff on the unit will always strive to be friendly and professional.
Outpatient and pre-assessment facilities
Outpatient consultations and fracture clinic are held mainly at the Royal South Hants Hospital.
Review clinics which you attend after attending the Emergency Department (A&E) with an orthopaedic condition are held at Southampton General Hospital.
Pre-assessment clinics are mainly held at the Southampton General Hospital site. However, as part of our drive to continually improve the service to our patients, we have started bringing the pre-assessment process forward to selected outpatient clinics.
