If you have been diagnosed with a shoulder or elbow problem, you may be referred into the multi-disciplinary service to be assessed by a member of the team. You may be seen either by an Orthopaedic Surgeon, Registrar or Specialist Physiotherapist. We cover all aspects of shoulder & elbow surgery, including primary shoulder and elbow arthroplasty, revision shoulder arthroplasty, instability (dislocations), rotator cuff problems, acromioclavicular pathology, frozen shoulders and shoulder and elbow trauma.
One Stop Clinic
The One Stop Clinic is a modern patient centred take on a traditional service, offering same day consultations, scans and treatment for patients. Since October 2020 the one stop clinic has provided a more streamlined approach to patient care, offering timely interventions and saving patients multiple trips to the hospital environment.
Soft Tissue Shoulder Injury Clinic
This clinic is run by 2 specialist upper limb physiotherapists and aims to capture patients who have experienced a recent traumatic soft tissue injury, ensuring patients have fast access to specialist clinicians. We see shoulder dislocations, suspected rotator cuff tears, acromioclavicular joint injuries, biceps tendon, pectoralis major tendon and triceps tendon ruptures, and any other shoulder girdle soft tissue injury requiring specialist input. We aim to see patients within 2 weeks of referral where they are clinically assessed and referred for further imaging or physiotherapy treatment as appropriate. Those with a significant soft tissue injury can be fast-tracked for surgery.

Patient Reported Outcome Measures
Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM’s) are a tool that is increasingly used to try to improve the care of surgical patients. PROM’s are structured questionnaires that record the patients’ symptoms directly. All new patients are added to the PROM’s system and can be accessed by patients to input their information. The PROM’s system is not compulsory and patients may opt out at any point.
