Orthopaedic Trauma service in Nottingham for injuries and emergencies involving fractures or joints & tendons
In the unfortunate event of an injury or emergency:
Depending on the severity, please contact as appropriate:
- Your GP
- NHS ‘walk in centres’
- Dial 999 for an ambulance
- Attend the Accident and Emergency department at Queens Medical Centre, Derby Road, Nottingham. NG7 2UH.
If your injury requires assessment or intervention from an orthopaedic surgeon, your GP or the Accident and Emergency Department will arrange this. Orthopaedic trauma surgeons mainly deal with injuries that involve fractured bones or joints or tendon injuries.
The trauma unit of the Nottingham University Hospital is located at the Queens Medical Centre. It is the regional Major Trauma Unit for the East Midlands region and has an international reputation. It has the expertise and is equipped to deal with any injury from the most severe and life threatening to the less severe but which still requires meticulous treatment to optimise the outcome. A team of skilled orthopaedic trauma surgeons apply the most advanced techniques and instrumentation for the treatment of fractures, in conjunction with dedicated nursing, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
Following a referral to the Orthopaedic Trauma Unit by a GP or the A&E Department, patients will either be admitted directly to a ward at QMC or receive an appointment to attend a ‘fracture clinic’ within a few days.
Several experienced and skilled orthopaedic trauma surgeons practice at the QMC orthopaedic trauma unit, some with specific areas of expertise. Following your initial consultation, when necessary, we will arrange for the most suitable available surgeon to see you. NHS fracture clinics are held daily and you will receive an appointment for the next available appropriate clinic.
If you would like to see Mr Sehat specifically, or you are an existing patient under the care of Mr Sehat and have an enquiry, please contact Mr Sehat’s NHS trauma secretary at QMC on: 0115 – 924 9924 ext 64117.
If your condition is not urgent and you would like to see Mr Sehat privately, please contact the private practice manager on (0115) 896 7641.
Please note that hand injuries and injuries in children are dealt with in specific clinics and not in Mr Sehat’s clinic and spinal injuries are treated by the spinal unit at QMC which is separate from the orthopaedic trauma unit. Following your initial assessment, your GP or the A&E department will make an appointment for you for the relevant clinic.
