Caring for patients is a core reason for existence. It is embodied in everything we do, and everything we are. Unfortunately, our staff are not medically trained, so are unable to provide patient information on the latest ‘best-practice’ or ‘best surgeon’.
However, we do maintain and encourage a vibrant Patient Liaison Group, who periodically produce guidance aimed at patient preparation for operations and procedures. Their most recent activities and guidance can be found below.
We also enjoy strong partnerships with our sister Orthopaedic organisations in other countries and highly recommend that patients wishing to find out further information on specific conditions visit the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) website. There, you will find an additional, comprehensive library of information accessible to the public.
The NHS Choices website offers patients a huge amount of relevant information and covers the majority of conditions that are important for patients.
