We are providing our patients with a streamlined service through video and phone technology.
We are using Attend Anywhere (Video Consultation) and Virtual Clinic (Telephone Consultations) to provide patients with easy access to the service.
If you have sustained an injury and visited the Emergency Department at either Royal Shrewsbury Hospital or Princess Royal Hospital you may have been advised that you will be reviewed in the Virtual Fracture Clinic. A call will be made to you on the telephone number that you have provided us with. Please ensure that your phone is on and able to receive calls where the caller ID is withheld.
The Virtual Fracture Clinic Team consists of senior trauma and orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists and associated practitioners. If the Emergency Department have asked for your care to be reviewed in the Virtual Fracture Clinic you will receive a telephone call by a member of the team to discuss your injury and how best to manage it.
If you’ve not received a phone call within 72hrs of leaving the Emergency Department please call through to the fracture clinic on 01743 261 000 ext 1044 with your name, date of birth, and date of attendance at the Emergency Department.
