Weston Trauma Service

Of course, not all surgery is planned and at Weston we also operate on trauma injuries – which covers anything from a twisted ankle to multiple fractures and internal injuries.

Broken bones that require surgical intervention are discussed at our daily trauma meeting, where we decide how to best manage the injuries of patients who have come in overnight.
Every fracture diagnosed in the Accident and Emergency department is also seen in a scheduled fracture clinic as soon as possible afterwards to ensure adequate management is instigated.
Trauma is a large percentage of our workload. We provide an excellent level of care for our local area and were assessed as having the best results in the country for our management of neck of femur (hip) fractures in a national survey.
