The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Trauma & Orthopaedic Outpatients’ Clinics

Our Outpatient department is part of both the general Trauma and Orthopaedics department and the Major Trauma Service at Leeds General Infirmary. They both belong to the Trauma Related Services (TRS) Clinical Service Unit (CSU) of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Trauma and orthopaedic team care for various trauma-related injuries and conditions, with each patient’s treatment, managed to their needs. 

Our clinics run every weekday; and are separated into General Fracture Clinics and Specialist Orthopaedic Trauma Clinics to ensure that patients are seen by the appropriate consultant for specialised care.

To ensure that referred patients to our outpatient service are treated in the appropriate clinic, referrals are first reviewed by our Virtual Fracture Clinic

Patient individual cases are discussed alongside one of our consultants to determine the appropriate clinic for the patient to attend in our department. This ensures that patients’ referral pathway suffers minimal delays, and the referred patients are prioritised appropriately and seen, if required, at the specialist rather than general fracture clinics.
