Important Information regarding the Trauma and Orthopaedic Service during the COVID-19 pandemic
 
Due to COVID-19, the way we deliver care within the Trauma and Orthopaedic Service is changing.
All elective (non-emergency) appointments and operations have been cancelled, however Emergency Services will continue, albeit with some changes.
 
All Fracture (Emergency) Clinic Appointments in Nevill Hall Hospital and the Royal Gwent Hospital have been cancelled and relocated to Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr, where all Fracture Clinics for the foreseeable future will be facilitated. If you had an existing Fracture Clinic Appointment at either of these sites, you will receive information regarding a new date and time at Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr.
 
Trauma (Emergency) Surgery will continue to be facilitated at Nevill Hall Hospital and the Royal Gwent Hospital, with some procedures also being conducted at St Woolos Hospital.
 
The Trauma and Orthopaedic Consultants are reviewing patients on a case-by-case basis. The booking/scheduling team will make contact with you if a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon considers it clinically necessary for you to be seen.
 
For any urgent queries, where possible, please contact us on the email addresses below, as telephone lines continue to be extremely busy.
 
We aim to respond to all emails within 48 hours, however given the current situation, responses to queries may be delayed.
